On The Needles


I'm working on using it up......the bits of yarn left from other projects.  This hat is made using leftover wool from this pair of slippers and these gray socks. If there are any bits left over, maybe I'll get brave enough to just drop them in the garbage.  Or maybe not.


The Honey Cowl is finished.  This is Project 1 for Sticks 'n Strings 2013.  I don't have 13 unfinished knitting projects but I have a few.  I'm going to do like Denise and finish an already started project before I can start a new one.  So the hat is my new project.  When that is finished, I have 3 scarves to choose from. Also on my list of 2013 Knitting Projects is a vest for Ernie and a sweater for me.  I'd like to get the scarves finished before I tackle either of these. I see a couple new hats being made before the vest, that thing is making me nervous!

Great job - one finish already!

I think the hat is going to be fun to wear with the eyelash yarn around the brim.

Finishing a project before starting a new one is a good idea. I'd better get busy and finish some knitting projects soon because I got a kit for Christmas that is calling to me.

I see that you post on Judy's blog frequently. I admire your prowess at socks, the colors make me positively envious. Socks are my #1 learning project for 2013, though quilting is my main squeeze. I enjoy your entries and your projects. Nice cowl, you'll be ready for that vest in no time.

Yum, love the honey cowl. I just finished a cowl but it was with Tosh Vintage which is a worsted weight. I'll have to go favorite the honey cowl. Thanks.
