Bind Off, Cast On

 
imageI finished my Hitofude today (pics to come!) and immediately cast on a Hachure.Ā  The red/brown is some Boundless Sock that was a second. It was Fascinator, now it’s a lovely contrast to this orange from the Tripping Yarn Balls Retro Toon yarn club.

This is another sweater with interesting construction; it starts almost like a triangular shawl. I’m kind of excited to see how it goes. I’ll keep you guys posted!

WIP Wednesday – Hitofude On Hold

 

imageI made it through the weekend without doing any knitting. Zero. I did finish spinning and plying 8oz of wool/alpaca/mohair roving from Avalon Springs Farms and I probably shouldn’t have.avalongsprings

I picked up my Hitofude last night and my right hand/forearm felt really tight and unhappy. Strangely, it was my left hand bothering me last week and that seems to be fine since putting those tight socks in time out. So I’m taking a break from knitting AND spinning for the rest of the week. I’m icing, and taking an NSAID, and consoling myself with coloring. I am not one of those people that can veg in front of the tv; my hands are always moving.

Hopefully, a full week of rest will help. I want to get back to this project so I can start a new one. I have so many in my queue!
