I have been thinking lately about my choices in knitting and crocheting. While I still identify as a knitter primarily, it seems that for the last several months, it has been the hooks that have had the siren call. Perhaps a part of this is that I have had two large projects to knit, and crocheting smaller things has been a break from those two.
That being said…
I have finished one of the two projects! The Architexture Scarf by Jennifer Weissmann was a lot of fun to knit, even though I don’t normally knit scarves. All I have left is blocking.
The end is also in sight for my second knitting project. This is a shawl following a simple lace pattern I found on Pinterest. (see the chart here)
But, this week I have also been working on a blanket that a friend requested. This was using yarn that her daughter had bought before she passed away, so it’s super special to her. I am going to add to the collection a little bit, though. I am planning to add a pocket so the blanket can fold into a pillow, and this pillow will be designed to look like her dog. However, I still need to buy the yarn for that. The body of the blanket follows the Augustine Chunky Throw Blanket pattern by Michele Costa, and I will be designing the pillow pocket myself (once I have the yarn).
So what are you working on this week? What type of craft is calling your name?
