It’s the start of Plucktober! What’s that, you ask, scratching your head? Obviously you’re not one of the 10,200+ Plucky Knitter Group Members. Because that is all we’re talking about.
Plucktober is kind of a knitting marathon. Honestly, some knitters stayed up all night to get a head start. Others, like me, crashed at the usual bedtime with dreams of socks, mittens, shawls, hats and sweaters taunting us in our dreams.
I have plans. I’m going to do a hat, mittens and scarf for the wee offspring. Wee offspring is 35, but he still gets cold in the winter. And I’m going to cast on a lovely sweater in gray – my most favorite bright cheery color – for me.
And then there’s the Boots & Faded Jeans. The gray is called Mighty Mac for the Mackinaw Bridge which links the mainland to Mackinaw Island. Ah Mackinaw Island ………. sumptuous place. And then I have Run Forrest coming on Bello ……… kind of a browny bronzy color for another sweater (there’s a sweater marathon in my future).
With all of these lovelies, I also have Old Money on Bello. Now I hadn’t bought any Bello until the last Instant Gratification Update but lord. It oughta be banned. I touched that single, lonely little skein and passed out. Immediately I put up an In Search Of for more of this yarn. I need this yarn.
In between all of this, I’m working on my quilt. I have put down a bit to see what I think and today I’m going to rearrange the colors. I have a plan in zee haid and I veel make it work.
A whole month of power knitting ……….. bring it on.
