Knit Along...


Since this was both a productive reading and knitting week I though I would join in with Ginny for the knit along. I am still working on my star afghan baby blanket and think it might turn into my big slow going project for this fall as I work on smaller knitting projects from time to time. My goal is to finish it completely by the end of October. We will see though. You all can hold me accountable and remind me come Halloween time how it's going;)
I also knit a few washcloths from a fun pattern I found on Ravelry. I got on a deep cleaning kick and got the urge to knit up half a dozen or so washcloths for the kitchen to replace the nasty old raggy ones we have now. Plus I have a ton of cotton yarn in my stash.
I also started knitting fingerless mittens for toddlers to sell on my Etsy shop and in local childrens stores. They did so well last year I knit over 60 pairs and sold every one. I had planned to start knitting them in July so I would be stocked up for fall/winter, but know how that goes.
I am currently on the last chapter of a book I found at a thrift store called Icy Sparks by Gwyn Hyman Rubio. I think it is very well written and I have had a hard time putting it down. Honestly I was drawn to it because I liked the cover picture, but it was good :)
