Friday switch


I resisted sock yarn and cast on for Kate Gilbert's Equestrian Jacket in the new Interweave Knits. I am using O-wool on #4s in the Forest Evergreen color.
Trish asked about O-wool. It is organically produced wool & O-wool is the brand name.


In the meantime, the socks had babies.

Cate, I go away for a few days, and look what you've done!!! You're a knitting Olympian, girl.

I wasn't sure about the Trekking on the ball either, but goodness those are great socks. The colourway is lovely (want some), and I get the obsession totally. I knit one striped sock while away (on an...ahem...totally inferior yarn compared to Trekking) but got caught up in the same madness of having to see the next colour show up. The babies are too cute.

I had a laugh at the idea of a "hair shirt." I love that woman's smile of pride in all her finished projects.

Mmm..I have my eye on that equestrian jacket too. I'll keep an eye on yours (which I figure should be done by tomorrow LOL).

It is a beautiful jacket and it should look great on you. I can't wait to see you in it. I love this issue of IK, so many really nice patterns to choice from
