Knitting Comfort


I am thoroughly enjoying all of my projects on the needles when I do sit and knit.  This week is a busy one since we are approaching Easter.  I am nearly ready, I even finished the secret project knitting.  Hopefully I can share that soon.  I'm terrible at keeping secrets, so you must know how challenged I am right now.  Anyways- let's talk about knitting!

I'm finished with the decreasing of the body of the sweater and now am working on the increasing before I get to the finished edge.  I'm contemplating on doing a simple rib edging instead of my icord edging that I've done on the two previous sweaters.  I guess I'm up for a different look.


The cardigan is super squishy and soft.  Madeline Tosh Sock is a fabulous yarn!


I did reach the lace edging of my dandelion field shawl (a.k.a. pebble beach shawl). This yarn is soft and has the slightest of haze, light and airy.  I'm anticipating finishing this project over the weekend.

 Assuming I'm not talking on and on with relatives.


Both projects are comfort knitting- they are easy and relaxing and you know what you are doing when sit down to knit.  No surprises or odd questionable directions!

  1. I really appreciate Madeline Tosh colors and think your cardigan is going to be quite special. I also love the colors in your perfectly named dandelion field shawl; that's exactly what my lawn is starting to look like and I love the cheery yellow and green combination. Happy knitting and Happy Easter!

  2. Isn't it wonderful to have projects like that ...easy to do, but oh, so enjoyable! I am currently crocheting a baby afghan for our niece who is having a baby boy in July. It is like that...easy to pick up when I have the time and easy to talk while doing so. Both your cardigan and your shawl are beautiful, Karen.

  8. Both of your projects are the perfect color for spring! : ) I have a question for you. I would like to knit a baby blanket with some fingerling yarn I purchased from Amanda (@littlehousebigwoods), do you know of any easy pattern that would work? The yarn is fingerling weight.

  10. Your knitting looks so happy and spring-like! I hope you get to add a few rows amidst all the family chatter. (thankfully, all my family gatherings include knitting ... years ago, I taught my sister and SIL to knit, and more recently a niece!)

  17. Madelinetosh yarns are so nice to knit with. Your sweater will be a great weight for a spring day. I'm behind the times but I sure like the look of the purple gradient yarns. Happy Easter.
