It is monday again, which means another Project of the Week Post! well for this week, I will tell you about the three projects I have in the works, so it is more of a Projects of the Week post.
This week I have been working on hats using Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in Dark Orchid. I have the infinity scarf I have been working on using Lion Brand Jiffy Yarn in True Red as my purse project for when I get to work early, or get somewhere early, and I have a tube scarf (aka my knitting in the round project) in the works, using Deborah Norville Collection Serenity Garden Yarn in Gems.
I am still working on hats because I still have quite a bit of smaller skeins, baby yarn, and partial skeins of yarn that wouldn’t make a sweater or go with something I have, and I really don’t want to buy more yarn for sweaters, or other projects to be donated since I have so much around here as it is. I am trying to get as much of this yarn used up as I can before buying any more yarn for projects for kids in need.
I am working to get my infinity scarf done in the next month, before the Christmas events get into full swing. The tube scarf I am making is for practicing knitting in the round, so that I can get more comfortable with it before I try knitting socks again.
For work I use a knitting machine, but I prefer hand knitting, and it is more relaxing, and I enjoy doing it in my free time. I have been knitting with knitting needles for so long that it is second nature to me now, and for the most part, (other than knitting in the round or doing a more complex knit pattern), I can knit by feel, and I don’t have to be looking at it all the time.
