What's On My Needles

Hi, right now I'm working on a mini KAL with Crimson Purl and Adrienne. Yes, Adrienne, press on my sister! Ok, this started in June after I read one of Crimson Purl's posts about a visit with Adrienne and her habu score. Off we started. Who knew that knitting with habu was like a giant trying to play footsies with Thumbelina! Man, it has been quite an adjustment to knit with this dental floss. LOL But, the yarn is so beautiful, I've been determined. I started knitting it with straight needles which drove me straight crazy. So, it sat for a few weeks. This week I switched to circulars and I'm soaring! Now I made a few adjustments primarily to the width, so we'll see how it goes. I'm determined to get this baby completed this month because I've already prepared a Fall/Winter knit list!

I'm also working to finish my first pair of socks on two circulars. I'm about 75 percent finished....

Still working on my Nikki Epstein purse...

Haha!! Great analogy @ Giant/Thumbelina :o)

You are working on some other great projects too!

This has been my summer to focus on lace and socks as well!

I plan to simmer down in September and begin on my fall knits then!

Lets keep Knitting Hard Kamaca!!

I love Habu but have only knit a sample amount. I can hardly wait to visit the store the next time I go to NYC
