this week on my needles

Lately I have been working on multiple projects at once, which is not my norm. I am participating in EweEwe's Easy As ABC Raglan Baby Sweater Knit Along (KAL). It's going great. I seriously cannot believe how easy this sweater is. I have always felt intimidated to start a sweater, but this has helped break it down into easy steps. I'm not quite finished, but so far I love it. 

I'm also working on a double knit hat, which is a new technique for me. I learned how to double knit by watching a tutorial, Double Knitting for Beginners at New Stitch A Day. It's not a complicated technique, but it's a slow technique. It's hard to be slow. I'm used to whipping up a hat in a night or two, but this is taking me forever. However, it's so thick and has a nice finished look. 

This Saturday I'm taking a brioche knitting class at Hill Vintage. I'm excited to learn this technique. I love the look of brioche knitting. I hope it works up fast, and I can use it for a cowl. I would love to get a cozy cowl added to the shop next fall/winter. 

I'm teaching Granny Squares at Hill Vintage on March 4th. I'm looking forward to it, and if you're looking to learn a new crochet technique, it's going to be a great class.
