What’s on the needles?

Right now most of what I’m knitting is all easy, mindless projects. I’ve been super busy at work and when I do finally get home, I’m just in need of something simple to knit on that doesn’t require a lot of thought.

The stripey scarf is still trucking along. I’m loving seeing how the colors change and it really is potato chip knitting.


Noro Striped Scarf with Bernat Mosaic yarn

This morning I decided it was time to start swatching for my next large project. I have had this yarn in my stash since Christmas 2012. It has tried to be a Narragansett Sweater 3 times. I finally gave up and frogged it. It just didn’t want to be that sweater.

I dug it out and started swatching for a Harvest by Tin Can Knits. I’m loving the sweater patterns she puts out because they are simple, and they fit me amazingly. This is a free one if you are looking for a simple cardigan.

Also laying about being knit on is a washcloth. This year I’m really wanting to knit down the cotton stash and build up a pile of cloths for gifting and for using around the house. This is my K-State themed cloth.

So that’s what is on my needles this week. What is on yours?

Until next time….

  1. I love berroco vintage!!

  2. How fun to stripe with striping yarns. That’s creative. One cannot go wrong with a comfy cardigan. I need to CO for my next beanie and I need to finish up a baby cardigan.
