Knitting Up A Storm!

Wednesday, February 07, 2007

I love adding new projects to my to knit next list, especially when I assign my stash yarn to the project! The great thing about blogs is seeing all the finished projects and I get such lovely ideas. For example:

  • I can use my Patons Kroy sock yarn in grey and blue for Endpaper Mitts
  • I can use my Bernat Berella for Fetching (yeah, it is arcylic, but who cares!)
  • I can use something, I am sure for Nautie

When will I find the time to knit these? How the hell do I know? But they are offically on the list and I'm using stash yarn baby!

My Wicked is not turning out so nice with 4.5mm needles, so I cast on using 4mm with a new ball to compare with the 4.5mm. Of course, I cast on more stitches to compensate for the smaller needles, so I've crossed my fingers one of the two works out. I have been knitting for exactly 4 years now, and find that I want my finished projects to turn out nice, not just okay. So if it takes a few tries, it is SO worth it at the end of the day.

Have a good one folks!
