On the Needles, Friday Nov. 21, 2014

I'm making slow progress on my sweater. I have to pay close attention to the pattern, so I usually only knit on this in the mornings when it's quiet and I can concentrate.

Still working on the same pair of socks. The first sock is finished , another 30 rows and I will be ready to start the toe on sock #2.

I'm also working on a quick infinity scarf to give as a gift. I was hoping to have it finished before this post, but didn't quite make it. The yarn is Patons Divine, and I have had it in my stash since 2005!

I just got a couple of cross stitch pieces back from the framer. I had a hard time trying to get a decent picture of them.

On the Needles, Friday Nov. 07, 2014

Lots of knitting going on lately. First up is mittens.....lots of mittens. The picture just shows a few pairs. I'm trying to use up old acrylic yarn, but no matter how many pairs I knit, the stash doesn't seem to get any smaller.
I also started a sweater, for me. The yarn is Berroco Ultra Alpaca in a color called Steel Cut Oats. The pattern is Persistence is Key. It is slow going, but will be really pretty when it's done.

Always on the needles is at least one pair of socks.
