Knitting This Week

6:00 AM

It's Wednesday again and that means it is time for the weekly yarn along!  I am joining with Ginny and everyone to share yarn and books.  I finally finished my two at a time, toe up, magic loop socks!  In fact, I am wearing them right now!  There are some mistakes, but they were essentially the first socks I've made two at a time and using magic loop.  More practice is definitely needed.  Eventually.  I've really got to finish all of the current on the needle projects.

I just spent several days color coding my Sylvi sweater chart for the back and the hood.  And that isn't even all of the chart symbols.  I didn't color code the knit or purl stitches or even the k2tog or the SSK.  I hope I haven't got in over my head with this pattern!

Work continues on the ballet cardigan for C and I'm afraid I'm going to have to start over with my Hitofude.  I put it aside while I was working on raffle and Christmas knitting and it will just be easier to start over.  I'm also still working on the woven scarf and while I'd like to say there is light at the end of the tunnel, it is a dim light at the moment.

I'm not reading anything new.  I am still working on Las Hechizadas on my ipad.  I just don't read that much on my ipad and if I do read on it, it is because I am up later than my husband and he has already gone to bed.  I have been looking at book on my "to read" queue on Goodreads.  There may be a couple of books that I can only buy as ebooks on Amazon.  A little disappointing as I do still like paper books!  

Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!

  1. What is that in the picture? Is that the ballet cardigan? I love it!

  2. You can do it Jen, just take it one stitch at a time.
    I do like the idea of color coding the chart, I will remember that for
    when I have a big chart.
    I am finally on Goodreads :) I am Tracey~Clover.

  3. That coding looks super complicated :) You'll do great with it though!

  4. It's such a gorgeous sweater - but very complicated. Color coding is a great idea! I can't wait to see it finished.

  5. Hi Jen! In answer to the question you left on my blog, I usually do top down socks so there is only the kitchener stitch as the bottom. The couple of times I have done toe up I used Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off which you can find on youtube.

  6. I have a long list of what I want to read on GR and I have a kindle so I've been loading it up on the classics. I also made a new shelf on GR of books I own and want to read so I don't buy the same book---it happens! Love the coded chart!!

  7. i love goodreads, but i don't use it to queue books and makes lists....really should. great idea!!!
