WIP - Fairly Monogamous

I've been relatively monogamous this past week, because I absolutely ADORE knitting on my Spring Showers, and can't wait for it to be done so I'll get to wear it :) So sock knitting has been commute knitting only, and every other minute spent knitting has been spent on the cardigan.

It shows too - I've gotten a LOT further and am almost done with the ribbing!
(~250sts on a 80cm needle - it looks like an odd vest at the moment ;) )

I have another 5 rows of ribbing to do plus the bind off, and then it's time to pick up stitches for the sleeves :) It's taking a bit more yarn than I had expected though, so I'm wondering if I'll have enough for the long sleeves I wanted... I'll weigh the yarn once I'm done with the ribbing and decide from there. I might put it aside and see if I can order more, but would worry that the new dye-lot would be close enough. I guess 3/4-sleeves would be okay, but I'll get a lot more use out of long ones. We'll see. With a bit of luck I'll have plenty of yarn, and am worrying for nothing.

My Stitch Surfer socks are going well. They're certainly not as quick a knit as socks usually are, but I'm having fun with them, so that's alright :) I've surfed right and am almost done surfing left.

I also cast on for the Hundred Acre Wood socks once again with thinner yarn, so I could knit the size medium. Haven't even finished the first repeat yet, and am still not quite sure what I think of the yarn and the pattern together, but I'll give it a shot for awhile longer. I don't think the yarn is too busy for the pattern, but we'll see.


  1. Well now I really think I'm going to have to queue up Stitch Surfer! So interesting!

    1. You should! I'd love to see what you make of them :)
