knitting stuff (fall quarter/winter break)

Wow. Did you know that I started drafting thus post in October of last year? This first paragraph I wrote back then is amazingly still applicable.

Time always seems to pass by so quickly whenever school is in session. I can’t believe that it’s already fifth week and that we’re almost halfway through with this quarter. Classes and MASA have been keeping me busy, so not quite so much crafting time.

(Well it is only fourth week now, but still…)

Anyways, I have a few things to blog about from over winter break! Needed a break from my life right now…

First up, the Garterlac dishcloth and the tribble from a ball of Lily Sugar and Cream in Strawberry.
garterlac dishcloth (1)
I like the dishcloth pattern and feel like it works well with the yarn’s striping, but I think I really need to focus on picking up stitches evenly. The corners are not so nice here. In the future, I’d want to try this as the entrelac scarf or hat pattern.tribble
The tribble was a fun quick knit. I want to try making more with my other scrap yarn. I think closing it would be good practice for doing a beanie!

my kind of town cowl  (2)
Next, the My Kind of Town Cowl. A super easy knit done in a chunky yarn – quick to knit up. I like it! Not sure if it’s too small though. I only used one ball. Also yarn is a bit sheddy, with these navy blue fibers sticking to my shirts. Mm if I did this again, I’d use a different yarn and allow more yardage.

Finally, a progress shot of my CPH, which is FINALLY started after like… three years? Hahaha. I am the master of procrastination. It’s actually back in hibernation again, while I’m at school this (and probably next) quarter.

Also, I bought some pretty gray yarn, intending to make this:
Knit In Chunks
Haha. I wonder if this is going to turn into another CPH, shelved for a few years?

Well, that’s it for knitting for a while. So hmmm, next post is gonna be an announcement. After that, we’ll see. Wish me luck this quarter!
