Hey there Mulder! Nice job! Your knitting is beautiful! Waay to go...and stay in touch! Post photos of WIP's to encourage us! Sometimes a project takes so long to finish...so post photos as you go along! xxx
Hey there Toby! I think US 4 needles would be too small. I now rememb er I knit a baby kimono and blankets about 2 years ago...and used US 8. The stitch was garter.. .but no matter...I think our basketweave baby blanket will do great with US 8. Glad you have Addis and CP's on hand. I love to use KPO's...but not for splitty yarns. Aaargh.
Hi BostonBecca! WELCOME TO STASHIES! Whatever you ordered or committed to prior to joining our STASH TRAIN...is OK!
Well I finally caved in a used my NEW YARN REWARD this afternoon.
I had to order it...the shop didn't have 16 skeins in my red. BUT...I do have a cardigan pattern all set for it! I will swatch tonight, get my notes in order...and maybe allow myself to start the BACK!
I don't mind having two or three OTN projects going...especially if they are very different. For example, the Red Aran Afghan I am working on is waaaaay too cumbersome to take to knitting club, or knitting w/ friends. It has to stay home. Besides, I may a huge error on the bobbles last night when the Oscars were on. Had to frog two rows, and was fortunate to get all the stitches sorted out. 242 stitches on the row!
I have a perfectly mindless pullover OTN for when I go out. I hate the yarn...but am determined to get it done by next Fall. Usually, I finish a pullover or cardigan in 2 weeks, from the 'cast on' to the 'wearing it out the door'.
Will work on the Crazy Quilt Squares Afghan for my granddaughter this spring/summer...we have 5 weeks at our mountain property...1 in May, June, July, August, Oct. So...knitting the 7"x7" squares will be perfect for sitting in the sun with mountain breezes brushing by!
I will try to finish the Red Aran Afghan within this week...
Will begin the cardigan 'cast on' as my Reward! The yarn is Cloud 9 by Cascade. 50% wool/50%angora. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
