Knitting Update


This is a little something I’ve been working on for our first knit-along at Stash. You can read more about the project here.

I’ve been missing this space a bit lately.  One explanation for my absence is that I have been devoting a good part of my blogging energy toward the Stash blog, Pintrest, and Facebook pages.  Another reason is that I am so very tired.  PB is going through a bit of a sleep challenge right now, fighting going to sleep some nights and waking up around 4:30 every morning. Keeping her up later doesn’t seem to make a difference.  I wouldn’t mind your suggestions; we’re all exhausted and looking for help!

In knitting news….

I’ve had a little bit of the knitting ADD this month, and before finishing this hat I had 5 projects on the needles.  That’s a lot for me, even if one of them is in deep hibernation!  I’m part process knitter and a larger part product knitter, and I had been itching to finish something!  This would have been a quick hat, but the nature of knitting at work is that it only gets attention for small bits of time, a few stitches here and there.

As for my at home knitting, I’m almost to the armhole divide on the Hooray Cardigan despite not having really knit on it in over a week.  The Hitchiker Shawl I started has been coming along steadily, and I am starting to see the end.  All the soothing garter stitch, with something interesting at the beginning of each row, is perfect for end of the day tv watching while on the couch knitting.  The Slable Hat I started in December has moved out of short-term hibernation and back to Stash where it will be my work knitting until it’s finished up.

How about you?  What are you knitting?  Is anything a real slog?  I’d love to finish up my long-languishing sock club socks.  I hear the Doubleknit Twins are doing a finish, frog, or slog-along this year, so I think that might help motivate me to finish up that second sock!
