Wednesday is for Knitting

It took me a few days to get back into the swing of it, but as always a few moments browsing Ravelry and all I can think about is what I want to knit next. 

When I was admitted to the hospital I had about 20 rows (decreasing rows) to go on my Cha Feel Shawl, but this visit to the hospital was just not the time for knitting, Last Tuesday, after I was home I picked it up and had it finished with ends woven in and single crochet trim in about an hour and a half.  I start Boo Knits Changeling Shawl and had Tom pick me up some cheap yarn in oranges for a bird per the request of my 13 year old granddaughter Gwen.  (I still have Madison shawl, Morticia Shawl and a table runner on the needles but.............).  Since then I have knit a little bit every day. I have half a wing and two feet to make for the bird, Quite a bit on the Changeling but I am already eyeballing a few other projects too.  And I am woefully behind on my Charity hats, I don't think I have ever slipped up like this on my charity commitments. 

Here are some photos----remember the shawl isn't blocked yet, that will take Master Blocker's doing, so only he and God know when. 

The bird is Rebecca Danger's Bob the Blue Footed Booby in 2 shades of orange, some yellow and a rainbow varigated with extra orange since it is all knit with 2 strands held together.

What are you knitting??



  1. Glad you're knitting!! That implies you are on the mend in my head. Don't worry about "commitment knitting" now - you need recovery knitting time! Once you're well - I have every confidence you will catch up!

  2. Just stopping in for my usual butt kicking in You're recovering and knitting "REAL" patterns.

    What am I knitting? A two-needle hat....the pattern from World Vision. 54 st. K1P1 for 10 rows then St st for 6-1/2 inches. gather and sew. Voila'. Red Heart GumDrop and Caron Simply Soft. woot. I going to try to put it on a circular, those purl rows give me a pinch, even though I pick instead of throw.

    On a better note, so I had stored my yarn and extra fabric in wire grids that snap together into cubes, a total of 12 cubes on the wall. One came unsnapped. As I was fixing, two more big....

    then the whole mess came down like dominoes. The cats found it quite amusing.

    My yarnoire is now a plastic utility shelf with storage tubs.
