That colorful little number above is Painted and was actually cast on in June, but got tossed aside. It's a fun knit and I'll probably end up working on it here and there all through winter, since I have some other projects that I'd like to get finished first.
I Instagrammed the picture above with the caption "I like Big Balls and I can not lie..." And just to show you how big those balls of Brown Sheep Burly Spun really are, that's a yarn cake of Madelinetosh worsted sitting on top. I bought the Burly Spun to make these leg warmers a few years ago. I think it's time to cast on....
As for that yarn cake of Madelinetosh, I've cast on a Christmas gift for someone special... but that's all you're getting on that one.
I saved my current can.not.wait.to.wind.and.cast.on. for last. The yarn is last month's Yarn Box shipment - 3 skeins of Erin from Imperial Yarn, a super squishy, 100% wool that looks and smells amazing! Yarn Box included a pattern for a cowl & hat set, but I wasn't really loving it, so I started searching for what to make. I knew I wanted to use at least 2 of the colors, but preferred to find something using all 3. I found a scarf pattern that I was all set to make... until Challah popped up in my Facebook news feed and I knew it was the right pattern for this yarn! I have to get this one started really soon... and yes, it's for me!
I could go on and on with other projects on the needles, but we'd be here all day... and well, I want to go knit! Have a great weekend!
