Many projects on the go

Right now I have several projects I’m working on that I keep hopping back and forth between.  Variety is good.    I’ve got the “sweater of endless stockinette” that I’m working on (that I can knit on when I’m watching a really interesting show because right now it’s just long row upon long row of stockinette.

I have this beaded scarf I showed yesterday – I’ve made a bit more progress on.  I only have to pay attending to the first 8 and last 8 rows where the beads are alternated.

Camp Loopy August project was cast on after midnight on 8-1-20 since I was still awake and knitting into the week hours.   I’m calling my version Pink Sky at Night but the actual  The Sky at Night pattern by Lisa Hannes

In addition to using larger needles, I will be using more yardage than the pattern calls for since August Camp Loopy requires a project of 800 yards or more but this is an easy project to enlarge to make the most of the yarn you have.

Lastly (at least at the moment), I started another dishcloth out of some new Cascade Ultra Pima Fine.  This is super easy knitting.

And it will qualify for a year long KAL of different stitches I’m doing, plus some other badges for the ESK Yarnathon.   There’s a badge for placing an order on your birthday so last week I did so – I’m now 60  – so a coworker friend has been teasing me about “how much older I am than she is” — of course she turns 60 this month. LOL  Anyway, I ordered more Cascade Pima Cotton Ultra to make more dishcloths, finish some coaster sets I’m working on,  and see if this yarn can work for potholders (making it double layered.

Here’s all the pretty colors in my birthday order.
