On the Needles Friday

Wow I have been so busy!!!  I haven't done much sewing lately, but I have been knitting.
I was working on the Irish Hiking Scarf.  It is folded up in this picture, but I think I will knit another 12' or so and it will be done.  I think the yarn is Cascade 220.

I got distracted and started working on the All Sorts yarn by Neeleyknits.  I have not knitted with self striping yarn like this before, and it is really fun.  She included a companion skein of gray for the toes, heels, and cuffs.  I want to finish by Tuesday.  I knitted the heel last night.  Hopefully I can work on it this weekend.

Sea Life Quilt

Last Friday I had the honor to present my Sea Life quilt to Dr. Kathryn Sullivan at NOAA HQ.  She was so excited about the quilt and found the perfect spot to hang it, right next to her desk!

A Finish for Friday!

Done!  My Easy Fold Poncho in Mad Tosh DK "Steam Trunk" is finished!  I still have some ends to weave in, but it is done. This was my Camp Loopy #3 project.  I actually finished all three Camp Loopy knitting projects, but only the first sewing project.  Just a little too ambitious!
I need to watch the Mattress Stitch video and re-stitch the side, but that will take about 5 minutes.  My stitching looks puckery.

I also started working on a Christmas present for my SIL.  It is the Irish Hiking Scarf in Cascade 220 Aran.  I am enjoying the cables so far.
I am so excited---Labor Day Weekend!!!  Woohoo!!  We get off a couple of hours early today so I can get some errands run.  Ready for a three day weekend!!

Knit, Knit, Knit part 2

I have been knitting away on my Easy Folded Poncho.  I have less than 10" left to knit, and I have really tried to slide in a quick row or two in the evenings.  I hope I can just sit and knit a few hours this weekend so I can finish.

In the meantime, here it is:

Excuse the messy porch.  Life has been crazy for Crazy Sue!  Have a great Friday!!

Finally Friday!

Wow!  I have been gone so much lately!  I did get quite a lot of knitting accomplished.
I finished my Surrounding Tank and wore it to work Monday.  I really like it!!  This was my Camp Loopy #2 project and I actually finished on time-barely!

I also finished my Flatrock Socks and am about halfway finished with my Easy Folded Poncho.  See if I can get the pics to post:  Sometimes blogger will not let me post multiple pics.

Aha!  Maybe I have cracked the mysterious blogger code!  Have a great weekend!!

Knit knit knit...

I have been knitting quite a bit this week but it does not look like I made much progress.  I am in the home stretch of the Surrounding Tank---I think I have 7 inches to go on the torso of the sweater.  I keep telling myself, "Just keep knitting. Knit. Knit. Knit."  I really want to finish by Thursday since this is my Camp Loopy project number two, which needs to be finished by the end of the month.
Please tell me it looks like I have made some progress since last week!  The yarn is Shibui Knits Linen.  Knit, knit, knit, knit.....

Finally! Friday Needles Report

Whew!  I was on travel last week!  I spent a total of 4 days in airports, which makes for some great knitting time.  I have been working on my Surrounding Tank.  I hope it fits.  I am in love.  I have finished the neck, am past the arm holes, and now just knitting the torso.
Can't wait to see what everyone else is knitting.
