Your wish is my command!


You are probably wondering if I'm getting close to finishing all my squares for the Pine Street Inn Knit-a-thon. Well I have added a few to my pile. Total count so far is 24 squares. I need 35 to complete a blanket and I so want to reach my goal. With 7 days left to knit eleven more squares...I'll be sure and do my best.

I'm should I would have, should have had more done by now but I had a request from my college freshman son: a hand knit hat! How could I refuse a request like that. My needles knit as fast as I could possibly knit and I had the hat ready for him in less than a week. He was pleased with it and hopefully it will keep his head and ears warm on his early morning walks to his classes. I used my favorite hat pattern and some Paton's Classic Wool, by the way:
Fig and Plum's Cashmere Ribbed Hat

Now I had better get away from this computer and get going knitting the rest of the squares! Next Sunday is the big event at the Massachusetts State House...can't wait :)

Until next time...happy knitting :)

More squares!

I've knitted a few more squares for the Pine Street Knit-a-thon. I now have a total of 15 squares knitted. Thirty-five squares makes a blanket, so I have a ways to go. I'm hoping I can make 35 squares this year...we'll see. I have 28 more days to go. Sure hope I can do it!

My pile is growing bigger and bigger.

...and I've been thinking of Christmas....Christmas knitting! My daughter-in-law has given me her knit list, which is a wish list of knitted items. Am I blessed or what? She loves and appreciates everything I knit for her. Can't wait to get started on her list, but first things first...

Hope everyone is enjoying lots of happy knitting :)
