Whats on my needles

Scarves lol
In various colours and textures
 
Fingerless mittens.
Such an easy pattern – basically 20 rows rib, 30 rows stocking stitch followed by 6 rows rib. Sew side seam leaving a hole for the thumb
 
 
Knitted slippers – using some gifted bright multicoloured yarn as the 1st colour and then contrasting colour from odd balls stash for 2nd. Same base – different look
 
More slippers but with a softer look more suitable for bedsocks. Gifted multiclour and contrasts from my stash of bits and pieces
Angela at Earthmama had a post the other day telling us about all the craft things she was making to keep friends and family warm this winter
 
She then asked the question – Whats on your needles?
 
So heres a look at my kitchen table covered in the knitting I have on the go at the moment
Looks like I’m going to busy for a while finishing them off
 

This post is back to front – the photos were supposed to be after the introduction but Blogger won’t work properly and I’ve had to revert to the old one. Only problem is I can’t lower the photos to write the intro lol For some reason can’t link to Angela either
 
So like Angela, my question to you is – What’s on your needles? – What are you working on at the moment ?Anyway whatever it is – enjoy:)

  1. I gave up knitting for crocheting and I always have an afghan or two going……love to do it while I watch TV……makes me feel less useless and self indulgent.Have no photos at the moment but plan to take some. Love your projects.

  3. Aren't you the busy knitter. Os knitting a Winter activity? First sign of cooler weather and it is the couch you head for and pick up you needles.I have a neighbour that knits the slippers. I bought several of them for all the children that visited my house in those years.

  5. You have a nice lot of knitting projects.Thank you for the fingerless gloves – brrrrr, the cold winds we're getting in East Gippsland at the moment, will need them. Think it's chilly over your way too! We use our knitted slippers a lot. They're such a great idea. The only knitting I have is a half finished square that will end up being something. I haven't picked up my needles for ages… however, your post has started me thinking :D)

  6. Hi Cathy, I've been having lots of problems with Blogger and wasn't able to leave a comment until now. I love all your current projects and have posted pictures of what's on my needles at the moment on my blog – that took many hours of waiting for Blogger to respond!
