my poor neglected knitting blog

Here is an update on my knitting projects. I’ve been doing a bit of knitting but really the de-cluttering has taken over. So… pictures!

bunny nugget

I made this and N claimed it. The pattern is called “bunny nugget” and N named her Bluebell, which I think is insanely cute.

the tiny scarf is slightly less tiny

I was having some shoulder pain from knitting so I decided to start a crochet scarf just like Kristi made. The yarn is so soft and I love the color.

destined to be ripped out

I started Kiama, from a Berroco book, hoping for a quick, simple project. But I hate it and am going to rip it out.

just needs sleeves

Slinky Ribs needs sleeves but I’m also worried about the flippiness of the hem so I’ve been avoiding picking up the stitches for the sleeves. I could block it to try to fix the hem, but I just haven’t yet.

There you go, that’s where my knitting stands right now. Back to cleaning out the closets!

    I really like Kiama, actually. It really suits you!

      Kiama is the orange one that is barely anything. The one I’m wearing in the picture is Slinky Ribs. Thank you, though! Other than the flippy hem, I’m pleased with how it is turning out so far. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aah, sorry-my bad! I read it wrong. Yes, I think it will definitely benefit from blocking, I love how slimming the rib is. And the colour looks great!

      Thanks again! I am really liking the yarn, it’s the recycled silk/cotton/linen blend from Rowan.

    Slinky ribs is the best pattern – it looks so great on everyone. I must make it. Moving it up the queue…

      I am pleased with mine! And if you don’t let it sit for months on end, I think it’s a pretty fast knit. I am determined to put sleeves on mine before the weather is actually right for wearing it. ๐Ÿ™‚
