I kept missing the Friday OTN post because I hadn't taken any pictures of what I was working on, but finally got my act together this week.
I'm addicted to these little guys. I guess it's the instant gratification and the fact that I can finish them without having to rip anything, and they are so relaxing to knit! I just can't stop making them. They will make great stocking stuffers, so I'll keep making them for a while longer. Some of the yarn only makes one with a little yarn left over, but not enough for a second one. I'm hoping the tangerine yarn will last enough to finish this second one that I have on the needles now. If not, I'll take some of the leftover green or multicolor yarn and finish it for my use. My dishes won't care if they are scrappy looking. The yarn is the 100% cotton Sugar and Creme brand, but the length varies within the skeins.
On my circular needles is the beginnings of a shawl that I started last month. It's taking forever to see any progress. It seems after an hour or two of knitting, it only grows a half inch more; and, I have to concentrate more, can't talk and knit at the same time. It's the 3S Shawl that was so popular earlier in the year and everywhere I looked someone was making it. Anyway, I still have to check the pattern frequently so I don't make silly mistakes. You see, I still don't know how to fix dropped stitches, especially when I don't realize I've dropped them! Another reason it's taking forever might be because the needles are Size #2. I wish I had started this on a #3 or $4. By now it might be half finished. lol Sure hope I can finish it before Spring arrives so I can at least wear it once.
Stop on over at Judy's and see what others are working on this week.
