A Knitting Post

It's been awhile since I had a post about knitting.  That's because there hasn't been much knitting going on.

I did these dishcloths sometime in the spring:

new dishcloths

Good instant gratification knitting. I did most of them on a trip to visit family and they're all for me. The one that is second from the left was started and half finished during an 80 minute wait at the border crossing into the US.  It was just me and the three kids and it was the only thing that kept me from jumping off the bridge. Knitting is soothing.

Then I finished these:

handknit socks

I started them last September.  I finished one and had a couple of inches done on the second and completely lost interest. When I needed some mindless knitting for another road trip, I picked it up and am happy that they're finished. There is some serious ladder unattractiveness along the top of the foot, but still, I'm going to be happy with them. The yarn is hand-dyed and the colors are really amazing.  I will enjoy wearing these (in a few months).

And now I'm working on this:

Beginning of Rosamund's Cardigan

Rosamund's Cardigan from the Fall 2009 issue of Interweave Knits. I started it about three weeks ago and haven't spent a lot of time on it, but when I do, it moves pretty quickly and I'm enjoying the process.


  1. Great socks! I wish I knew how to knit. The sweater looks like it will be lovely. I just love beautifully knit sweaters!

  2. Hey Renee, great socks!!! Also thanks for mentioning the fact you sewed up Butterick 5212 on my site! I love your version!!! The fabric you picked was so pretty. Like you, I'm a little unsure about the back but will raise it a little and hope for the best. You're a great seamstress!!! I added you to my front page so I can keep up with your work much better (wink)!!! God Bless!
