The Weekend Can Really Help Your Knitting

If you do almost nothing but knit, that is. Of course, you can also end up with a sore thumb, but that’s of no importance compared to the progress you’ve made 🙂

Anyways, here’s the progress I made over the weekend.

On the Woolen Twinset Cardigan, I finished the second ball of 4-Ply Soft and now 6″ of the body is done.

The first of the Oak Ribbed Socks is done and the cuff is finished on the second sock.

The Katharine Vest was swatched for.

I’m itching to start this project right away so I can wear it on a trip we’re planning in a few weeks, but I’ve decided to hold off on it until I’ve finished the Stained Glass Scarf.

I finished the third ball of Aurora 8 and started the fourth and last one this morning. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel with this one – it was feeling like it would never end.

I’ve got the Babette Blanket in progress too, but it’s been moved to the back burner. I’m hoping that’ll change soon, though. After all, sewing the squares together is one of the best parts, right?

Lastly, The Mitered Square Blanket is blocking and is almost dry. I’m hoping to do a photo shoot this week.

    So many beautiful things! I can’t pick a favorite but seeing your progress on the cardigan makes me want to start one too. Weekends are great for knitting except other things keep getting in my way – like laundry and errands and sleeping. Need to re-think this….!

    The twinset cardi is coming along beautifully. Love all those twists and turns.

    I’m also starting the Katharine Vest. I love the colour you chose. I’m knitting mine in Cotton Fine in the colour Rue. What needle size did you swatch with and did you achieve gauge? I’m curious to compare my results with another knitter. 🙂
