what’s on my needles…

Back in March I had Covid and, confined to barracks, I started a cable knit in a very dark navy. Sadly I have no progress to share on this because I have given up๐Ÿ˜ the colour was just so tough on my eyes.

However, I am working on a summer cotton knit.

It’s a combo of stocking stitch and moss stitch and I am using a cotton aran by Paintbox yarns on 4.5 needles.

What’s on your needles?

Woolly wishes,

  1. That’s a lovely shade of blue and that too is coming along very nicely. I have a ginormous blanket on my needles (thanks to my mum ๐Ÿ˜†). I’m planning to knit a summer top too – possibly a little strappy number for the super days.

  2. I look forward to seeing the finished sweater! I’m working on a wool cabled sweater for a cousin, and a pair of socks; I’m hoping I can get the sweater done before it’s too hot to have a pile of wool on my lap, and I can pick up the socks when the sweater stalls out.

  3. Just glad to SEE you are back to knitting! Have two knit baby blankets going, one almost finished. One crocheted baby blanket variation on a Granny Square that I’m sewing up. I usually have 3+ projects going – keeps me from getting bored with just one thing.

      1. The good thing about knitting for charities? I can knit whatever I want & donate it – people give me free yarn all the time so I get to do what I love and then GIVE IT AWAY! WIN/WIN!


  4. I have a hard time working with dark colors too, probably more so with fabric than with yarn. I wonder why that is? It seems like you just canโ€™t get the light just right to be able to see what youโ€™re doing. ๐Ÿค”

  5. I too struggle knitting and/or crocheting with darker yarn. I just canโ€™t read it very well, especially if and when I go wrong, even in the lighter days of summer. Iโ€™ve a few blankets on my needles currently, one in particular that Iโ€™m hoping to make significant headway on in the upcoming summer holidays when I have more time to work on it.

  6. I donโ€™t chose dark yarns anymore either. Not nice is it. Mind you there is the having a good light over your shoulder and something white on your lap thing to help see the stitches. Still loses pattern in the colour though.
    Thatโ€™s a pretty blue. I hope you enjoy the cotton, I donโ€™t like the lack of movement in it myself. I have a couple of things started I may never finish in cotton/linen.
