Wednesday WIPS…

Multiple works in progress…it’s how my brain rolls.  I’m trying to focus my work on making more adults hats for our homeless shelter charity project but those baby hats sneak on my hook. Happy hooking and knitting!

I’m a lefty, my mom said I often changed hands when I was learning…I wanted to do both, why not!?

 

 

Shades of Pink…

 

It’s Peony Season and we get to enjoy the vibrant colors and fragrance of this beautiful bright Fushia flower.

Working on another Pink Pussy Hat, using #8 needles. This amazing color is “Manic Pink”. I love working with this soft extra fine merino wool = luxurious.

Charity knitting …

WIP Wednesday…on my needles.

I switched it up this week and started using large needles… making a garter stitch throw (in Oatmeal) that will  go to charity. There are enough projects my Stitch & Bitch work on, this one is going to: The VA Nursing Home.

Fall Season

 

I love Autumn.

 

Here in NY we did not see the usual bursting colors of bright Gold or Red leaves this year – not enough cool weather nor rain. But, it’s Fall.

I started a nice cozy, bulky cowl ,in this beautiful Green. Housed in my new Sheep project bag. I’m using #11 needles and knitting in the round, knit, knit, knit, knit…

The Farmer’s Market is winding down for the Season. I’ve stocked up on Cilantro and Red & Yellow Peppers …going to try my hand at canning small jars of Sofrito….we’ll see how that goes!

 

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.

 

Blue Moon…

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.
