Knitting News

I'm having a love affair with the cable! In my very limited kniting experience it is one of the most fun stitches to do. Check out some pictures of my latest projects; one of which includes a wonderfully chunky cable running right up the center of the scarf.

The rust yarn on the single needle is the very beginning of a hat for Brookie. This pattern I am teaching myself how to do a picot edge. I think the yarn color is so rich and yummy!

The last couple of pictures show Small Fry modeling his new hat. On this project I learned how to use DPN's (double pointed needles). This was a cute little pattern available for free on Ravelry.

We have received news that our closing date for the new house is scheduled for this Wednesday afternoon. Yippee! Now I just want to scramble and get my mom's kitchen curtains done. I'm working on the valance for the last window.


  1. Ive always been interested in knitting. Although I've never tried it, ha. I think knitted items are pretty

  2. Woo-hoo on having your closing date!! How exciting!!!

  3. Looks really nice. I take it the double pointed needles worked just fine for you! Yay :) Time to do some socks.

  4. I'm still working on the whole DPN thing. I'm trying to make some fingerless gloves to wear around the house (since we keep the heat so low) and I would love to do a hat one of these days. I also am in love with the cable stitch!


Thanks for visiting. I love to hear from you; comment away!
