Currently on the Needles


My sock blanket is growing and growing!  But slowly....I love knitting it now that there is a chill in the air, a tiny chill but still a chill to love.  I have so much leftover sock yarn that I haven't reached the bottom of the bag.

I'm continuing my hitofude cardigan that I posted about yesterday and my imagine when shawl. I rotate between all three projects as my mood changes.  I am having an urge to cast on the fourth project just to have one more option, but what?

For my reading this week, I started a new novel called Blackberry Winter by Sarah Jio.  This novel is captivating and she shifts from present day to the past during WW II.  Oh how I love the past!  In the evening I relax and do a mini time travel.

What are you knitting and reading this week?

  1. Love your projects Karen! It will be so nice to knit this blanket in the winter, having it rest on your lap, keeping your warm and your fingers busy. I just started a cowl, that I hope will be a Christmas present for a friend. I kind of made the pattern up and I'm not sure yet if it will work or not. Been too busy to really focus on it...

  8. The blanket is such a great idea! Are you following a pattern, or just knitting as you go? I should really do something like this, I have so much leftover yarn from projects...and it would be perfect for the frigid winter I am totally expecting this year!

  26. Your projects are looking great! Sounds like you are enjoying them even though you've got your eye on yet another one. There's nothing quite as fun as starting a new project, is there?

  30. I love your sock blanket as well! It is so cool.
    I'm finishing the lace fingerless today. I sewed buttons on a the baby cardigan last night.
    I'm reading the book on prayer….so slowly.. I have to digest it a bit at a time.
    I'm embracing being off more than expected due to a low census

  32. thanks for book reco I've added it to goodreads list to read next winter, Now I do like your idea of having 4 items on the go at once - very much!

  33. I'm most certainly a one project on the needles kind of girl although there are plenty floating around my head. I'm currently knitting the Alaria Shawl. We had a rocky start but are now on very friendly terms. It's a great pattern but I need to concentrate. I am reading the third novel fo Elizabeth Jane Howard's sequel which takes place during WWII in England. It's set on my home ground so it's a great read.
