My original plan for my Ravelympic yarn was to knit socks, but due to various factors (yarn is too thick, not enough time, and I don’t want to shove all that soft and smooshy goodness into my shoes), I’ve decided to switch to… gloves.
All of a sudden I have the strangest urge to knit huge amounts of winter accessories, like neckwarmers and gloves and mittens and scarves and maybe some hats. I don’t know why; although it’s been cooler than usual here it still hits 30C/85F most days. Still, my birthday’s only a few weeks off, which means fall (glorious fall) is also on the way.
I did have to frog my Smooshy sock.
The pattern, while gorgeous, had some weird fiddly bits that I think could’ve stood to be re-worked/better written. I might return to them eventually, but not with this yarn—the fantastic erqsome has already promised me a pattern to use for the Smooshy.
