Knitting News


My current hitchhiker shawl is the project I take to babysitting since I have the details memorized and I just zip along.  What a comforting knit to do!  I can see why many of my friends in blogland knit this over and over again.


The Yoke pullover sweater is my addictive knitting project that I cannot get enough of.  However I cannot read a book nor do much of anything while knitting.  So I listen to a talky-talky show on Netflix or listen to a podcast or just listen to my inner thoughts. 

I am keeping with the dark gray contrasting color that I was initially ambivalent about.  (took me three tries to spell ambivalent!!!).  The more color-work that is done the better the dark gray looks to me.


What are you working on this week?

  1. Both of your projects look great! I'm still slogging through my current Hitchhiker, but since it's starting to feel like a slog, I may need to take a break with some ufo socks.

  3. I really like the dark gray and am so glad you decided to keep it. I'm currently working on a cute hat, the yarn and pattern of which I got when I visited Purl Soho a couple of weeks ago. It's a beautiful lilac color and I'm looking forward to wearing it when it's complete!

  4. I am probably the only one who has yet to make a hitchhiker shawl. I love the color you are using for it. The colored yoke sweater is great and the dark gray does set it off. It took me three times to say ambivalent in my mind to get the pronunciation correct.

  6. One of the most wonderful things, about being able to knit........ Keeping one's hands busy, while listening to something, or just pondering. Somehow, that sounds like the perfect pairing, of "doing" and " listening"...

    So I envy you. -smile-

    Yes, I tried to learn, but it was more stressful, than comforting. -smile-

  7. You knit at an alarmingly fast rate! I cannot believe how quickly those balls have turned into such a beautiful beginnings of a sweater. I have three projects on the go, a dishcloth, a sock and shawl ;)

  8. Your yoked sweater is going to be gorgeous. I can also see how the colorwork yoke requires focused knitting. I keep looking at the yoke sweaters. There are so many pretty ones. Maybe I'll knit one next winter. Aren't hitchhikers the best peaceful knitting? I so enjoy coming back to your blog to see what you have written.

  11. Oh gosh! That sweater start is GORGEOUS! Aren't Hitchhikers fun to knit? They are addictive in their own way. Your color choice for that is wonderful too.
