The Last Knits of 2018


Happy 2019, friends! I spent my New Year's Day knitting, drinking coffee, watching the new Marie Kondo series on Netflix, and working on a new puzzle. It felt like the perfect way to ease into the new year, and I can't wait to see what this year has in store for all of us (hopefully mostly good things!).


I have just a couple knits to share from last year before I focus completely on this year's knits! I finished my Finn and Fullerton cardigans back in October (!!) but I only just got the buttons sewn on last weekend. I have never claimed not to be lazy.


Anyway, I love my Finn. The color is just about my favorite shade of orange, and I knit it with a bit of positive ease because I wanted a more casual version. I've worn this around my apartment nonstop since I put the buttons on it, and it's going to work great to wear to the library too.

Yarn: Cascade Yarns Heritage 150 "5716 Autumn Sunset"


Fullerton was a quick knit, and it's a great sweater. It's heavier than the Finn, but because it's mostly cotton and synthetic, it's much cooler to wear. My apartment's been just above freezing for the past week, but once it warms up some, I'll definitely be wearing this a lot more.

Finally, we have my mum's xmas present! This ended up being gifted still on the needles (note to self; don't knit giant wraps for xmas when you're also doing a play!) and finished on Monday. I really love Amy's patterns, and this was a lot of fun to knit, even though I was going a little bit mad trying to get it all done as quickly as possible. I love this bright green, and I still have 72g of this yarn left over, so I can squeeze out a pair of matching socks for myself!
