Now. Soon. Someday.

What I'm knitting now....


I've cast on the coordinating cowl that will go with my hat for Shalimarch (this one). Another softball game tonight, so I was able to make a bit of progress. I'm knitting with Homage DK and I absolutely love this yarn!

As soon as I saw Anne's new pattern, Polartorte, I was soooo tempted to order the kit. But Stitches West had just happened. Then I saw HizKnits at Stephanie's Book reading and he mentioned the lovely hat. I still resisted. Then Cupcakefaerie posted pictures of her yarn that had arrived to knit the hat, Bare Naked Wools Stone Soup DK. I commented on her Instagram picture that I was soooooo tempted to get the kit, and then Anne commented, "KAL!" or something like that and I set about ordering my yarn. Soon! It should be here soon!!! Nartian and Cheekyattitude are joining in too....anyone else?

I saw the Brush Creek Cowlette yesterday and loved it immediately! Especially the "cowlette" aspect of it since that is how I wear most of my shawls. And I already have some lovely gradient yarns that would work for this! I'm adding it my neverending list of someday knits (ones that I still think of finding the time for like, Herrington and Snawheid.).

So what is on your needles right now?  What are you itching to cast on soon? Dreaming of a someday knit? I'd love to hear!

Oh, and in case you want to cast on your Slip Jig socks before St. Patrick's Day, they are available now on ravelry, as well as Pont Neuf. More info about both to come soon!

Happy Knitting!
