1. Sunrise Circle – I haven’t done anything with this yet. Once we move to the new rental house I’ll have a whole desk dedicated to knitting that I can spread it out on and assess what needs to be done.
2. Newfoundland Mitts – This is my second pair due to the mistake I made in the first pair. One mitten is done except for the thumb. Second mitten hasn’t even been started.
3. Seaman’s Cap – This basic hat with a nice deep brim should be suitable for Richard. If not, it will fit me. I’m knitting it with Valley Yarns Northampton and finding that I really like the sturdiness of the yarn. I expect to finish this up tonight.
I haven’t forgotten about Norah Gaughan either! Mom’s still sending me Knitting Nature and in the meantime I’ve been drooling over her patterns from Berroco. You can see Volume 1 and Volume 2 previews on Berroco’s website. I’m going to try to continue working with what I already own first (not to mention I don’t think I have yarn on hand for any of the patterns bigger than a hat), but the temptation is strong….
