Progress on Knitting Beanie, WAG Top, and Reading

Hello Friends,

I hope you are all doing well. Later this week, I will be starting a 2.5 month contract. I am excited to start a new job again and it definitely is never boring right now with this change every so often and starting new contracts.

I have been knitting the beanie that I was discussing last week. The pattern I am using is called Barley Light by Tin Can Knits, found on Ravelry. It is a fun knit so far and I am loving the color of the yarn I chose. I am using Patons Kroy Socks yarn in the colorway Flax. I can knit the pattern from memory now and it is a pleasure to knit. It is a two row repeat after the ribbing. The two row repeat is purling the required stitches based on the size of your hat, (mine is an adult large although it does not look too large) and then knit the remaining stitches in the row and then row two is to knit all stitches for one round. This continues until you reach the length that is suggested and then the decreasing begins.



I have also been working on the Wool and the Gang Farrah Billie Jean top and have been making steady progress on it. The yarn dye gets on my fingertips because the yarn is upcycled denim! It comes off when I wash my hands though. So I will definitely be giving it a wash before I wear it.


I have still been reading Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman and really enjoying it so far. It is so sweet, funny, and sad at times. I have been enjoying getting to know what a complex and interesting character Eleanor is, and I am looking forward to reading more.
