On the Needles - 11/21/14

After I took this picture, I finished the last contrast stripe. I should be able to start the ribbing Sunday since we have a busy day tomorrow. I have to work Monday-Wednesday next week but hopefully can a good start on the sleeves at the end of the week.

Yarn Report - Week Ending 11/14/14

I finished a second Windschief hat which used 125 yards. 

Both of my WEBS orders came last week but I didn't get to post until now. The first package had some new (to me) yarn and new (to me) colorways.  Shalimar Equus, Homage, and Madelinetosh.






The second order had Rowan Pure Wool Worsted yarn to use for Hay Cove, the test knit that Judy just finished. I ordered a couple extra colors in case one color didn't play nice with the rest.



The two purples that didn't make the cut.


I also received an order from Madelinetosh which had two colorways that I wanted to see in real life - Fir Wreath and Simone.

On the Needles - 11/14/14

Carabe was put aside for a little bit so I could finish my second hat for the ESK challenge. Now I can concentrate just on Carabe. I'm ready to split for the sleeves and body.

On the Needles - 11/7/14

Carabe is currently on the needles. There hasn't been much time to knit during the week, so it hasn't changed much since Sunday. I just started the second Carabe stripe. I'm using my lovely, new Knitted Wit Victory DK yarn. Yum!

Yarn Report - Week Ending 10/31/14

Nothing has come in this week. Hard to believe isn't it? I have two finishes to report. The check mittens used 187 yards and the Windschief hat used 125 yards.

There will be more yarn next week though. WEBS has free shipping thru today and, as some of you may know, they also offer discounts if you buy $X number of yarn. I took this opportunity to order some new (to me) yarn and some old favorites in colorways that I've never had before.

Used this Week: 312 yards
Used/Destashed To Date: 8,424 yards

Added this Week: 0 yards
Added To Date: 33,693 yards

Net Used/Destashed: (25,269) yards

On the Needles - 10/31/14

Happy Halloween everyone!!! Formerly on the needles was my hat (Windschief) for the Eat.Sleep.Knit Stephen West challenge. This was my first time using this yarn, Yarn Love, Anne Shirley (worsted weight). It's super soft and knits up really nice. The only thing I'm a little concerned about is the fibers are twisted pretty loosely so this may pill a lot. We'll see hat happens after it's worn and washed a couple times.


Next up will be Carabe. Judy and I are both knitting this and having an informal Carabe Knit Along. Feel free to join us.
