Cast On

I seem to be in the mood for knitting. Since my GA trip is coming up in less than a week I decided to cast on another project to take along with me. I went searching through my yarn bins and decided it was time to cast on Cameo. My shawl will have a tone on tone kind of feel I think with one solid and one variegated yarn that are close in color. Hopefully I’ll like the result.

I love my knitting bag so much I’ve ordered a second one. I tend to have one or two scarf/shawl projects and one blanket project going at a time so I decided a second bag would be nice to have for the blanket projects then I’d be able to grab whichever project I felt like working on and go. Since I only knit or crochet small blankets, the bag is plenty big to hold the yarn and project.

I also started piecing the 2nd Drunkard’s Path quilt. I cut it out of Homespuns and it’s not looking like I want and I’m almost tempted to toss it all out. Instead, I’ve ordered some best press to help tame some of the stretchiness of the fabric and I’ll make a few more blocks before deciding one way or the other. My main Drunkard’s Path quilt is still waiting to be worked on but I didn’t want to start it and then leave for two weeks.

Since Keith is gone for the week, my table is set up so I can pin baste a couple small quilts but I haven’t started them yet. He gets back late Friday so I’d better get a move on.

I love it when I time Chesty’s walk just right and get to see the sunset.

    Lovely sunset. That really would be nice to see on a walk.

    You must be preparing to have lots of projects to work on while in Georgia – both knitting and quilting. Good plan.

    I really like the shawl pattern. I like making garter stitch shawls, they always look so nice. I don’t have that pattern, not yet anyway. Thanks for sharing yours.

    Your shawl will be amazing….i can see that already! i am 3/4 done knitting a prayer shawl using Lion Brand Homespun; simple garter stitch, but enjoy knitting with the soft, variegated yarn….color “mimosa” this time.
