Knitting News


Good morning!  November first, isn't it grand?  I finished my hat over the weekend.  I haven't even looked at what hat pattern to knit next, even though I said that was what I was going to do.  If only there were more hours in the day.  My past few weeks have been a slurry of physical therapy and babying my sore twitchy back.  However, I'm seeing some promising healthy weeks ahead as I ease out of physical therapy and into a new exercise program (yay).

While I dither about on what hat pattern to cast on,  I've been knitting plain old garter stitch wash clothes for a knitting palate cleanser.

What are you knitting up? Or crafting?

  1. I am happy to see November arrive. I am plugging away at a shawl and looking forward to casting on a vest for our tiny person and probably another hat.

  2. I am working on a afghan for daughter for Christmas. Two baby sweaters, and putting all my new yarns in stash on Ravelry. I am thinking I might try some hats to use up some great one skein yarn purchases.

  3. That is a beautiful hat and I think your gift recipients are very lucky indeed! I'm trying to finish my gradient Hitchhiker so I can start what I really want to knit - a Match and Move with my new yarn!

  7. Nice work on the hat! It is hard to believe that 2017 is winding down, that's for sure. Hope your back improves quickly. What exercise program will you be following?

  8. Karen, how many years have gone by where I have written to say that I really am going to start knitting this winter? : ) Too many! Although I did knit a hat for my brother last year, so I guess I won't be too hard on myself, LOL! I love the color of your hat, you don't see purple very much any more and it is one of my favorite colors. I have so much yarn from attending Squam that I think I may just choose one and knit a simple scarf!

  9. I'm continuing on with the stole that I am crocheting for a friend and then it will be some dish cloths to crochet. I'm switching back and forth between soaping and crocheting. :)

  10. I hope to sew before Craft Night Friday. I wanted to make more zipper pouches and give two to my neighbors.

  11. I have mixed feelings about November. I love fall and T-giving, but it's stressful at school with the time off but no less work. Beautiful hat!

  13. I am so glad all your PT is having a positive affect, its like having a new lease of life when joints start to work again and the pain reduces, or that's how I feel, you really appreciate everything, will keep hoping for you that it carries on. That hat is gorgeous.
