The Never Ending Knitting


I thought I'd share the project that's been taking up most of my knitting time these days.  Eventually it's going to be a lovely, amazing scarf/stole thing, but in the meantime, it's tons and tons of fiddly lace knitting.  Not that I mind, but I'm halfway through the central pattern and then there are two more large pattern pieces for both sides of the shawl that I'll have to do.  Hence, the never ending. 

I did finally come to terms with this and cast on for a pair of fingerless gloves I've been craving for ages.  I'm using Plucky "Mallard" and ShibuKnits brown.  The Shibu yarn is a bit thinner than the Plucky MCN, but I think it'll be ok.  I also decided to actually use the needles suggested, given my discovery that I knit less loosely when doing colorwork than when working with one color alone.  It seems to be working (and also seems to be knitting up so quickly!) so I'm feeling good about it at the moment.

I am anticipating a lot of baby knits in the near future, so if anyone has a blanket or other item that's been a particular hit, I'd love to hear about it.  (or be reminded, if it's already on the blog.)  The umbilical cord hat is definitely on the list, as soon as I can find my SNB.

I am knitting another one of these baby blankets for a friend, and I really enjoy it the second time around!

Wamps, did you get knocked up with quints?

I vote for a simple baby blanket in bright colors like Val's. Apparently, Andrea gets a lot of compliments on this one (http://southsideknitting.blogspot.com/2010/01/things-that-i-have-actually-finished.html), which is along the same lines.

I guess I never blogged it, but I knit a February Baby Sweater which was super addictive to knit and looks real cute on the Maggie. Also, good way to use up some sock yarn. Not that you'd ever have any extra lying about...
