On the Needles Friday

TGIF!  I have several knitting projects going at once, as usual.

I'm working the crown decreases with this Monster hat, in Noro Kureyon.  I have never used Noro before, and I am enjoying the color changes.  I keep a knitting project in my desk for conference calls and brain breaks.

Current sock in progress is also Noro.  It was half price at The French Knot in Diamondhead.  Score!  I like the colors, but I am worried about the thick and thin spots in the sock.  I hope the thin places will not break during normal wear.

Fingerless mitts for Kevin.  I have knitted the thumb, and am ready to start the fingers.  I was a little puzzled, so I stopped before I knitted myself into a hair ball.  Yarn is Cascade 220 Superwash.


  1. Beautiful yarn for your hat and socks. I have never seen Noro at my store. Will have to investigate, The colors are so pretty.

  2. I have seen moro but now I will have to get some looks wonderful what size needles for the fingerless mitts I need to make some for my guys with leftover cascade 220 yarn

  3. Great projects. I am most interested in the fingerless gloves. I have wanted to make some but am unsure about how difficult they are. Do you make separate holes for the fingers?

  4. Fun projects! Noro has such great colors.
