On (and Off) the Needles–November 23rd

It’s been a pretty productive week for knitting.  Who knew that being off work all week could make me finish things LOL

I finally finished the test knit shawl I’ve been working on.  I still need to put on the hook and eye closures and get some better pictures, but it is off the needles.  WOW icord binding and edging takes a LONG time on a HUGE shawl!


I also decided that I didn’t like how the stripes were looking on the scarf I started last week, so I ripped it out and switched to a hat using the Ravens yarn.  Love how the hat turned out!  And it only took 2 days to knit.


Since I really do like the scarf pattern, I decided to start it using a different yarn that has a wider self striping pattern.  It’s looking pretty good so far and it will wind up as a Christmas gift for someone (just haven’t decided who yet).


Hop on over to Judy L’s Blog to see what’s on everyone else’s needles!

I like the neat, precise rows in the scarf that you have started, and I love the colors in the shawl. I'm thinking the yarn you used for the hat would make great socks, do you remember what it is?

I agree your hat is great looking. It would look with my winter coat. If you can knit that in 2 days, maybe I'd better do hats instead of learning to do socks? 2 days is much faster than 3 years!

Love your projects - scarf is looking great - like how it is striping.
