Looks Like October Will Be Frosty
I'm zipping right along on the sleeves for October Frost! I love working cables, but you can't (or at least I can't) go on autopilot with cables. Maybe if they were all the same cable and they all crossed every 4th row and they all crossed the same direction or something, I could knit them without thinking, but these cables are too complex for me to do without thinking about them. I actually don't think I'll be changing anything about this pattern except what I've already done at the sleeve cuffs (which is so small a change it really doesn't count). This will make two sweaters in a row that I haven't changed things on, because I also did Oblique as the directions were written. I'm hoping to start seaming Oblique today and then I plan to try it on and see where I'll put button holes and how many I actually want on it. It will nice to get Oblique all finished up and put away for Fall - it looks like I'll have a toasty fall!
I also pulled out the Fire Socks for the second Elements Sock pattern I was working on before I got the call for entries for the sock book. I have finished knitting the first design for the pattern and was halfway down the leg of the second design. The problem is, I'm not really happy with the second design for this pattern so I'm planning on frogging what I have so far and redesigning and starting over. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble deciding what to do for this sock. Is there such a thing as Sock Block?
