On the Needles - Jan 10,2014

I still have all of the same stuff on the needles. I have been knitting and knitting and knitting but don't seem like I am getting anywhere. I think that is because I keep casting on and for me that is a no-no. I just need to keep a few things going not a hundred.

I am almost half way done with my Racing Raindrops Loopy Ewe challenge scarf. Of course I have been saying that for almost a week. I will get to the half way point one of these days, hopefully this weekend.

Racing Raindrops - I only have 4 more repeats (24 rows) then I am half way done. I know the other half will go quicker since I will be decreasing. Or at least I can hope it will.

This is a the first of a pair of socks in the plain Jane style following the Yarn Harlot's guide.. I am using Springtime from Knit Picks.  First time I have used such small needles, and they are my new Karbonz, so it seems to take forever to do the ribbing. These will become my church socks. The other one I cast on for this purpose are going to be short socks so they will be my stay at home and knit socks. Let's see how long they take me to finish.

For more goodies head on over to Judy's.


  1. I really like the scarf you are knitting. Someone else is knitting that scarf this week, too. It's on my list! Your sock yarn is such a pretty color.

  2. I really like using KnitPicks yarn because it is so affordable. Racing Raindrops is on Ravelry?

  3. It is a paid pattern on Ravelry form Churchhouse (I think). It is affordable and I bought these when I first started stashing so I figured I better use them.

  4. I love the KnitPicks Springtime! It is bright and cheery and fits its name so well!
