knitting update

30 Mar

Someone asked me in a comment lately, what I had been knitting.  I realized it HAD been a while since I had written a knitting update, so here we go…

So, here are a few on the projects I have been working on.  First is a sock monkey,  I love sock monkeys =D  I have made them out of socks, but never knit.  This is new for me.  Then I have a pair of socks on the needles in pink, blue and purple.  The final is a mitre blanket made out of left over sock yarns.  The colors are a little funky, but I love the way it is coming together.

What are you knitting this weekend?

    I love the mitre squares. What size needles? I might have to try that with larger needles and leftover worsted weight yarn. Very cool and colorful.

    Last night I finished a Super Long & Funky Stockingcap (just in time for 80+ degree weather this weekend), and this weekend I’m going to use some of the leftover wool from the hat to make some knitted felted Easter eggs.

    aww, thank you. I am making it out of sock yarn, so i am thinking 1 or 2’s. you can do it with any yarn and any needles, just match your needles to your yarn. =D
    I had so much sock yarn, and was intrigued by the thought of such a light blanket…

    isn’t that the way? my sister gave me wool for my birthday which is in july! the nice thing is, yarn stores well, doesn’t it? 😉

    the eggs sound fun, i can’t wait to see pictures.
    thanks for dropping by!=D

    I knit a miter Pillow once, well I knit half the pillow, I still need to do the other side, but all the projects that I don’t finish (and I’m pretty bad at finishing things) go into my “blanket of awesome” all the patterns that I thought I’d complete the whole thing but didn’t- goes on the blanket of awesome… lol
