Conquer the Knit

Another long week flew by. Last weekend I started a knitting project.  I really want to master the knit as I believe I have with crochet.  I am just starting to decrease to finish off. I found a wonderful video You Tube to make a knit hat from Ruby Steadman.  I have found my preference for knitting is with circular bamboo needles. What is your preferred needles?

We've had gorgeous 60 degree weather here all week.  I went out for a few walks and spotted the first signs of fall. 

I am still working on my poncho.  Slowly but surely.  As it grows it's taking longer to complete a row and my attention starts to wonder. 

Poncho Progress

Happy Weekend all!!

Stash Busting

Last weekend I completed another border row on my crochet mood blanket. We'll see how many rows I will add.  Just going with the mood. LOL

I've also been working on this round ripple a bit.  Possible Christmas present/stash buster.

And I made a few Maybelle flowers, more stash busting.

Happy Weekend All!

Here Comes Fall

It's been a long week, especially with some extra hours at work.I still managed to work on the poncho as it is getting there. Additional yarnhad to be purchased and when I went to the store they had put it away as it is a summer season weight yarn.  But they did manage to pull out what they had and got another skein of each colour and an extra of the brown.  I have just been randomizing the strippingas I go.  It is just getting past my shoulders now.

The temperature dropped to the 60's this week.
I had to even cover up with another project to keep warm.

Yesterday was International Crochet Day.  What did you work on?

I don't drink coke or colas much but I was in the store yesterday 
and found my name on one of the bottles. Coke is doing the name
bottles currently and when I saw mine I had to grab one.

Happy weekend all!

Poncho Progress

Hope everyone had a great week.  It felt like a long week for me, working the holiday Monday
 and my first week on afternoon shift in years.  This week I have started a new project with the
new yarnI got last week.  It is a nice light weight yarn perfect for a garment.  I wanted
something to wear at work when it gets chilly.  I've always wanted to make a poncho,
so a poncho it is. This Cascade Ultra Prima Cotton is so soft. 

So what are you working on this weekend?
