So now I'm working on an article about knitting nirvana a/k/a knitting retreats and I'm knitting a pink shrug, and a sock to finish a pair for my husband (size 12 feet it may be awhile).

Im knitting a Christmas Stocking. Never made one and our library had a giant box of donations and I picked this one. (great find for $1.00) It is a Bernat kit with yarn and instructions for either a knit or croched version. I picked knit. I am not doing the graph parts for name or snowman. As simple as this might sound the instruction are not so clear so I am basically eyeballing it till I get to the part for the heel. Should be done for Christmas 2009 laugh

Here's a simple one that I use.

Cast on 40 (use a cotton yarn)
R1 k4 p4 repeat across
R2 rep. row 1
R3 p4 k4 repeat across
R4 rep. row 3

Continue this way until square, bind off.
This makes a kind of scrubbie cloth

I'm knitting a, well, I'll call it a shoulder cape. I started spinning in October, so this is my first project with my own hand spun yarn. I've been knitting for 40+ years, so it's my own design.

I am finishing a scarf for my grand daughter and I have a pair of mittens started .. for me and then another scarf for another grand daughter. Then it is time for socks!!!


There is no such thing as too much yarn, or too many needles!! Or too many knitting bags either.

We've got 3 projects for the New Year. Our local hospital has requested downsized, homemade receiving blankets for the babies that don't make it home. I refer to them as "Angel" blankets. In 3 weeks the OB ward received 20 of them. Based on this response, the main hospital wants to be included as well. They had been purchasing them. According to a volunteer they will need 4 to 5 each month for both hospitals. the babies are photographed and the blankets are placed in memory boxes for the parents. I'm sure some will think this to be morbid. However, if I can help, in even the smallest way, someone who has experienced such a loss, count me in.

Our 2nd project is lap afghans for the VA hospital

And my 3rd is 100 scarves for the Indian School in MT. I've got 4 completed already.

Somewhere in all this I've got 3 wraps to make for Christmas. I'll be knitting away in 09 and loving every minute.

I recently was in the in the UK and found Harry Potter sock yarn, Harry Potter and was wondering if anyone else has used this and if they have a pattern they recommend?
Thanks
