on my needles

Thursday, March 24, 2016

I am the type of person that likes to have one or maybe two things on my needles.  Having more than that usually makes me a little uneasy.  I just don't like having all of those loose ends.  
I most prefer having one big project.  Usually a sweater.  And one small project like Toast or Toasty.  
We are home this week for Spring Break, so I've been trying to get my projects organized.  Making lists of things to finish and prioritizing which projects to work on first.  
 Love working on this Classic Elite sweater named Elen.  I think I should move this top on the list since it is a Spring/early Summer sweater.  The yarn is light and feels so good in my hands.
This yarn is just the funnest and makes these socks so much fun to make.  Easy to keep in my car for those moments spent waiting.  (Except for when I drop my extra needle down in between the seat and the console.)
 Almost finished with this wrap.  I've kept this project in my car all winter.  Simple and easy.  I just took it out of my car to try to finish.  And because I was afraid the mouse that was in my car (Yes!  I had a mouse in my CAR!  I left a pizza box in there.  DON"T do that!) was going to try to make a nest out of it.  I'll share the pattern soon.
The Maine Squeeze blanket.    So love this.  I can only usually work on this at home as it is quite bulky.

Have a wonderful day, Friends!

  4. I used to knit one project at a time. Now I have three on average. Not ideal. Your three projects look lively. I am drawn to your blue in particular.

  13. Knitting in the car, so I'm not the only one knitting in the carpool or between ballet lessons... I wonder what people who don't knit do in their car? The Ellen top looks very interesting, can't wait to see it finished.

  14. Love your projects. I'm so over sock knitting at the moment and I'm not sure why because I love handknit socks and my family will be so disappointed if there aren't socks at Christmas, but I just can't. maybe I'll start toasty for my commute project. :) Hope the mouse goes away! g
