The Hill Country periwinkle socks are currently in time out. I love the yarn but not the pattern so much and I'm thinking about frogging and trying another pattern. I'm also concerned about the durability of this very loosely spun yarn. Don't want to invest a lot of time if the socks are going to felt. The November installment of the yarn club should arrive this coming week.
The only other finished object this month was a Coral Bliss Scarf knit on a weekend trip. This is the third one of these I've made. A very quick easy knit with one of the softest yarns in the world - Debbie Bliss SuperChunky Cashmerino. The previous two went to charity but I'm keeping this one.
I did, as planned, swatch for Notre Dame de Grace but did not get gauge with the suggested size 7 needles so last night swatched again with 8's. Need to block and remeasure. This looks to be a very enjoyable knit if I can just figure out the proper needle size.
Although I think I might be tempting fate I'm making a list for November. After all, I will have that long Thanksgiving weekend and I'm not venturing out shopping on Friday this year. So, here's the list:1.Finish Fetching fingerless gloves ( currently 30% complete)
2. Finish I Love Gansey socks (Currently 10-15 % complete. I'm knitting these in parallel and very carefully following a chart. Most complicated socks I've attempted but so far so good.)
3. Knit 1 charity hat - pattern to be determined.
