I have two projects on the needles at the moment. One is a project I started a year ago, and am now determined to have finished within a week or so. The other is new.
The Eyelet Rib Vest has been hibernating since last winter, when I put it aside for more pressing projects. But now that I spend part of my days in an office, a vest would be very useful. So, I am working feverishly on this one. In the past three days or so I have completed the back (it was 80% finished) and am past the half way mark on the front. I am knitting this in one piece although the project originally had it as a button-up. I saw some done as one piece, and decided that would suit me better.
The yarn is Emu Superwash Double Knit, which I picked up a few years ago at Fun Knits at one of her yearly sales for, I think, about a $1.50 a ball. It knits up very nicely, and I am looking forward to wearing this vest soon.
The second project is a pair of socks. The pattern is Jules, a free pattern off Ravelry. The yarn is Tofutsies, the yarn with wool, soysilk, cotton and chitin in it. This is the first time I’ve knit with it. So far it is nice, although you do have to watch it a bit as it is splitty. I like the feel of it. The socks are for me.
So January is off to a productive start!
