On the Needles - 2/5/16

The sleeve is ready to be seamed together, but I have to wait until I have some quiet time. I've never taken a provisional chain apart before, and it sounds like a lot of people dropped stitches at this part of the pattern.


I'm also hoping to cast on for the Carson Throw KAL this weekend. below are the colors that I chose for my blanket. I think I may take out the darker grey (second color) and start with yellow and then go to the light grey and blues. What do you think - keep the dark grey in or start with yellow????

On the Needles - 1/22/16

I started my Hitofude last weekend because with my work schedule, I don't know how much knitting I'll be doing during the week. Two of 14 repeats have been completed for the arms.  The yarn I'm using is Madelinetosh (big surprise right) Pashmina in the colorway Dahlia.  The pink yarn is my provisional cast on and will be removed later.

On the Needles - 1/8/2016

Happy New Year!  On January 1, I cast on the Spiral Cowl for the ESK Yarnathon KAL. Yesterday I completed it and earned several badges for the ESK Yarnathon.  The yarn is Madelinetosh Merino/Silk DK in Heartbeat. This was my first time knitting with this base, and I absolutely LOVED it. There definitely will be more projects using this yarn in my future.


Last night I cast on the Collina Hat which was published earlier this week. Last year I knit a Collina Scarf, and I had one skein left of the yarn I used so this will be a nice set now.  Sorry, no picture of that just yet.

On the Needles - 12/4/15

I have earned all of my ESK Yarnathon badges, so now I can get back to knitting whatever I want. Progress is being made on my Maya hat. I have half of a repeat to knit and then I can start the decreases. Once I complete this hat, I am going to work on finishing up some of the half finished projects.

The pattern is Maya (Ravelry link) and it also has instructions for a cowl.  The yarn is Yarn Love - Anne Shirley (discontinued) in Bolivian Chili. The photo makes the color look bright red, but it's more red-orange.


I'll be joining Judy next year with knitting the stash!  (At least that's my current plan.)

On the Needles - 11/20/15

I completed my multi-colored cowl last week which fulfilled my requirements for the ESK My Little Pony and ROY G BIV badges.


Now I am furiously working to complete the last 10 hexipuffs for the Hexipuffologist badge. I have 20 completed as of this morning. They're not difficult to knit, just time consuming. Then I will only have one more badge to complete - create and attach a pom pom which shouldn't take much time at all. My goal is to complete these last two badges before the end of the month.

On the Needles - 10/30/15

It's been a while since I've posted.  I lost my knitting mojo for a while, but it's back and I've finished several things.  All of my Loopy Academy Sophomore Year - Semester 1 projects have been completed. The links go to my Ravelry project pages if you want to know more about the pattern or yarn.


Adama Cowl - Textured Assignment


Cold Snap - Cables Assignment


Independence Pillow - Pillow Assignment

I've also been working on trying to complete the ESK Q4 badges. I have six more to go.


Twilight Jacob's hat that he wore at LaPush beach - Movie Badge


Currently I'm working on the Hexipuff badge. I need to knit 30 of these. I had originally said I wasn't going to do this but I'm getting close to completing all of the other badges so I figured it would be a crime to not earn the next level prize because I didn't complete one badge. I'm using up leftover yarn from other projects.

I also finally received my Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails yarn and have cast on a cowl for the My Little Pony and ROYGBIV badges. It's not very far along so I don't have a picture yet.
