WIP Wednesday: Knitting On

I have been spending my afternoons knitting and watching TV. We are nearly caught up on Outlander thanks to a free preview week from our cable company. The shawl is visibly larger and I’ve started the garter stitch section. The pattern calls for 8 rows but I’m going to just keep knitting until I feel like I’m at the point of having enough yarn to cast off and enough to knit a square for the blanket.

For anyone who is interested, The Loopy Ewe has made the announcement for Camp Loopy. This year we’re going to science camp. I’ve picked out my first project and ordered the yarn and beads. More about that once my yarn arrives.

How are your projects going? Have you got some new ones planned for the near future?

    I can’t wait to see your shawl finished. I love that you have a regular knitting camp. I did order yarn and a new pattern from Quince and Co for Mother’s Day. I will share soon.

    My knitting is knot, but then you’ve probably gleaned that from the lack of knitting on my blog posts! LOL. But I have 2 babies to knit for this year, so I will endeavor to get something on the needles. Now sewing/quilting, it’s taking over my world!!!

    My skin is so rough from all the hand washing that I can’t get my phone to recognize my fingerprint so knitting is pretty much out of the question.

    I am trying to cast on a toe-up sock using Judy’s magic cast on. I am kinda getting the hang of it, but I am working with a deep purple yarn on black dpns. I am trying it again while sitting outside. I don’t really watch tv except for an episode of Star Trek after dinner. I really like Voyager; more than I thought I would.

    • Have you checked out the videos on YouTube? I used one when I did Judy’s magic cast on. Also try a white towel in your lap. It makes it easier to see the dark stitches:)

        I learned the technique from a Bluprint class by Ann Budd. She does a great job explaining it. I think the true problem is the yarn I am using. Her sock was also knit with heavier yarn for demo purposes. I like the idea of putting a white towel on my lap. Thanks for the tip!

      • You told me about the white towel trick a few years ago, and it has made a huge difference. Thank you for that.

  7. Progress continues on sweater; I have so many projects lined up I don’t know what I’ll start next! Have a utilitarian sweater for me started, when I need a break from focusing on blue, and a pair of socks for my sister, which is probably next. Small and cooler to work on for summer knitting.
