Knitting 

I used to knit a bit. But I haven’t done any more than a few dishcloths for the last several years. Now that I finished hand quilting that last little vintage top, I thought I would see if I can still do this. This is my carry around knitting basket.

And this is what’s inside. My favorite mitten pattern, stitch markers, a stitch counter, and my double pointed needles.

Even though I haven’t been knitting, I still have two boxes like this of yarn! I plan to make some mittens out of these.

I only knit small things like socks, mittens, and dish cloths. We will see how much my carpal tunnel will allow.

Have a great day!

  1. I knit just a tiny bit, but have never tackled mittens (or socks). All those needles intimidate me a bit. I can only handle two at a time! Haha. Looking forward to seeing what you make.

  2. i’m knitter wanna-be just like you! I knit small stuff, too, but always envy those who knit bigger stuff… I guess it’s just that a sewing machine goes so much faster! can you share where you got your mitten pattern?

    I usually knit every winter but having just gotten a long-arm machine, I’m struggling to make time for knitting at all right now. I do mittens, hats and scarves, love socks but they still pose a bit of a struggle for me. I could probably get better but quilting just takes more of my attention! I do love that I can take knitting with me anywhere, and it’s so relaxing!

    Have you heard of http://www.knittedknockers.org ? They are a volunteer organization that knitts prostheses for women who have had a mastectomy. I have been knitting for them for about 6 months. You can knit one knocker in about 3 hours ( a good way to do something productive when watching TV). Check out their website. They have a list of approved yarns (very soft cotton that stays soft after many washings). Once you knit them, you can send them to their headquarters in WA and they will stuff them and send then to the recipients.

    It looks more complicated than it is. You only use two needles at a time. Check out a youtube video to see how it is done.

    Knitting fingerless gloves is quick, easy and they work so well when shopping…no need to remove (and lose) when paying, writing or looking through your purse.
