Months just flying by. Happy 4th to those of us in the US! Let’s see what you’re knitting now.

I actually have a few projects that I am working on all at once. I am working on a new dog sweater for my dog, a baby combo and a jacket, skirt and pants for a toddler… I am sure I will find one or two more things to work on in between. I prefer to work on more than one item cause I find that I do not get bored with the repetition of a pattern this way

These are the first two coasters in a coaster set I am making as a holiday gift.

Same hat I was working on a month ago. Almost the same spot except I had a long Dr’s office wait once.

Aren’t we all little beavers :smile:


#11

I’m a beginner. I’m working on a sweater kit that I bought from We Are Knitters. So far, it’s not the greatest work, but we’ve all got to start somewhere!


#12

I am sure you will do just fine. Post a picture when you finish it :smile:


#13

It’s a baby blanket. I’m kind of making up the pattern as I go along. It’s worked double-stranded. I started with 6 stitches in a circular cast on, increased to 12 on the first round, knit the next and then increased again to 18. Every 3rd row after that I added 12 stitches to the round. I’ve got 6 repeats so it should end up as a hexagon shape. I changed out one strand every 12 rows to get the color progression. I’ve gotten to the bind off row and decided to do an I-cord bind off. I’m almost 1/2 done with this last bit. I’ll post a pic when I get it pinned for blocking.

Looking forward to seeing it


#15

Speaking of multiple projects at once- me too. I get bored working on the same thing day after day, so I break up projects to prevent repetition boredom. I’ll have needlework too, or some quick crochet things in between doing a pair of socks or something.


#16

Wow I posted a couple of days ago that I was working on three projects at once I have now included a fourth project. I like WhampudKitty work on needlework and a paint by number set. These projects along with everyday activities sure does not give me time to be bored. :grinning:


#17

I have to admit that I have actually done two projects while I still had one unfinished. That’s a first! After many failed attempts at getting a border on the dish towel, I put it away while I made the baby blankets. The last attempt came out great until I realized that I had trapped the second strand needed for Kitchener stitch inside the border while putting around the back of it with the first strand. I grabbed the wrong strand to pull it out and tightened up all the stitches on the front instead of pulling out the loose strand. Today I think I will start over on the same style of border and make sure I don’t make the same mistake again.


#18

DvArghh, good for you for sticking with this and working out the method for the next one.


#19

Double knitting is an awesome technique, but sometimes it can be a pain in the butt! So this afternoon I’ll be starting attempt #4.

Here is the completed blanket pinned out for blocking.
