Knitting News


This week has been a knitterly week for me. I've been spending lots of time in the afternoons knitting away while reading a book.  This cowl has me captivated by the simplicity of the pattern and the ease to multitask while knitting. 

After last week of having the 'blahs' regarding creativity, I'm thrilled to be inspired and enthusiastic in my knitting. 


I've decided the super secret project isn't so much of a super secret.  I'm spending a ton of time on it so I might as well share with you what I'm working on.  Otherwise you will think I'm not knitting much at all!  (Also the truth is I hate keeping knitting secrets).

I'm making a baby blanket for my niece who is due in November.  I dug deep into my yarn stash and started a dishcloth pattern (start at corner and increase).  My goal is to have the blanket measure 36 inches by 36 inches, however, this is dependent on how much yarn I have.  I've been having fun striping in new colors as I go.

This project is in my lap while watching season 3 of Stranger Things (good golly the suspense!!).

  5. I love the stripes and texture combo on your cowl. And the baby blanket! I've knit myself several 'dish cloth' blankets but never thought to fade the stripes. Yikes! I might have to start another one.

  10. How fun to be knitting for a new baby. Glad your creativity has returned. It’s frustrating feeling blah. I couldn’t watch more than one episode of Stranger Things at a time, so exciting!

  12. I am glad you chased the blahs away. I think knitting will do that. Don't you just love miles of garter stitch? The blanket will be so soft and cozy. Love the cowl. I have a few, or more than a few, leftovers that would work up well in that pattern too.
