On The Needles


Sometimes my fingers just want to knit something new. That's what happened this week.  I was going to finish this scarf and put off starting Hitchhiker but I just couldn't do it. I was also going to start Wingspan first but that didn't happen either.


The other day Judy L wrote a post about kitting up her projects. A light bulb flashed in my head. I do this with my quilting but not my knitting.  I have several projects for the near future so I spent some time getting them into bags with the instructions. (That's how Hitchhiker got started!) I guess I should learn to use the Ravelry Queue. I'm sure it's easy to do, I just haven't done it yet. Yarn is on the way for Dreambird and Rival Cardigan. Leftie needs a contrast yarn, I'm not sure what I'll use yet, that's on the list for a shopping trip.


I worked on the afghan quite a bit. Instead of procrastinating any further, I convinced myself to work on it every day for at least 1/2 hour If I do that, it will be done by the end of the month. I only have 8 squares left to finish and know as soon as I start to join the squares, I will not stop until it's finished. I'm about out of the aqua yarn so my original design using it for the first border has changed. I am not buying any more of this yarn. I'll use what I have and call it perfect.

I can't wait to see what others are working on......(this is how most of these projects got started). I'm headed over to Patchwork Times to see what else I can add to my list.

Judy, your Hitchhiker is looking good! I had the same thought, I need to bag my yarn with the appropriate pattern. It's so easy to lost track of what use I had in mind for yarn when I buy it!

Love seeing those projects all bagged up and ready. Your Hitchhiker looks great. It's so pretty the way the sideways stripes go with the yarn. I'm headed off to look at the Rivel Cardigan.

My friend and I have been planning on doing a KAL using wingspan. Hopefully in the next month. Love your yarn choice.

I just bought Rival Cardigan pattern as I've got the yarn!

Love your Hitchhiker. I need to do that and Wingspan. Soon, I hope! Now to check out Rival......

Ah I just added that cardigan pattern to my stash earlier this week - now just have to find the right yarn for it.

I always have multiple knitting projects on the needles - some for nights when I can concentrate only on them and others for mindless knitting while visiting with friends.

Your projects look so inviting all kitted up and ready to go! I only have a few projects waiting in the wings (Dreambird!), but I think I need to start doing this too. Thanks for the idea!!! I love how your Hitchhiker scarf is coming along - wonderful colors!
