On the Needles - 1/17/14

Just like the Green Bay Packer's season, my Packer Baktus is done! You can find out more information about it at this blog post.

On Wednesday, I cast on my Eat.Sleep.Knit Q1 challenge "Try Something New" project. I have never knit mittens and it's been on my to-do list for a while so I decided now was the time.  I managed to get quite a bit knit in the one day. The pattern is Just Thumbkin and it's free on Ravelry. This also is my first time knitting with Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted yarn. It's super soft, but I think it's going to pill because it doesn't have a very tight twist. Hopefully I'm wrong. I'm still a little nervous about knitting that thumb, but hopefully it knits up quick without any issues. I'm hoping to finish mitten #1 tomorrow and cast on mitten #2 right away.

I also cast on a scarf last Saturday, but I don't have a picture of it. A friend of mine from Taekwondo asked me to teach her and her daughter how to knit. I found an easy free scarf pattern online that would teach them how to knit and purl. A couple other friends found out about our "Knitting Ninja Club" and asked if they could join us next month.
