Knitting Break!

You all have been working hard at reading Cleaning My Craft Room Parts I and II, so I thought you deserved a break–a knitting break. 

Here are some things I have been working on lately. 

First, I am knitting this shawl for my mom’s prayer shawl group. It’s almost 2/3 done and it is taking forever. It’s a fun, easy knit though, so I work on it when I need a break from other things.

After over a  year’s hiatus, I have started knitting washcloths again. Here’s one using a tried and true pattern I created. I’d never put these colors together before, but I think they work ok. I’m planning on taking out a few rows at the top and redoing them because I’m not loving the flat space the pattern made. It’ll be a quick fix. Then I’ll weave in the ends and call it done.

A third project I’ve been knitting is a unique scarf. It’s knit in the round as a long tube so that it’s double-layered. The veriguated (multi-colored) skein of Caron Simply Soft’s colorway Rainbow Bright. I’m mixing in stripes of the same yarn–Caron Simply Soft–only in solid colors left over from other projects. It’s a lot of fun seeing how the colors look together.

I hope this knitting break has got you relaxed and ready to start (reading about) cleaning again. If not, though, it may be a time for a coonhound break!

Here’s my sunbathing beauty Scarlet.

Peace Out (and In),

    I appreciate acknowledging and allowing taking a break from things. Sleepy dog pictures are just icing.

    You are being so creative this summer in your knitting projects and in your cleaning and organizing. Love the picture of Scarlet taking a break!

      Thanks for the compliments! I will try to soak them in!
