On the Needles Friday January 10, 2014

This week I finished the sleeve on my Acorn Trail, and cast on the right front.  If I can finish the front in a week or less, I should almost be able to finish this sweater in January.  Because of the deep purple in combination with cables and an eye problem I am having, I only work on this in daylight.

So my evening knitting this week has been the Fibonacci socks from Op Art Socks.  After watching me repeatedly untwist my yarns, my son said "there must be a better way".  Well, there is, and I knew it- I needed to knit with one yarn in each hand.  Last time I tried it, on some stranded mittens, one hand was so tight the color disappeared! Anyway, I tried it again and it seems to be going better.  By the time I do all the colorwork in this book I will be more than ready to take on my dream fair isle sweater!

Linking up for On the Needles at Patchwork Times!

I love those socks! I've been eyeing that pattern, too but I think I'd like to do it in a sweater. But not on sock yarn. I'm not that crazy.

I have been practicing the two color, two handed knitting in prep to a Crafty class I signed up for with Ragga Eriksdottir. It's an Icelandic top down colorwork sweater class.
