Past and Future Projects



 Good morning! Now that the hoopla is over, I am embracing my slow days and reacquainting myself with forgotten knitting projects.  Some on the needles and some in my imagination.  The imagination ones can be the best.  I LOVE the striping of my cowl.  However that stockinette I craved during the weeks leading up to the wedding is super boring now.  


I thought you'd like to see the never ending sock blanket, I love it and so does everyone else.  I haven't worked on it these hot summer days but every once in  awhile I do an hour's worth of knitting before the heat of the wool over takes me.  I am dreaming of cool autumn days of snuggling under this mammoth and knitting away.  Those days are coming!


Now for my imagination knitting.  I have this last skein of Regia yarn that has been discontinued and is more than 10 years old.  I see a lovely pair of socks for me.  I have three other pairs in this workhorse yarn and in their 10 year use they are still going strong.  I have never put a hole in a pair of hand made socks though.  I must walk gingerly :)


Dear sweet Stella, my Maggie Rabbit that my sister made for me, has been patiently awaiting a sweater.  I must start one before the cold weather starts.  I dug through my scraps and odds and ends and found this sock yarn left over from my first hitofude cardigan.  We can be matchy matchy!

Of course I'd like to start some shawl knitting but for now I have plenty to keep me happy.  Tomorrow I'll share with you the featherweight cardigan.

  2. I have some socks knit from that same type of yarn, and they have held up!
    That sock-yarn blanket is really something. It is going to be fabulous to snuggle in when the temps drop.
    Where do you find a pattern for a sweater for a stuffed bunny??

  3. I'm a big fan of stripes, and I love the colours of the ones in your cowl. And your sock blanket is incredible! I agree about the projects in our imaginations being some of the best. In my case, they are the only ones without any mistakes as well. :-)

  10. These all look lovely. I'd love to knit a cardigan for a maggie rabbit but have yet to make a rabbit. I have recently ordered one of Alicia's embroidered sampler patterns though and can't wait to start that. Can't wait to see the featherweight cardigan.
    Happy knitting.

  12. I just love the shading on your cowl so keep going at that stockinette! :D I still haven't managed to make a pair of socks in my life but have some planned for my husband for his birthday - very excited to see if his last so well as yours as he's always putting holes in his shop bought ones!

    I can imagine little Stella in a poncho in that pretty green shade too...

  13. Looks like you have some great things lined up! It's always a bummer when a good sock yarn gets discontinued-I'm glad you have one last ball to squeeze another pair from! I love the green for your rabbit's sweater-she's going to look so nice!

  14. I do love your sock blanket Karen, it really is a work of art. And your cowl! I knew it was going to be pretty, but it's even prettier than I imagined .
    I picked up yarn today to knit Porter a little cardigan.

  15. I love the sock yarn blanket. I love the colors in it! Since I don't knit socks that often I don't have the much yarn, but I do separate my scrap yarn into certain boxes for projects just like this!

  17. It's so much fun to pick up forgotten knitting projects. Love the sock blanket, it looks so big already! I'm wishing for Autumn too, I can't stand the heat sometimes here in Belgium. It's either miserable rainy summer weather or HOT without air to breathe, so I'm more a fan of the in between seasons :-)
