My Dark Night Rose Sweater knitting is coming along slowly. As I wrote in my post on February 3, 2018, I had hoped to knit 7 hexagons a month. Well, I certainly did not reach that goal in February. I only knit 3 hexagon and a half hexagon. So now I have 5 full and 1 half hexagon. They do however, make up the beginning of the right front of the sweater and the right armhole.
Here’s a photo of the progress that I made and while the ends still need to be woven in and they need to be blocked, I think this gives you an idea.
I am really enjoying this knitting. The yarn is lovely, the color vibrant, and using the Kollage square needles makes the knitting comfortable.
Knitting a Shawl
I did work on several other projects in February including this shawl with yarn from Dragonfly Fibers that I purchased at the 2017 Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.
This is all garter stitch in various shades of brown. It is my evening knitting and very relaxing to knit. I did purchase the 47 inch long circular needles to knit this project. As I wrote in my post about knitting needle length, the correct length makes all the difference in the comfort of knitting.
Do you have a project of the year? The one knitting project that will require you to knit with a lot of effort but that you’re determined to finish.
