Small November projects
It's starting to feel like I'm making progress on this year's Fall socks. For some reason I always find that if I actually spend a few minutes here and there actually knitting the socks, they get finished much more quickly than if they sit there in the project bag, ignored. I love the pink and decided to do the toe in the opposite colour, just to tie the two together. The blue one will have a pink toe. Then they will definitely be a pair and not two lost socks finding their way together.
Projects on the go - the loom is about to be dressed with a couple of projects, blankets and scarves I think...
I'm also about to start on a new coat for wearing at the bake oven. The costume department calls it a Sacque coat, but online info suggests that Paletot might be another name for it. Regardless of the name, I have a nice bit of wool, which is really a tad too lightweight for a coat, but it's in the stash so I don't have to purchase new yardage for the project. It will make a nice coat if I line it properly. It will be perfect for wearing at the bake oven in December. Last winter I found wearing a cape just too awkward to be actually working in. Sleeves will make a huge difference in being able to work and keep warm!
