Remember when I told you about some charity knitting that I was planning on doing. I'm happy to say they are done. Both in the time frame I gave myself. First the hat that Elianastar put a call out for the sailors of U.S.S. Decatur
. Wish I had time to knit more but one is better than none right? Well it is one its way.
Then Tara put a call out for scarves for this charity
. Now since this was a pretty quick knit and her deadline isn't until Dec.1 I am going to wait to send it in to see if maybe I can knit another one. Here is the Montana Scarf.
You would think with all the projects I that I recently cast on that I would stop for a bit. Nope I have actually cast not one, not two but three more. Yes three more projects. Crazy I know. Is it time to change my name to Cast4many yet?
Well I couldn't resist this yarn was begging to be knit.
The pattern is Tease from Knit & Wrap
in a lovely bulky homespun yarn I bought at the fiber festival ( I've only been to one). the pattern calls for a US19. I'm using a US17 (12.00mm) Zephyr options needle.
Knitting cables twist on this size needle was a challenge for me but I like the look.
Here's what I have so far.
This week is Halloween and we have been invited to a Halloween party. Well I though it would be fun to see what Halloween patterns there where on Ravelry. After searching and sharing some pics with DH. I came up with these two.Hallowig
from Knitty. Knit in Cascade 220 I had in my stash on size US 8 (5.00mm) KP nickle options needles. I cast on for this last night while listening to The Knit Wits podcast. I miss my frequent KP podcast. I know they take time and love it when a new episode comes out and even enjoy re-listening to the older ones but I need something while I wait. So I have been trying to listen to different ones until the next KP one comes out. If you would like to recommend a podcast for me to check out that would be great.
Back to Hallowig. While I was knitting and listening to The Knit Wits last night I lost track of the time and even got to the bangs section of the pattern. After trying it on this morning I realize that length was a bit too long and would drive me nuts when wearing it so I had to rip back to shorten it.
So what was my other Halloween cast on project?
Well naughty of me I know but I am going to wait a little bit before sharing that one. Hehe.. In fact I better get back to knitting or neither of them will get done on time but I will show you a picture of what I cast on this morning and how far I am. Any ideas of what it is? Other than a bad picture of black knitting in bad lighting. LOL!
It is going to be hard enough to concentrate on knitting this afternoon since its SAL ( Spin a long) PARTY TIME!!!
