Designer: Kirsten Kapur
Yarn: Madelintosh Tosh Sock (100% merino)Added Notes: These socks were part of a mystery knit along where participants received different parts of the pattern weekly for a month. I signed up for this KAL, not knowing what the sock pattern was going to look like. I ended up spending many precious knitting hours on a pair of socks that I wasn't really enjoying knitting. I am not a big fan of knitting cables, especially with fingering weight yarn. Don't get me wrong, they are beautiful and fit me well, but I learned through this process that I enjoy knitting a simpler (and quicker) pair of socks, and that I don't really enjoy a mystery KAL. I need to know what I am knitting. How do you feel about complicated socks and MKALs?
No sooner had I decided to stay away from MKALs then the amazing designer Joji Locatelli came out with her Mystery Wrap KAL. Joji is one of my favourite designers so joining is very tempting. However, the wrap requires five skeins of fingering weight yarn, which means it is a huge project. Reluctantly, I have decided not to participate as I want to stay focused on knitting sweaters. I am currently participating in the very popular Tops, Tanks and Tees Knitalong hosted by Very Shannon which runs from April 10 to May 8. From Hannah Fettig's new book Texture I am knitting the Eventide Cardi. This cardigan is knit in pieces, and I think seaming is going to be easy, as the rows of seed stitch on the separate pieces will line up perfectly.

I am really trying to stay focused on my sweater knitting goal.
However, I find it very challenging given the number of new patterns that keep cropping up on Ravelry each week. So many temptations! Well I better get back to my Eventide Cardi...I only have about a week left.
