On the Needles 6/29/12

What’s on my needles you ask??? Well there’s a lot on my needles right now

I’m perpetually working on my Sock Yarn Blanket…So far I have 518 squares finished.  So I am officially past the halfway point – this will be 1006 squares when it’s finished

I’m also working on Skew Socks after taking a class at Cloverhill Yarn Shop in Catonsville, MD.  The class has gotten me to the heel of the first sock and I am very happy with the result so far.


I also cast on Camp Loopy project 2 yesterday.  I’m doing the Stripe Study Shawl using Dragonfly Fibers Djinni Sock yarn in the Water Sprite & Poseidon colorways.  The challenge this round is to knit something using at least 800 yards of yarn as well as at least 1 color from your nation’s flag (There’s a little blue in the yarns).


And here’s Little Loopy hanging out with the yarns in my nifty Loopy Ewe Camp Loopy Project Bag.


I also managed to turn on my sewing machine this past week and whipped up a lunch tote for one of my employees that left our company to pursue another opportunity.  She loves the bag!  YAY!


Now, hop on over to Judy’s blog to see what everyone else is working on this week….

Your sock yarn blanket is great. I don't think I have enough sock yarn leftovers to attempt one - at least not yet.
Your shawl and sock look great as well.

I am intrigued by your sock yarn quilt. I tried to blow up the photo with no luck. I have been wondering what to do with my last over yarn-maybe????

The skewed socks also look neat. What is the name of the pattern?

I agree about the sock yarn blanket- we need a close up! Pretty please :)

Your sock yarn blanket is amazing. I enjoy Camp Loopy challenges too - your stripe study is looking good.

I also like your sock yarn blanket. My question is: are you knitting it from scrapes from sock you have made?
