On The Needles

Not much yarn fondling this week.  
I spent most of my recliner time napping under a quilt. 
Crazy, nasty cold!
I did knit a few rows on the Baby Beanie.

I did not touch my Jeck socks.

I did order this book from Amazon.
I have not given up on making myself a sweater.
It was big enough to cover the house.
I took it all apart.
I made myself a shawl instead.
I love my shawl.
I am wearing it right now.

What's on your needles?
Check out Judy's socks and other needled projects here.

My needles have been idle this week, but I have several projects started: a baby sweater, a reader's wrap, two washcloths, and a dishtowel. I really need to get busy on these long, stalled projects!

I keep getting inspired to do socks but I want to do toe up...just so I can use the yarn I have, since I can't get anymore. I'll tackle it soon. Last time I tried, about 4 years ago the pattern was written in Greek, at least to me. I am almost ready to try again.

Do you think if I just added a few more stitches to the Baby Beanie, that would make it large enough for a 4 - 6 month old?

Hope you're feeling better real soon!

LOVE the baby beanie yarn... too cute! Your sweater book looks so interesting! I so want to make a wonderful sweater, but there is no need... I would melt down here in Louisiana in a sweater. I'll have to be satisfied with the Reader's Wrap I am working on... a really FUN knit... my mission is to tempt YOU into making one, too! HAHA! Hope you feel better soon.

Hope you are feeling better soon.

Feel better soon! Love the hat yarn color.

If this lingers, hie yourself to a doctor 'cause I've heard about a lot of pneumonia around lately. Don't you love that Amazing yarn?

love the yarn for the beanie. I made a sweater vest once I was in high school, it went with a shirt and slacks I made for a 4_H project, I wore it until the cuffed pants went out of style.

Good that you are taking the time to heal. I think I have the same yarn that you are using for your first project...Feel better!
