Down the street on a fine summer day

Finished two wash clothes

Finished another two

What am I going to do with all this left over cotton? Time to start a scrap blanket


I have a dentist appointment today. I broke a tooth and it's going to get fixed. Usually I have my knitting with me to help pass the time, but today I forgot it. In the mad dash to get out the door on time, I left it sitting on the coffee table. I guess I'll need to kill zombies. Sorry sock, you missed out.

It's a Sweater

I've got a couple of inches to knit on the Captain America sweater before I start the star. I've got some math that needs to happen, because this sweater is a bit larger then the pattern.

In the mean time, there are some things I need to do:
  • Figure out where to center the star. It needs to be above a red column
  • Where to put the sleeves
  • I haven't looked to see how many stitches the star is, so I'm kinda making trouble for myself

The Eldest, who I'm making the sweater for, want it to be a hoodie. I'm thinking I've never done a hood before and I really don't want to do it, so you're getting a crew sweater. Deal with it. But part of me is going, you can do the hood, it's not a big deal. Well, you've seen what the other half of me says. So I'm torn.

I can't wait until it's cool enough to knit on this project.

Down the street on a sunny day

Finished another washcloth. It's too hot to knit with wool or acrylic, so cotton it is. The past couple of days have been a bit cooler, but still on the warm side.

Started a new washcloth. Perky's in-laws like the knitted washcloths for Christmas, figure it doesn't hurt to have them on hand. (She'd better get knitting on some also.)

I lost my cable needle (somewhere in the house) and bought a new one. (The blue one.) Decided I hated it and had to find my regular cable needle on line. After posting to Ravelry asking what's it's called. Now I've got a name. Or you can check out Knit Picks tool.

Stay cool out there.

It's been a while since I've posted. It's too hot to knit currently, so here is a run down of what I'm working on when I can.
