NEW PROJECTS

I love casting on new projects, and that's what I got to do this morning. While watching this ....


... tug pulling some kind of structure AND a barge through Enterprise Channel, this morning, in a 30-knot wind ...

... I cast on for these argyle socks for River, who loves black and red ...


And, before I left home, I'd already started on this ...



... new blue something, but I don't know what yet. I can tell you that the wool is Ella Rae in a variegated blue-green colorway that's stunning, and that's a double moss stitch.


It might end up being a 'cheater' moebius ... the kind you make by knitting a rectangle, turning one end a half-turn, and sewing up the seam. Quick, easy and lovely!

Having made two "real" moebi (moebiuses?) I can say for sure that the cheater ones are more fun :)

Lovely Ella Rae yarn... didn't I just see that on the shelf of our new favourite store? :)
Looks like it will turn out to be a wonderful piece.
