Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

Bigger Projects

Abe and I have had a house under contract. We hit a point two weeks ago where we were simply waiting to close. Knowing this was the calm before the storm, I applied myself to some serious knitting, all hours of the day and night.

Here I am knitting on the men's earflap hat at midnight.

Prior to the closing, I finished the sisters scarf, which is waiting for a single crochet edge to help it lay flat. Look how long!

I also started the sisters skirt, which will be A line with this cute little layer on the bottom.  There will be Petersham peeking out from the two layers once it is finished.

I was looking for some instant gratification, so I whipped this hat up in a few hours using Pemaquid by Fibre Co.  It's funny, I started by going through patterns to find a hat pattern to mindlessly knit, and I found I couldn't commit to any of them.  I ended up making it up as I went along.  Is this whole book project going to change my knitting world as I know it for good?!

On Thursday we closed on our house.  WOW!  So as you can see, I now have a bigger project to work on.  I spent the past few days stripping wallpaper, while Abe lifted four layers of linoleum of the kitchen floor to find hardwood.

BUT, when I get home at night, knitting still calls my name.

I started the Burly Spun blanket.  I'm knitting it on size 15 needles, so it's a nice change of pace.

AND, I was able to get 4 new projects out to my guild knitters (THANK YOU THANK YOU!) so I look forward to seeing the progress on these as the weeks go by.

Enough writing, I'm going to do some knitting!
