Americana

Working with Red Heart Yarn, “Americana” self striping Red White & Blue making newborn baby hats for one of my charity projects.  Lois, a member of my Stitch & Bitch collects baby hats for the newborn babies of White Plains Hospital.  We often make hats with holiday theme colors. She came up with the brilliant idea to make these inclusivity hats as a “welcome to America” for the newborn babies. Red Heart Yarn can be found at any yarn store & places like Walmart for $2.88 a skein (in NY). One skein makes 3 hats.

I will glady accept yarn donations from anyone in the Westchester County in the NY area.

Yarn of course! I love using Socks That Rock, sock yarn for shawls…3.75 needles and I’m on my way!

I bought two hanks in ‘rare gems’ and I’m alternate using both balls using the triangle shawl pattern.

Scood

Spending this weekend getting my knitting on.
A friend made a beautiful Scood (scarf hood) and I am giving it a go too. I love the colors, it reminds me of coffee.

Circulars…

image

Not the insert kind in the Sunday paper…no, these are the knitting circulars. So many knitters swear by them…I’ve only used the straight needles so I’m looking forward to trying them.

I received these circulars with this card…compliments from Lisa Bogart! She has a new book coming out in October “Knit with Love” which sounds like a number of interesting stories of knitters & their art.

I’m currently reading “The Knitting Circle” by Ann Hood…it has me thinking about my Stitch & Bitch ladies & their lives.
