A week full of fingering-weight projects!

I’m working on something…

amigurumi crochet duck head

… and it’s very tiny!

Isn’t it adorable?!?

I just might have a plan for some super-tiny kits up my sleeve… but I’m not spilling the details, yet!

And some other fingering-weight projects…

I’ve cast on for Mrs Tumnus by Eskimimi:

Mrs Tumnus Shawl by Eskimimi

My Ravelry Project Page

I adore Eskimimi’s blog, and I was really attracted to the unique horseshoe-shape of this shawl.

Unfortunately, the only size 8s I have are wood, and the grippyness is driving me a little batty. I might splurge on a new circular to remedy the situation!

I’m also working on a sock:

Knit Picks Felici socks on 9" circulars

My Ravelry Project Page

The yarn is Knit Picks Felici Sport (which I nabbed on sale because it’s being discontinued), but it seems mighty thin for a sport weight. I’m knitting it up as if it were a fingering, and the gauge seems spot on!

Have I mentioned how much I love my 9″ circular?

I’m right in between books right now, so I have nothing to report on that front.

However, this morning, I did something pretty interesting… I went to a restorative connective tissue class!

I have pretty bad wrists (lots of crocheting and typing!), and get (painful) ganglion cysts, which are a build-up of joint fluid. (sorry if that’s more than you wanted to know)

So, this morning, I thought I’d give a class which uses the Melt Method to workout your connective tissue and fluid.

I liked it! I might even get the at-home kit for working on my wrists… I’ll keep you posted if I experience significant improvement.


That’s what I’ve been up to this week… how about you?

I hope you have an awesome Wednesday, and get some great knitting/crocheting done this week!

  1. I have that exact Felici sport yarn and haven’t made anything with it because I thought the same thing…it seems so much more fingering weight than sport! Loving the design of that shawl! Guess it’s going on my favs for later :-P

    Eeep! Such a tiny head! Must be super cute!!

    And I like your 9″ circular.. where did you find it? I need one too! I’m not really a fan of doing small things in the round on dpns. :-)

      @Max- Thanks! The 9″ circular I bought from my LYS, but they’re also available online. Mine is HiyaHiya, but clover also makes a wooden one. I love them!
