Hi everyone. This week I cast on the wrist warmers and started to knit them. I love the simplicity of the DROPS Design Extra 0-903 neck warmer and wrist warmer pattern. The only challenging part are the short rows on the neck warmer. I keep forgetting to wrap them as I do them!
As for the Fleece Artist Fundy National Park Chinook yarn? Let me just say, it is gorgeous to knit with! Doesn’t catch on the needles. Smooth and soft. Nice and thick for warmth. Also discontinued at this point in time…unfortunately. However, Fleece Artist is renowned for its excellent yarns. Check them out at FleeceArtist.com
I am knitting these using the needles recommended – 4.5 mm 16″ circulars for the neck warmer, 4.5 mm double pointed needles for the wrist warmers. The hat, which was knit from the free Ravelry pattern, His and Hers Beanie, by Krityum, used 4.0 mm 16″ circulars on the ribbing, and 4.5 mm 16″ circular on the rest of the hat.
My current reading is “Conran on Color” by Terrance Conran. I’ve had this book out of the library before. It’s an easy read for me. I love the color inspiration it provides.
This week was busy with medical appointments and gym. Things appear to be going okay. Still have a ways to go to stabilize things here, but it’s happening. Progress is slow, but noticeable.
I hope everyone had a good week and will have a great weekend! Take care and talk to you next week. Thanks for reading.
