In this episode: The Great Airing of the Stash 2023; hibernating projects emerge, blinking, into the light; revisiting Paint Pan; Against all Odds’ and the Red Edge, plus a veritable torrent of new knitting projects.
The Troublesome Socks are done. They are… okay. They’re flat. And they’re comfortable. I guess I like them, and am happy they’re off the needles because I am FREE!
Free to reunite with a few old friends! The Red Edge gets a new button band, and top-down contiguous sleeve cap.
I made a little progress on Against All Odds, which was closer to being done than I remember it being. Love that. The butterflies from Paint Pan will be knit into stripes, using the 24 Days Sock Pattern.
Then, after taking care to continue the work on my old projects, I went a little nutzy starting new projects.
Schnenke (top left) is a really fun knit with a clever and interesting shape; Gilet Parodia (top center and right) is destined to become my new favourite Grandpa sweater. And my first ever Argyle socks, from Anne Berk’s pattern Diamonds Are Forever knit to the length of August Argyles.
I’m home, Knitsib. I’m home!
