Contented Knitting

Buck Strong's picture

There is something very comforting in knitting a project that is big enough to keep your lap warm. My current sweater project got to that length a few days ago. I've had several cozy days knitting away with a touch of fall in the air. Of course, that ends this week as Indian Summer kicks in. We're scheduled for 90's this week.

ah yes - hasn't happened

ah yes - hasn't happened with me in a while... i'm on this baby sweater kick. I have 10 skeins of Icelandic yarn and an adult sweater pattern waiting on me to give them my undivided attention though. :-)

I have my sweater with me in

I have my sweater with me in the hospital...and it's been great to work on...but I only have about three more hours on it then I have to stop, because I can't machine sew the steeks and cut in hospital! LOL
A friend is going to buy me cheerful multicoloured red wool and needles so I can work on some socks...I'll probably be here three more days.

Yep. Now that you mention

Yep. Now that you mention it, that's one of the things I like about sweaters as opposed to socks. They're big enough to feel suybstantiona lon your lap.
