On The Needles Today…


I am making a little progress on the latest pair of socks.  I am working on the heel flap, and will soon do the turn.  It is going slowly because…


I have really gotten SUCKED INTO this Reader’s Wrap.  I am loving it!  It is an easy and fun knit.  I forget how quickly large needles and large yarn add up!  The color did not come across well in the above picture.  It is called “Bronze”, is a beautiful tweed with black and tan nibs works into the yarn, and has a little more golden-brown cast to it than the picture indicates.  I have about 22” done, and try to knit at least 2-3” each day.  I need 58” before I work the ending pattern and make the pockets.

Check out what others are working on at Judy’s Patchwork Times!

Have a great weekend!  I plan on spending as much time as I can sitting in my chair knitting on the Reader’s Wrap (and nursing a very painful knee).



  1. Socks are great. Shawl is fabulous. Too much purl for me....not my favorite stitch. Every time I think maybe, I remember how much purl there is. LOL Resisting!!!!!

  2. Wow, the reader's wrap looks great. I love the yarn you selected, too. Such fun stripes on the socks. I really must cast on a pair of socks.

  3. Your socks look great. I'm really contemplating knitting the Reader's Wrap - yours looks fabulous, love the yarn.

  4. Well I LOVE that reader WRAP. No wonder you want to stick with it to the end.! It looks amazing already

  5. Socks are my favorite knitting project because of the portability. But I am currently working on larger projects. That pink self striping is nice.


Thank you for visiting! I love comments... so thanks for taking the time to leave one.
