Done Knitting

So, I finished the cap that I was working on earlier evening. I'm not sure that I blogged about this, but I've been itching to knit hats for a while now (the old hats were 2+ years old, and hats wear out and get icky and lost faster than say, sweaters).

It's nice. black, understated. It'll get a lot of wear.

I had been putting the Morocco sweater on hold until after the finals push was over, but with the hat over, I'm without knitting projects. November has been the month of finishing things: the socks, the hat, the two plain sweaters from this summer.

The end result of this, is that I don't really have anything to knit. There is of course the stranded sock that I was working on in July that is in desperate need of some ripping back, and it's a sock, and I'm very much not in a sock mood.

So I think I'm going back to knitting on the sweater. It's weird to not have projects underway. It's been so long since I've cast anything on, for real. Weird.


Oh, Right! Joe, you'll be happy about this. I have the grey sweater to knit. I think I'm going to go pull that out of the pile and take it with me to class today. It's good and mindless.

Actually, one thing I fear with the grey sweater is that if I work too much more on it, I'll be in danger of being back in sleeve hell, and those sleeves, with their plain stocking stitch might just send me to the loony bin. I'm thinking of running a cable or three down the top of the sleeve and making a shoulder strap out of it. Having said that, I haven't actually knit a stitch on that since say, April, and I haven't even looked at it since early June, so I'll tell you later when I have have more... empirical data.

Onward and Upward!
