On the Needles - 8/29/14

Thank you all for the nice comments about the Hurricane Hat. Quite a few of you said it went into your favorites and/or you printed out the pattern. Here is a picture of the finished hat.


Shortly after finishing my hat, I cast on Heathered. I figured now that I have to spend half of my work week up at the receptionist desk, my wardrobe could use a little makeover. I went clothes shopping (one of my most dreaded tasks) and found a dress (gasp! I'm more of a pants, preferably jeans, kinda gal) that I liked but it is sleeveless. When I saw Heathered, I thought it would be a great compliment to the dress.

I didn't have time to take a current picture, but this is what I knit on the first day. I couldn't put it down. It's a couple inches longer now and almost ready to split for the sleeves (which I hope to get to tomorrow since it's supposed to rain).

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!

Used this Week: 805 yards
Used/Destashed To Date: 7,523 yards

Added this Week: 0 yards

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!
