I cast on my November Sockdown socks today. The pattern is Chrissy Gardner's Tilting Cable Socks from the Winter 2007 Interweave Knits. I'm using some Plymouth Happy Feet in a tealy green colorway. I can already tell these are going to take a little while, because of the cables. I tend to grasp my work a little tighter when I'm doing cables, so my hands actually get tired.
I had been trying to come up with a sweater to use with my Fibre Company Organik yarn that I picked up at the former owner's tent sale. I was thinking about making the Eastlake Sweater from Norah Gaughan Vol. 3, but I kept putting that off, and finally decided I just wasn't feeling that sweater in that particular yarn. Trouble is, I can't seem to find another sweater that I like that I actually have enough yarn to make. So I've put that back in my stash, and if I decide to make a sweater anytime soon, I'll likely be buying more yarn to that.
I received the yarn for my father and C's Christmas presents yesterday, so one pair of those will probably be on the needles relatively soon. Between the scarf, Tilting Cables socks, and those, I have my November knitting work cut out for me.
