The next up on my list is Gray Rose, a beautiful wooly hat by Thea Colman of BabyCocktails. Her patterns are always so lovely and well written. This one caught my eye as soon as it was published last September. After looking around in my stash I think I found the perfect yarn to knit it with, West Yorkshire Spinners Bluefaced Leicester yarn that I bought on my trip to Scotland in 2014. I am excited to knit a small project with this yarn as I have enough skeins to knit a sweater. It will give me a chance to see how it knits up and blocks. I have also wanted to knit with Bluefaced Leicester for some time as I have read a lot of good things about it. After knitting with Cormo last year I am interested in trying a variety of yarns that are not superwash. Yarn that still smells sheepy, if you know what I mean. There's nothing like knitting with some cozy yarn during the cold winter months.

And lastly, I have also promised myself to redo the sleeves on my son's Slade by Michele Wang. I seamed the sleeves into the body of the sweater as instructed, but try as I might I just couldn't get them to fit properly. They were just too big in the upper arm for some reason. After several attempts to fix them, I put the sweater away while I worked on my Christmas knitting. This is definitely not my idea of a good time, but I want to get it done so he can wear the sweater this winter.
So there you have it, my list of knitting for the next month. What's on your needles?
