{September 2, 2006}   Knit On

Until last weekend I hadn’t picked up my knitting needles since finishing the baby blanket. I guess you could say I was knitted out. Last weekend I picked my needles back up and made a bunny washcloth.

I found the pattern here. The bunny is second from the bottom. I’m working on my second purple one then I’m going to switch to black yarn and make a couple. It’s fast and easy so I’ve been knitting them while at work.

I also started another pair of socks. This pair is for me. I wanted Magic Stripes, but couldn’t find any so I purchased Caron’s Simply Soft Shadows. I eventually found Magic Stripes at the Benfranklin in Kernersville, the last place I would have thought to look. Once I finish up my Shadows socks I’m going to start on my Magic Stripes sock.

I’m also going to start another sweater. I bought Big Girl Knits¬†and am planning to make the Lift and Separate Wrap. I need to find a substitute yarn since the yarn it calls for isn’t washable and dryable. I’m way too messy to even think about making something I can’t throw in the washer and dryer.


{July 9, 2006}   Baby Blanket Blues

I finished the baby blanket I was making for a co-worker. I thought I had a much longer time to get it done since she isn’t due until August. I had two weeks to knit the whole thing before the baby shower. I made the deadline with a day to spare.

The pattern is the Fun Stitch Baby Blanket. I used a garter stitch instead of a seed stitch. I kept screwing up the seed stitch and having to rip it back out so I decided to go with an easier garter stitch.

What does a 20 foot pink scarf look like?

Your probably wondering why I knitted a 20 foot long pink scarf. It's to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer. It's a part of the 50 mile long pink scarf that is being put together by United In Pink. They are rasing money and awareness by making a 50 mile long pink scarf and they are asking people to help knit the scarf and donate money. They hope to have the scarf done by October 2006 which happens to be Breast Cancer Awarenss Month. You may or may not know that Doug's Mom Martha passed away from breast cancer in March of 2004. I thought it was only fitting that I participate in the making of this scarf since she was the one who taught me to knit.
