Lightning round today. If you haven’t been paying attention, please remember that winter begins next week. All this balmy weather is just a tease. Batten the hatches! Dig up the turnips! Cover thyself! When you make all these covers for your extremities, you will have a good defense for the next three months.
For the Head
Holt by Alicia Plummer. PUFF STITCH, OK? How often do we get to try out a puff stitch?
For the Wristular Area
For the Foots
Sidekick Boot Socks by Kate Atherley. A new issue of Knitty is always a good tool for procrastination, and these socks instantly caught my attention. Functionality rules here: a single strand of yarn for the foot, so as to avoid the foot-cramming thing that happens when your socks are too thick. But then: a double strand for the heel and leg. These are socks designed to get you through a Toronto winter. I think exuberant colors are in order here.
Speaking of which . . .
One More for the Head
Wishing all a happy weekend. I’m desperately underknitted this week, feel a binge coming on.
PS Congratulations to Susan R. in Columbus, Ohio, winner of the noodly Udon Blanket kit from We Are Knitters. Wish we had a thousand to share with everybody.
