Basically the project that I've fallen in love with most recently, whatever it is! I've been trying to only work on projects that I really love in fibers that I adore.

OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.

Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.

I do like making socks but I am in a shawl mood right now. I have at three at the moment on the needles. Two are just regular knit shawls and the other is a lace. I love knitting lace but it does kill my hands. So that one is the one taking the longest right now.
Happy Knitting


I am memere on Ravelry

Anything I don't have to sew together! Love to do scarves, baby blankets, and especially the log cabin blankets.

Addicted to knitting...

I have two projects that I love to knit. Hats used to be my primary source of knitting, I'd have one on the needles at all times. I used to make up my own designs. Now it's socks. Any yarn that I can find thin enough in my stash gets made into socks. Plain knit socks, socks with cables, socks with lace... Any way I can get them made without the monotony of plain stockinette.

Well. Being that I am very new to knitting- I would have to say dishcloths- and I have knit many-they are quick and finished in no time. I like to crochet and have knit a couple of baby blankets- getting ready to start a new one for the Linus project. Tried a sweater-would love to be able to knit one-but after the frustration of tearing it out several times and cursing from here to Maine I have given up on that idea for now. I have some yarn I would like to use for a scarf. Do any of you have a quick and easy pattern for a scarf? The yarn is blue - worsted weight- for a teenage boy-maybe girl.

Helmetliners for the troops. I also like the idea of someone wearing one of mine & knowing that people back home truly care. A bit of a hug.

I also like to knit little fishies for my tessellating fish afghan.

Interesting question.......for a fast satisfying project, I'd say Fiber Trends clogs are my fav. I like socks, but by the end of a pair I say I won't do any for a long time. Then, before I know it, I'm making more. Baby clothes are fun because they're quick and use a relatively small amt. of yarn. Sometimes I just want something to do so I make up a dishcloth. I guess it depends of my mood and the purpose of the knit. Not too thrilled with seaming, but I've made sweaters.
Pretty much, I've done it all.
