Further proof that I am an ADD knitter..

Against the better judgement of most knitters, I have begun a new project... In my defense, I needed to start one for my MIL's b-day. I am knitting up the purl shawl from Tangle Online. It's really very cute. Although, I am not using the Fiesta ribbon tape yarn. I'm using Lion's Brand Wool Ease in Red. I think the chunky, warm Wool-Ease will make for a great shawl to cuddle with. I hope to complete it and give it to my MIL with a good book. I think a cozy shawl and a good book to curl up with sound terrific. Maybe I'll add some tea as well! I'll include pics of my progress.



  1. I am a new knitter (although my blog is about music) and want to know why yarn seems to pass so roughly using acrylic needles. Metal needles = no problem, but its almost as if the yarn "sticks"?

  2. I found that with acrylics it can be a humidity issue. I don't particularly care for acrylics. I love my nickle and bamboo! Maybe try a different brand of acrylics?

  3. Aw, you're allowed to start as many projects as you want!

  4. You sure seem like you could handle all the projects that you want. I have been starting machine embroidery projects and I feel like I have to many projects to finish but I just cant wait to get them all finished. I love doing it and its my favorite thing to do now days.
