Knitting News

 

First and foremost, Frodo is acting more like himself now that he is on some medicines to help him get better. Thank you for all of the well wishes for his speedy recovery, I am grateful.  

I started knitting a baby blanket yesterday for my nephew's baby-to-be that is due in mid-January. This yarn has been in my stash for over twenty years...I love when I use something that has hung around forever. Using stash yarn justifies the collecting of stash yarn.

I am on the second sock for my son in law for his hand made Christmas present. I had grand plans of finishing it over the weekend but I didn't.  Maybe by this weekend?? 


What are you working on this week?

  4. I'm so glad Frodo is doing better! I know how hard it has been on you. I have all three of my fur babies with medical issues right now. Lots of stress and worry.

  5. Frodo...get better soon!!! I, too, have a baby blanket that needs to be finished mid January....but I'm on a temporary hiatus from it. For some strange reason unknown to all....I have become somewhat of a monogamous knitter. WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?

  6. I'm glad to hear that Frodo is feeling better, and I think that almost every knitter has learned from the pandemic that their stash is an absolute necessity!

    We put Giroux on a new food a few weeks ago. Man, WHAT A CHANGE! It's like he is a kitten again. He obviously loves his new food.

  17. Whew! I am glad Frodo is feeling better. I know I love unearthing something quite old from my stash and finding it just right for the next project. January babies need warm blankets. I look forward to seeing more of it.

  19. Yay for Frodo getting closer to his normal self. I like that simple stitch pattern the baby blanket has; it looks like moss stitch?
