Unraveled Wednesday – free the needles

On the My Sister’s Knitter Raverly group, there is a fun knit along happening #freetheneedles. The idea is to finish up some projects and set some needles free. I finished my Aestlight shawl right off and picked up my half Hansel. I was making good progress until I signed up for the sweater class. That has been my very monogamous knitting the last few weeks. But I really want to finish the Hansel. I am on the last border which is knit sideways, picking up stitches as you go. It is similar to the last border of the Aestlight. Time is not on my side right now. So many back to school meeting and tasks. But I think I can get back to the border after I finish my sweater sleeve. Fingers crossed for another pair of needles set free before Sept. 15.

I just downloaded Delancey Street for the about food bingo square. Not sure I will be able to cover my card but it has been my best reading summer in a long time.

Off to gather enough healthy food and my walking shoes to get me through another long day of meetings (taking full advantage of those breaks to get my steps in).

Be sure to visit Kat for my Unraveled posts today.

  1. I used to work in a middle school library and the back-to-school meetings seemed endless. Worse yet, the principal decreed no knitting during meetings! Wishing you enjoyable knitting and reading time along with time for lots of steps!

  2. I need to “Free the yarn” by putting some of it *on* the needles…seems as tho’ I’m starting over from scratch and that’s OK…my knitting skills are very rusty…
    Knit on!

  3. That sounds like such a great project – I can see lots of applications for “free the …” :). Those are lovely heather-y colours you have there. Wishing you speedy meetings and lots of steps.

  4. #freetheneedles does sound so much better than #buynewneedles doesn’t it?! sounds like you’re making good progress on all the knitting fronts … and I look forward to hearing what you think of Delancey. I read Molly’s blog for years and remember when she/they moved and she was writing the book.
