Needles Report: Catching up!

Wow has it been extra crazy busy for me lately!

I had an EPIC long weekend trip to New York City with my running friends.  We really went 100 mph for three days.  Would you expect anything less from 6 marathon/triathlon Ironman finishers?? It was very cold and blustery in NYC, so I was able to give my hand knits some much needed love and wear.

This is me all wrapped up on the Brooklyn Bridge.

I did finish the mittens in time for the trip--thank goodness--I wore them the whole time!

I finally finished the Irish Hiking Scarf.  I just kept knitting and knitting and knitting.  I finally said Enough!
This is the beginning of it, The finished scarf was longer.  Much much much longer. I used Malabrigo Mechita (DK).  I love that yarn, but I probably should have used something thicker.

I made a quick Turn a Square Hat (Jared Flood's pattern) for DS2 out of school colors.  I knitted it in a record three days!  Just knitting in the evenings and in the car a bit.  I have already cast on the next one.  Kevin tried it on and it is a nice, close fitting beanie style.  I think he will like it. I've already cast on another one.
It is currently modeled by my Honda.  Better pic to follow. ;)

What's on your needles??


  1. Wonderful finishes and just in time for the cold NYC weather.

  2. It looks cold there but you look cozy warm! Fantastic finishes

  3. All your finishes are wonderful and will feel great this winter. I have some hats on my to do list, but I'm hooked on socks right now.
