Queue Check: February 2017

The few weeks of February just flew by, didn't they?  My knitting queue has only grown to be honest, with only one project being finished from last month.  The finished project was my Hygge Hat & Mitts (and I'm really proud of how the pattern turned out) which can now be purchased on Ravelry!  Here's what was happening on my needles in February:

1. River Light Tee swatch in Quince & Co. Tern: this was an interesting swatch; normally I don't knit swatches this large but the Irish moss stitch really pulls on the bias while you're knitting and Marie suggested a large swatch to see how the stitch blocked out.  I'm really glad I did - the difference between the blocked vs. unblocked swatch was crazy!  I'm planning to down a needle size for the sweater but other than that I'm loving the way it's looking after a good soak.

2. New design!  I'm super excited about this guy; I'm in love with the texture and reversible stitch pattern I've got going on.  It's knit in Brooklyn Tweed Quarry and I'm debating working up a worsted weight swatch to see what that looks like as well.  More details to come!!

3. Find Your Fade shawl: Cannot. stop. knitting. this.  I thought a fingering weight shawl would be so fiddly and slow but seriously, I can't put this down!  There's just enough variety with the alternating sections and I'm so excited to see how the next color looks that I just want to keep going!

What's on your needles this month? I'd love to hear!
