Give or take

Baktus with eyelet edge in Sundara Sock “Cactus Flower”

I’ve been knitting. Finish one thing, start something new. Small things — a scarf, a hat, a pair of mitts. I’m working on what I’ve come to call The Family Project. That’s all I can tell you!

Foxgloves in Filatura di Crosa Zara

 There’s more.

Simple Ribbed Hat in Bijou Spun Himalayan Trail
Maine Morning Mitts in Sundara DK Merino the 2nd, “Lichen Over Slate”
Saroyan in Sundara Fingering Merino Cashmere “Ocean’s Edge”
Foxgloves in Briar Rose Cashmere, unnamed colorway

This represents much of my knitting from April through September, give or take a sock or two, and at least one scarf and hat. And there are other things on the needles or in my head, too! I’m not insane, just inspired.

Hitchhiker Scarf in Sundara DK Silky Cashmere, “Spring Fresh”

 I started this Hitchhiker scarf yesterday. Must keep moving.

With all this knitting going on, the set of Darn Pretty Interchangeable needles I got at the beginning of the year has turned out to be the best investment I’ve made in my knitting since, oh, my umbrella swift and ball winder back in 1978. They are absolutely worth the wait, and they really do have the best join I’ve worked with.

Rosemary Likes Knitting, Too

Oh, and I do still have my day job!

  2. Hi Jane! Catching up on my blog reading since we're now back from a few weeks at the cabin. I just love all the projects! Especially the color way of the first one, and the cowl! Oh my! I went right away and tried to download the PDF pattern for it but the web site won't let me get past the billing information. I'll try again. You've been very busy!!I noticed that you've not logged on yet to the new private blog. Did you have and trouble doing so?Keep up the lovely work! Rosemary looks so sweet!


  3. All so pretty! And you have me intrigued about those needles. (I am officially counting down to SEEING JANE IN PERSON OMG BBQ! I can't wait until Rhinebeck.)
