Knitting News


Boom!  Another hat done and I've cast on another one going up a needle size.  This is the project that I work on in the early morning while doing my daily Mass readings and prayers.  I'd like to knit two more of these hats before Thanksgiving.  Ah, the suspense of whether I will succeed or not!

The shawl that I mentioned last week gets all my attention in the afternoons and evenings if my schedule permits.  I have high hopes of finishing this shawl by Friday. Placing markers every day before I pick it up to knit really helps me see the daily progress and I can keep measuring and doing my math.  Having concrete numbers takes away my panic and dread that I shamefully embraced last Wednesday.  I can do it!

What are you knitting this week?  Making progress?

  1. Two more nice warm hats in eight days sounds completely doable for you. I hope your back is comfortable and your needles swift!

  2. I started a hat! But, no time pressure on me, other than cold weather is coming!! LOL

    Steve started a book from the library. It is 700 pages. He has a week to read it. The pressure is ON! LOL

  7. Warm and wonderful! That's what that hat is. I have confidence you will finish the other two on schedule. ;) I'm stalled on the sleeves.... I'm not loving the magic loop. Ha! It'll be a fine thing if I've managed the whole body and stall out on the sleeves. I still haven't found my DPNs. Your productivity MAY inspire me to search again for them! Have a great day, Karen! blessings ~ tanna

  11. You are amazing in all that you finish! I've got lots of socks on the needles and other stuff as well. Knit faster, right?

  12. Sounds like you are making good progress on your projects. I'm knitting on a shawl and a pair of socks although I might need a break from sock knitting. Never thought I'd say that. The gray hat looks very classic and warm - the perfect combination for a gift.
