On the Needles - November 21, 2014

I hope your needles have been more productive than mine this week!

I hit a little glitch in the making of the Hedgehog Mittens....

A little large, wouldn't you say?  LOL!!!

Oh well, I guess I'll be starting this one all over!  These little quills are the dickens to stitch though .....

..... so I hate to just rip them out, but it appears I'm going to have to.  I'll be seeing my granddaughter next week, so I'll measure her hand and figure out how many stitches I need to take out in order to make my next effort fit her :)  No way they'll be done for Christmas, but hopefully before the end of winter.

The Haus of Yarn bus came to Lebanon last weekend, and I couldn't wait to wear my Diagonal Cowl to show Meg!

Of course she loved it!  And she told me that the pattern for this cowl is in Ravelry HERE.  It is called the Ombre Infinity, designed by Cynthia Parker.  I guess I'll have to start calling it by this more sophisticated name, huh?

I couldn't resist looking to see if she still had some of the Wonderland Yarns Mad Hatter kits.  To my dismay, I saw that these are almost gone!  So although I had not planned to buy anything, I decided to pick up a couple of the kits before they disappear for good.  I love making this cowl and these kits make it so easy!

The aquas and purples on the left are SO ME!!!  And I just couldn't put down the beachy colors on the right - perfect for spring, right?

I started this one right away -

......these luscious greens will be so pretty on our daughter, Renee :)

This cowl is so easy, it is the perfect "go with" project when you have errands to run.

As you can see, I enjoyed some quality stitching time while waiting for my car to have it's oil changed and tires rotated :)

I've had a few requests for more of the cotton dishcloths, so I've started whipping up a few of those as well......

All in all, I've been knitting, but not accomplishing a whole lot!  What about you?  What's on your needles?  Check out all the "needle-y" fun going on at Judy's Patchwork Times today!!!

Hugs & Blessings!


  1. Love your cowl and the colors of the two kits are wonderful. I am envious of your knitting skills. I think I have a dishcloth that I was working on last winter. :D

  2. Your cowl is gorgeous... love your new yarn, too! And you can't beat the handmade dish cloths. I need to make some for myself. Happy Knitting!

  3. Gorgeous cowl, and I love both of the new mini-skein kits you picked up! Yummy, yummy. The mitts look really fascinating, so sorry that you have to rip them out and start over - hate when that happens.

  4. That cowl is so gorgeous! Knitting is a great thing to do while waiting for your car.

  5. That stitch you are having to unravel looks complicated. Sorry it needs redoing!
    All of the lovely, colorful stuff on this post leaves my mouth watering. You do know how to pick pretty combinations. Yes, those two yarn kits are beautiful!!

  6. You are so talented to be able to make works of art with your hands like that! Your oil change place looks pretty fancy shmancy there Teresa! LOL

  7. Perfect weather to playing with yarn. Love your projects.

  8. Love your cowl. What yummy yarn.

  9. love the buables and the cowl you have such yummy yarns!!

  10. Looks to me like you've done a lot of knitting! That's a pretty cowl; I just got it but it won't print. Weird, eh? Thanks for the link though. You are right, those little quills are very fiddly, but the results are fun. Are you sure those will be too small? I don't think you want them too tight...... I love that Wonderland Yarns, too. Very fun. That's a great dishcloth pattern, too, and a fun knit as well. Have your tried the Almost Lost Washcloth? It's fun and fast.

  11. Your cowl is so pretty. I would be anxious to wear it too., Sorry the hedgehog mittens are causing you problems. I would hate to rip out so much work. You have a lot of projects going on. Ooooh the MadHatters knit kits are definitely our colors! Can't wait to see what you do with them.
