On The Needles


Last week I showed you my 2 completed and 1 in progress dishcloth. I was on a dishcloth knitting frenzy with completed and gifted. This is number 5. I'm sure I'll use up this ball of yarn before this one is finished so I'll just add something else to it. There are plenty of little yarn balls in that bin and this makes me smile knowing the yarn is used up, making room for something else.  I really am trying to use up.



I worked a lot on my sock to get past the heel so I can put it back in the travel bag and work on something different at home. 


My new something different is another pair of socks. I love this Monkey pattern! I made one pair and every time I wear them, I tell myself to make another pair. I had read about a no purl pattern so I started looking around Ravelry and found all kinds of No Purl Monkey socks.  I love the Projects feature of Ravelry and quite often loose track of time whenever I use it.  I know you know what I mean. snicker~snicker

So here I am in the middle of the second repeat. I found myself being confused with the pattern so I printed up my own with a large font and use my clicker to keep me on track. The pattern is so easy and so fun. I'm sure I'll have these 2 skeins of yarn gone from the stash in no time.

While I was searching around, I found my next sock pattern. Jigsaw Socks--full of texture and fairly easy. Just my kind of pattern!  I think I'll knit for a while this morning.

See other fabulous projects today at Patchwork Times.

Thank you for sharing the patterns to your current and future socks. I love the Jigsaw pattern. Your striped socks are looking great... love the colors.

I checked out your new sock patterns and put them in my library. I just started knitting in July so I have decided to not do more socks until my knitting anniversary and then maybe knit another 6 pair for an even dozen of hand knit socks for next winter. Now on to my sweater.

Monkey is a fun pattern, isn't it? Check out Spring Forward in Knitty; it's similar and also very pretty. Good job on the wash cloths!

I've been on a dishcloth knitting kick lately, too. I'm trying to use up my stash.
