What I'm Working On

Jim mentioned to me yesterday that I haven't updated my blog for three weeks.  I checked.  It hasn't been that long but it's been over a week so I thought I'd share what I've been working on lately.

We started a KAL (knit-a-long) at the shop at the end of May.  We are knitting Eadon by Susanna IC. I am using Cascade 220. I am now referring to this project as death by ribbing.  I have finished the back which is 3 x 2 rib and my fronts are almost done.  They at least have some cabling.  
 I am also working on Fluency Gloves by Sivia Harding.  I plan on wearing these when walking Jake this winter.  The yarn I am using is Soprano by Abstract Fiber in Black Opal which is 50% merino/50% silk.  I bought this yarn when I was at Madrona in 2011 and it is oh so yummy!!

 You prestring 44 beads for these and I like how the beads sit between the purl stitches.
This is on the inside and what happens when you're not paying attention and skip a double point needle while knitting. I debated but  it's been fixed.
My other project which is not knitting related is a soccer t-shirt quilt for Hagen.  When I was in Texas last month I picked up a few more shirts and shorts from him to fill in the blanks.

Now the goal is to finish something.


  1. Lovely beads! And Hagen's quilt looks great!

  2. Call me crazy but I ADORE knitting miles and miles of ribbing! Please do not tempt me with that KAL pattern...

    1. Crazy you are then. I am looking forward to the finished sweater.

  3. Great projects all...

    I have a goal of finishing something...anything too. :/
