On The Needles 5/24/13

I am a slow knitter, very slow, and I don't knit all of the time. So, my projects are on the needles for a mighty long time.

I have been working on and off on this sock since Judy posted the pooling challenge. As you may be able to tell my sock didn't pool and I won't be done in time. It's all good though. I hope to finish this one sock before June 1st.

I did sign up for the Loopy Ewe's Camp Loopy. I just hope that I can make it through the first month then I can go from there.

I call this my Antarctic Sock. Love the colors and when I finally get the pair done I will love to wear them come winter.

My Camp Loopy loot. I will be using the pink (which is brighter than it appears in person) to make a summer scarf/wrap. My pattern is Meditation Infinity Scarf. I had to find something simple since I am still a novice at this knitting. I do have to learn a provisional cast on but it looks simple enough.
Now I am off to do some cleaning (maybe) and some sewing. I have a long weekend so maybe, just maybe I can get some things done.
For more on the needles head on over to Judy's.


  1. I'm glad you decided to do Camp Loopy. I'm doing a pair of socks. I'm using a dark green blend yarn! Two of the Grandsons are doing socks too. The girls are making scarfs!
    I'll be glad to get back to my quilting! Late summer is a long way off. So I may as well knit! Momma B

    1. Lol. I needed something different. I have a bunch of socks to do and they take me forever. So a scarf it is. Hope you are starting to feel better though. Can't you do any handwork.

    2. I can knit for about an hour a day. Then my hands start hurting. Until the swelling in my neck and spine is gone, this is the newest norm. Better than being that way all the time like I was before surgery.
      I'm knitting these socks for one of the Granddaughters. Depends who likes the color! Momma B
