Knit one and one and one...

What’s Jack up to? He bummed about the terrible weather and being stuck inside. Sorry Jack.

It’s knit Wednesday. Last week’s Knit Wednesday got moved to Friday. It was hosted by the lovely PVE. As you can see here, her artistic flare is evident in all she does. And this weeks got derailed by a snow/rain storm and school delay. Oh well, it should be a good writing day.


I finished my ribbon scarf from that wonderful Colinette Giotto yarn. I think I like it. That’s always the way with me once I finish a project. But this is what I wanted, a long skinny scarf that I could wear with tee shirts. It’ll do the job.










So now I’m at a knitting crossroads. I’ve got a sock on some needles that I’m not too excited about knitting, but I am excited to wear, so I need to knit them. I should have tried them in a pattern. But really the problem is I want to start a new project. Something that will not be too hard, but look hard and will bring me into the spring. But do I really want to do a whole sweater? No. Hmm, maybe a shrug? I’d love to try one in a fancy stitch. Now there’s a possibility. Time to hit the books.

Best,
Kwana

Beautiful scarf!! You're very talented. I don't know how to knit so I always admire those that can. :-)

Hi Brown Girl,

Believe it or not I learned from book and a weekend with a how to video! You can do it too.

How bout' a patchwork blanket, like mine. You can learn different stitch work and never get bored. I can teach you to cable or intarsia or.... the options are endless! Patchwork rocks on beautiful stitch witch!

Hey Anonymous, You gave yourself away! You're right. Great idea and you know I did start on those cotton squares and I have a ton of that yarn. I'll pull it out again while I think of another project.
Thanks for the reminder!

Kwana, where do you buy your yarn? I live in New Rochelle. Woolworks in Pelham is closing. There's a little shop in Larchmont, but I haven't been thrilled with their selection. Any suggestions?

Hi Parentjazz. Thanks for visiting. I go to 2 yarn shops: Sticks & Strings in Scarsdale and Flying Fingers in Tarrytown. Both are excellent.
I love to hang at Flying Fingers they are always so helpful with any questions.

When I get a chance I like to go to Purl Soho in the city. Fab yarn but always crowded. It's a tiny shop and quite a destination for knitters.
