October tumbled in and my routine changed a bit.1 My knitting slowed down and I found myself putting down the needles and heading outside to take extra long walks with my dog. I welcomed the slowing pace of my knitting and tried to appreciate the small progress I made on Ene’s scarf. I’m really happy with the way the yarn is knitting up and stop frequently to look at the stitches.
Sunday morning I made coffee, the cold tiles beneath my bare feet. I couldn’t stop thinking, I really should be wearing a pair of handknit socks! Badcaul socks to be specific. Sometimes you see someone knitting a pattern and you think it is quite lovely and want to knit it too. The pattern can be purchased individually or as a set with Nautilus and Giotto. Lots of new things in this pair for me…knitting socks with one circular, Turkish cast on, cabling without a cable needle and knitting them toe up. Actually, I tried toe up once and struggled with it, so I’m giving it another go using this koigu solid from my stash. An obvious nod to the season but I couldn’t resist.
ETA 1 I knit with some spiders last week!
