on the needles

What’s on my needles? Lots, but not a lot I can share with you!

Squishy garter stitch in Colinette Jitterbug.


A random scrap endeavour – i-cord knit with the very last bits of sock yarns, held double and Russian joined together for no ends. Maybe one day I can make a rug out of this.


Just off the needles, a super plain cardigan knit out of superwash merino I’ve had in the stash forever. Still needs the ends woven in and a zipper. I promise I’ll grab some FO shots when it’s done! It was quite nice just knitting something that didn’t require a lot of thinking.

My pace is slowing down a bit after my initial excitement, mostly because I remembered that crochet is harder on my hands and wrists than knitting is! I’ll have to take it easy.

I’m using a lot of scrappy bits of yarn for my blocks, mostly Koigu KPPPM with some Socks that Rock and random one-off leftover balls in my stash. I did discover that I have enough Koigu semi-solids to knit a striped sweater, so I’m considering not using those in the blanket! Currently my plan is to crochet around each block with cream before joining them together – although I only have 10 blocks so far, so we’ll see what happens.

My most favourite square, so far:

goodness, I'm obsessed.
