This week on the needles, August 22nd

I have three projects to finish over the next couple of weeks.  First is the green socks that I have mentioned in previous posts.  I finished the first sock on the 16th, and cast on for the second on the 18th, and last night knit the heel (it's toe-up).  So I am progressing nicely and will hopefully have it done by next week.  Will take a photo or two once they are finished.

Second and third are two coming out of hibernation.  A scarf, knit with a DK-weight, muted rainbow variegated organic merino from The Sanguine Gryphon, in the criss-cross lace pattern called "La Novia", by Anne Hanson.  I think I've mentioned this one before.  And now I have a photo to show for it!  I'm about 50% or so done.  I'm going to continue the 6-row repeat until I use up the 285 yards or so of yarn.  This picture below show the zig-zag pattern fairly well:

The other hibernation project that is going to be finished is a sweater, knit out of my own hand-dyed Pales Twisty DK merino wool, in the powder-blue colourway "Azer-Ava".  The pattern is called "Big Cables and Baby Cables too".  It's a garter stitch-yoke, with some cables, knit in the round, then it moves to Stockinette.  I am on the stockinette body, then it'll be time for the sleeves, that do have a lot of cable details to pay attention too.  I hope this will be done by mid-to-late September. This photo is from a while back, before I had divided for the sleeves and body.

And that's what I'm currently knitting.  Until next week....
