I love knitting!
It’s portable. You can talk to people and remain social while doing it. And it’s just a convenient way to satisfy that crafty itch when you may not have your sewing machines available.
Normally I don’t have a lot of projects on the needles, maybe two or three projects going at a time and I usually finish my projects or on the rare occasion, rip it out rather than keep many projects going at a time. But somehow I have let myself cast on a great number (for me) of knitting projects that aren’t getting finished. Right now I have three sweaters, two pairs of socks, a market bag, and a turtle on the needles and I’m really itching to start a few more projects. It’s really killing me not to start another pair of socks or a baby sweater that I want to make for a shower. But I’m trying to hold firm and at least finish two projects before starting another.
So the project that you see above is a pair of Monkey socks by Cookie A in a yarn I purchased at Jo-Ann’s. I really need to finish this pair because they’re promised to my youngest daughter. I think I may have started them last year sometime and they’re still not done. This is crazy late for me so I’m working hard to get some knitting projects off the needles.
As far as sewing goes, I did make some more burp cloths and washcloths for another expecting mother. That, at least got me some sewing machine love before working on the socks.
Okay, with that, back to the needles.
