It has been far too long since I last did a “What’s on my Needles Wednesday” post, so I figured now is as good of time as any to bring it back.
This week I have a size 10 knit for kids sweater going, an eight strand braided cable scarf and a winter hat.
For the sweater I am knitting up I am using all red heart yarn in light sage, buff and a cranberry color.
I had a skein of lion brand fishermen’s wool in oatmeal that I would start something then decide to do something else, I finally decided to use it for an eight strand braided cable scarf.
I am making a hat out of lion brand alpine wool in Chili. I wanted to try this yarn so I am using what I bought for a warm winter hat. Trying to cast on the hat and knit off the first row was a pain in the butt. Beings that it is more of a roving, it is loosely spun and the strand kept pulling apart half way across the knit off row. Once I finally got the first row knit off it has become easier to work with. Last night I went and picked up a second skein so I could finish my hat.
