Off the Hook and On the Needle

So I started another project. This is out of character for me because I never have more than two WIPs.  But, due to the yarn diet, I can't help it.  When yarn runs out, I run to another project.  This time, it's a knitting project and it's for me.  It had been so long since the last knit that it took forever to remember how to cast on, but I finally got something arranged and I moved on.  (I was out of town and no where near a computer at the time.)  The project is 50% done and I couldn't be happier.  I'm using a super chunky yarn so naturally it's moving along faster, but I'm proud that  my stitches have improved.  Too bad I can't fix that cast-on row, but that's okay.  I hope to be finished shortly.

Yes, I'm still crocheting the blanket.  Surprisingly the yarn still hasn't run out, but I see the purple nearing it's end.  Since it's the first color in each new section and used the most, I've been almost holding my breath and then getting all giddy when there's enough to keep going because I know then that I can finish that entire section.  I probably look ridiculous doing so or even talking about it, but interestingly enough it doesn't matter because anybody reading this post understands.  lol



  1. way to go! I can't even tell you how many WIPS I have going right now. Both of yours look great so far.

  2. I love how the blanket is coming along. Love all the colors! I also love the green you are knitting with. Can't wait to see it when you are finished with it.

    I can imagine you getting all excited about having enough yarn to finish a section. I do it all the time. :)


  3. Yummy green that one on your needles! Casting on is still one of my problems too but I hope it's something that gets better the more you try.

    That silly feeling about having enough yarn to finish a row sounds familiar. Doesn't feel great when you make it? ;-)

  4. Yes, we totally understand and I bet we have all experienced that!

  5. The colors on your blanket are really wonderful.
