Northeasterly Update

Last April I decided that one scrap blanket at a time was not enough, so I cast on a Northeasterly. Instead of knitting it out of fingering weight I decided to make it out of worsted weight. I worked on it for about a month and then I put it aside.

Earlier this year, after finishing the binding on my second sock yarn blanket, I decided to take it out again. This blanket does not get worked on much. I try to knit 30 minutes on it every night where I don’t have plans. I figure if I’m watching TV all night I can get some boring knitting done.

Do you have any projects that you are slowly working on?

    1. I have a sweater I have been working on for 5 years, 2 shawls and a cardi for the past year. One shawl is worked on weekly. The others are pulled out once in a while and given a rose or two. Someday……maybe……they all will become FOs.

  1. That is a great throw! You make the most interesting scrap blankets 🙂 I have some things hibernating, but nothing I’d say I’m slowly working on. For the most part I like to power through projects, for all that I’d love to say I’m enjoying the process.

      1. That’s not cheap! That’s good use of your resources. There are one or two I am looking at doing as well – I have just a ton of scraps and it is really a good thing to do with them.

  2. I have two which is why my blog is so sparse on the knitting front. One is a lace block MKAL which will finish in August and the other is a granny stripe blanket out of sock yarn. I fully expect to be working on this for a loooong time. It is such a relaxing project.
