As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been casting-on like crazy (for me, at least – I tend to be fairly monogamous in my knitting projects…I just don’t know how to make progress on projects if I’m working on a bunch of them at once). The other new project since defending my dissertation:
Another set of Mitered Crosses. This time, in Brown Sheep Naturespun Sport, from a ZigZag Mitten Kit that’s been sitting around in my stash, stubbornly not turning into mittens. See, I’ve got this long, skinny window in my office door at work, and I’ve been wanting to make something to cover it, and a chain of rainbow-colored mitered crosses seemed like a good idea. Except maybe crazy because seriously, when am I going to have time to knit them? But whatever – they can be my “at the office” project that I knit a few rows on here and there, and if I don’t finish it until the end of the semester, whatever!
I love the colors of Naturespun Sport (I mean, of course I do, or I wouldn’t have bought the mitten kit to begin with). I’m using a random neutral color dk/sportweight yarn from my stash for the edgings. We’ll see how this all turns out. I do love knitting these squares ever so much.
