Can you tell I'm in a good mood?! This post is Clapotis free *grins* The finished item was previewed last Friday, and will receive it's full glory this Friday, but for today, we're without Clapotis ;)
Which means I am back to working on my other projects at last. Actually, the cabled bag will also be appearing on Friday, as I finished that one last weekend! It was so bizarre working with aran(worsted) weight after all that time with sock yarn, everything happened much faster of course *laughs*
My Zauberball sock is coming along nicely, a little bit more of the foot to do before I start toe decreases:
Not sure why it's upside down, but it's amusing so I shall leave it that way ;) I'm still loving the yarn, even if it is hyper fuzzy. Not sure why there is such a large purple section, but I'm finally on a new colour again, which just makes it so much more fun *grins*
Green top has had many more rows added, and looks very much the same as before *sigh* I couldn't bear to post another picture looking exactly the same as the last, so here's the actual amount of progress I've made...
You'd think it would make more impact on the overall look of the garment, wouldn't you?! Or perhaps I'm just not seeing it. Maybe I'll take a photo every hour or so, so that I can track progress and feel like I'm making some ;)
I've also started knitting the orange yarn I posted about yesterday. Even DK weight feels huge compared to everything else being 4 ply!
This sunny thing will become the first block in a Moderne Blanket. It's a log cabin style, but the blocks are all different sizes. I'm thinking this will be a fairly long term project, being a blanket and all. On the other hand, it is all garter stitch, which is good! I don't usually like garter, but for some reason I'm loving it in this yarn. And the yarn is so soft and squishy, despite it's acrylicness, which is just perfect for a blanket.
It's funny, after the slog of the Clapotis (ooops, wasn't supposed to mention it again today!) I was feeling a little burned out. But give me some orange acrylic and some garter stitch and I'm suddenly all happy again *laughs*
Anyway, that's enough rambling from me today, but head on over to Tami's to see what everyone else has been working on this week :)
