Fall has arrived! My absolute favorite season...I love the smell of smoky firepits, the sound of leaves crunching under my feet, apples, hot cider, cozy weekend mornings curled up on the couch with a hot mug of tea in my hand, and of course a knitting or crochet project close by.
Current projects on the needles (and hooks) include:
-A second Hibernation blanket (for me). I crocheted one for my dad for Christmas a couple of months ago, using Bernat Blanket, and it turned out so nice and warm that I decided to make one for myself. Also the first crochet project where I got the hang of how to hold the hook. This yarn is so soft and squishy--I'm making my blanket in Bernat Blanket Sparkle, with green/purple/white stripes.
-Still working away on my Colmena Shawl for the Eat.Sleep.Knit Yarnathon 2021. I'm on the garter stitch/cable section and am over halfway through the shawl, so I'm hoping I finish before the end of the year, otherwise it will be a Long Haul for the 2022 yarnathon.
-The second sock in a pair of Hermione's Everyday Socks (also a Yarnathon project). The pattern is so easy to memorize and the socks work up really quick! I'm using Cat Sandwich Fibers Trustie Sock in Polly Pocket and it is making some really fun socks!
-Still working on my Hug Shot Shawl (Wonderland Yarns kit from Eat.Sleep.Knit). It is such a fun pattern and after I'm done with this, I have a bunch of Casapinka patterns that I want to make!
I've also got some Christmas gifts that I'm making--a couple of pairs of tube socks for my dad, and a couple of facecloths for my son.
