I finished up the October Hat (Ravelry link) this week, which also meant I used up all of the Carodan Farms worsted weight in this color from stash! I think this rustic neutral works great with the cables. I did work less rounds of the ribbing than the pattern calls for as I was light on yarn, and I’m glad I did since I only had about 5 yards left when I finished my version.
I also have been working on my Sonoran shawl (Ravelry link) and have worked up to section 8. The dark green yarn is the one from my YOP random selection, and I added in the other 3 from stash. This is a simple, pretty mindless knit with a lot of garter stitch so it’s perfect for low-key relaxed knitting in the evenings.
Finally this week, I finished cutting out and temporarily fusing the next wool applique I want to work on. This is a sweet little holiday-themed mug rug, smaller than the piece I finished up earlier this year. I wanted to get it this far along to take as a travel project this upcoming week.
That’s all for me this week YOP’ers. If you’re here in the States, have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and everyone else have a good week!
