I thought I would give the board a boost and ask what everyone is working on.
I have a sweater, socks and a chemo cap on the needles right now. How about you?
Right now I have a string market bag on my needles and two more to knit. After that I am going to knit a shawl for my daughter-in-law.
just leg and arm warmers for my grand son and hat will be next.
How are you?
Home and good, except for feeling the weather! Thanks Moni. Did you make it home ok from your bike ride? I just came back from the yarn shop with needles, a pattern for a scarf and yarn! Like I needed more yarn, but whats a girl to do?!
I am working on a sweater also and a gift for my cousin's daughter's baby due around Christmas. I cannot wait finally a little one to knit and sew for.
Hi Lizzie2. Babies sure are fun to knit for!
I did a stocking hat for my grandson Friday night. It's all finished! I worked on the pair of socks a little today, but my hands hurt too much to keep working with the small needles.
Just starting a sweater. Been busy quilting. Of course there are always mitts on my #5's.
Been working on this since August and hope to finish it before Xmas. It is fun, but I'm NOT looking forward to weaving in all those ends. this is my first crochet chart work and I'm so glad DH could enlarge the chart for me or I'd be going blind by now! ;-) It is a Mary Maxim kit.
Thanks for showing us the back side of the project. I always like to see the reverse side of projects because it shows the actual work involved.
This looks great, I know what you mean about the loose ends. I sometimes weave mine in as I go so I won't be faced with all that work at once. My arthritis no longer allows me to crochet but thankfully I can still knit.
Babka! That's beautiful! Thank you for the pictures. I know what you mean about the ends. In crochet, I usually work over the ends, then trim them. In knit, it's much harder to do that, but I try to weave most of them in as I go with a needle.
Tami....who's glad to see some activity on the knitting board!
I started out working over the loose ends, but then I changed my mind. I wanted the reverse side to look just like the front side, so I chose to weave the individual colors back on themselves so they wouldn't show through the stitches. Anal, I guess.
Not anal, just wanting it to look nice!
