No-go mojo and a sneak peek

Even though my knitting mojo was a no-go for a few weeks, I did manage some relatively mindless knitting making more scrubbies.I love the top one but dealing with two balls of this scratchy yarn in one row was too much for my hands.  All were made with Red Heart Sparkle Scrubby yarn.

So all the others were two or three color blocks.  Much more interesting than a solid color.  They do hold up well and the best part is they dry quickly.

Craftsy was hosting a week-long series of Valentine crafts and I decided to make a heart-shaped scrubbie.  The pattern is free but you might have to sign up to get it.

My mods were to stop increasing after 36 stitches (34 rows), straight knitting for 10 rows then follow the instructions for the decreases.  It is just too cute for dishes!

I also signed up for the fourth season on The Handmade Sock Society and already have the first sock started.  More on that later this week.

While waiting for the first sock pattern, I decided to sort through all my yarn stash for something suitable.  I found some DK weight yarn leftover from the cowl I knit for my grandson that was enough for the Twist Again Shawl from the Deep Fall 2014 issue of Knitty.

Here’s a sneak peek of the finished shawl.

How is your crafting coming along so far this year?

  1. My cro-jo is lacking. I did finish the second mitten last night during that boring sport spectacle, so now there are only two projects on the hook that I need to finish.
