Many things are on many needles – I still haven’t gathered them all together to figure out my plan of attack for getting the Unfinished Knitty Objects (UKOs) finished. But the three that I am currently working on are the Drifted Pearls scarf – Camp Loopy 1st Quarter project which you can see HERE in yesterday’s blog post.
Although it doesn’t look like much all scrunched up on the circular needle, here’s how far I am on the Greta vest.
Both those patterns can be found on Ravelry.
There’s also a pair of SKYP socks I’ve been working on – just another 2″ or so on the foot of the first sock and I’ll be ready to finish that one off.
See what others have on their needles over at Judy’s.
Today, the first day of my 4 day weekend, is off to a slow lazy start. I got up early, turned on the coffee pot, snuggled up in a chair with a quilt and have been knitting and looking around me thinking what a mess! But you never want to jump right into that cleaning – you must plan your attack, right? LOL
Spent some time perusing the Hancocks of Paducah catalog – there are too many fabrics that I think — that would be perfect for this project, or that project or……… put down the catalog lady and step away!! ROFLOL
No I did not immediately (or as of yet) place an order. LOL I’m not saying I’m out of the woods yet tho since my current fabric combination love is yellow and gray and there are some oh so pretty shades that I keep thinking wouldn’t one of my bid blocks look so pretty and springy in those (we’re headed toward single digits next week so I’m trying to think ahead to spring!). It was a bit disappointing tho that inside the catalog, where they show the fabric line that I designed the quilt pattern for, someone goofed and they gave credit for the “quilt design” (mine) to the “fabric line designer.” But I’ll get over it – mistakes happen.
So several cups of coffee later, and many more rows knit, I’m still contemplating my plan of attack for the day. The maid has not come to make me breakfast so I may have to find something myself to eat and Mother Hubbard has not restocked the pantry so there’s not much to choose from. (Thank goodness there was coffee!). So I think another cup of coffee while I figure out a grocery list and then I may actually get dressed and get busy around here. The only really true plans around here today are to go out to dinner with a friend and then to the grocery store – it’s a vacation day so I don’t want to work toooo hard. 😉
Don’t forget that tomorrow is the first Stitchin with Justquiltin 2013 free project. Button in the sidebar is the place to find all info on this project.
I haven’t decided yet if I’ll go pull more fabrics for this one in this size or if I’ll just concentrate on getting the smaller version I made last weekend quilted. I’ve got so many tops waiting to be quilted and I generally don’t repeat making a quilt design even in a different size.
But remember — in order to qualify for drawings for some of the “Justquiltin swag”, you need to actually stitch along , since at some point in the future I’ll ask you to post comments on a particular blog post with a link to share your progress on a project so we can see some eye candy and what fabrics you are using.
Tote bag, mouse pads, pens — just little goodies to give away. Okay -time to get seriously busy around here.
