On the Needles - 8/22/14

I cast on a Hurricane Hat which has been in my Ravelry favorites since I've started knitting. The first two decreases are done. Hopefully this will be finished this weekend.

Yarn Report - Week Ending 8/15/14

No new yarn in. I finished my Camp Loopy scarf which used 805 yards. I sure would like to get down to less than 5,000 in the hole but that's at least 2 sweaters worth. And then there is the Black Friday sale at Eat.Sleep.Knit in November. Must knit faster!

Off the Needles - 8/15/14

I finished my third Camp Loopy project a couple days ago.  This is one loooooong scarf as it used 805 yards.  I absolutely love it though, although I'm not in a rush to wear it. I'm loving our current weather. I still need to take a decent finished picture of it to put on The Loopy Ewe photo gallery.


Last night I swatched for Heathered, but I think I'm going to cast on a Hurricane Hat for the Eat.Sleep.Knit Q3 challenge - to knit something that's been in your favorites or queue since you started knitting.

Yarn Report - Week Ending 8/8/14

Nothing in or out this week. This does not mean I haven't been *looking*. The new Interweave Knits magazine came out last week, as well as the new Twist Collective Fall patterns. I found several patterns that I would love to knit which lead me to looking for possible yarn/color choices.

My favorite one being the Saddleback Cardigan (photos taken by Interweave Knits). Look at that back with all those cables! Yum!

On the Needles - 8/8/14

One week in to the last Camp Loopy project, and I'm over halfway! This is a pretty easy knit, but it's getting a little monotonous since I'm knitting the same 28 rows over and over. I have completed 16 repeats and have about 8 more to go before I'm finished. This is going to be one looooooong scarf when completed.


I'm enjoying knitting with this yarn, Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Heavyweight. The second skein has several areas where the twist is messed up and it's thinner in spots. I can't see a difference in the fabric of the scarf, so I'm just going with it. I love this colorway (Cariblue), but then that's the requirement for Project #3 -- to knit a project in your favorite color(s).
