I'm Finally Making the HRB

Hemlock Ring Blanket by Jared Flood
Craft Knitting
Made for me
Size til I'm done

Needle and yarn
US 8 - 5.0 mm
Cestari Special Cotton Blend
609.0 yards in stash
Colorway Denim

I did the center part of the pattern for a hat not too long ago.

I’m trying to work from already caked stash, so I’m starting this in the denim. I plan on going until I can’t stand it any longer, as I have plenty of colors that will go with this.

I usually don’t like yarn that is a majority of cotton, but this is soft and comfortable to work with.
I’m magic looping at the beginning and having no trouble with it at all.

Wanting to Blog more

I was hanging out with the TSR crew yesterday for socialknitworking for KIP day - and I realized I really wanted to use this more.

Of course, now that I've entered two projects onto my Ravelry page I'm all done with explaining myself.

Citon is finished, with the exception of weaving in ends and finishing fixing a dropped stitch.

I have half of my brother's birthday present done.

I have socks started, cute little turkish bed socks.

I have Traveling Woman to finish - I'm so close I need to just bite the bullet.

I have dyeing to do - both for myself and for a blankie swap.

I have a sk of Anne that is caked that I have no idea what to do with it. Shawl I guess. Maybe I should trade it. Maybe I can trade it for another color, since the problem I'm having with this is the color!

It's been a while

I had claimed some boomerang quite some time ago, and it was already caked. My knitting ‘rules’ this year include knitting from my 10 in 2010 list, gift knitting (which should use that list or already caked yarn if possible), or knitting with caked yarn.

I’m making an entrelac scarf. I have no reason to make it except I wanted some ‘brainless’ knitting and I was getting a wee bit bored with my Ten Stitch Twist Blanket - which isn’t on my list but is my brother’s birthday present as a foot stool cushion.

Today is part one of knit in public day - I hope to make some progress on my traveling woman shawl, so I can finally cast on Garden of Alla - which I bought yarn for at MDSW
