A Bit of Knitting

A bit of knitting going on here, but otherwise no stitching or quilting at the moment. That will change this week hopefully as my back is so much better. I never realized how long it takes to knit something big :) I am using up yarn that my daughter and I bought to crochet with, but it is smaller than we like to use. I hate to just toss it out, so am knitting a scrappy blanket with it instead. I started out changing colors every few rows, but this left loads of ends to weave in. I am now using the whole cake of yarn and then changing the color. Much better in my humble opinion. The earlier rows will be the top edge of the blanket so that will be helpful. The brand of yarn is style craft and it is soft, just not what we expected when we ordered it. It is just not what we like to crochet with. My boys are lazing around today as it is overcast and rain is in the forecast. Hope your day is blessed and your needle filled with thread.:)

I don't knit. I CAN knit, but crochet is much easier for me. I HATE weaving in the ends. I have totes of yarn. I gave a lot to my grandson's church and will probably try to put a dent in my stash this winter. The church puts items in the trees downtown for anyone who needs a hat or scarf when it gets cold. I think that will be a good stash buster.
