Working on…

toast

I’ve been chugging away on a Toast wrap since the beginning of December. It’s part of my commitment to use what I have, digging deep into the stash for some balls of Knitpicks Stroll — unoriginally, in the exact colors used in the pattern photos (but why mess with a good thing?).  Here’s hoping I can finish this one up this weekend. It’s foggy and cool in Boston, the kind of hazy weather that encourages stretches of time spent with knitting in lap, a cup of tea by your side.

What are you working on?

      Also love Harpa, and am considering making it one of my next projects because I can’t shake the fingering-weight-colorwork-in-the-round neck warmer trend. But I’m with you – they take.so.long. I need a bulky project to get me going and feel like I can actually finish something!
