knitting in on my morning bus ride

Just finished up a project–baby blanket in chunky yarn. 4 months late, I guess not too bad considering. Although I forgot to take a picture of the project. Maybe I can get with baby. Started a new project some beautiful yarn that was a gift–hand dyed white with blues and purple. I’m doing a feather and fan pattern with 2 gater stitches in between each repeat. Needed a pattern that I could remember because I put my projects down so often. I’m liking how it the coloring is playing out. The yarn has a bluefish cast  because I shot it on my bus ride to work. Lighting was low on the 6:27 bus.

Trying to work up the knitting fever again. Hopefully the cool weather will bring on. So much yarn in my stash that I need to knit. I’ve been trying to knit my stash away for at least 3 years. Still have about 3 plastic container full. Sigh . . .

. . . But I have I got an idea from a friend who tagged me on a FB post about Wrapped in Love , a charitable knitting/crocheting group that make shawls for the families of organ and tissue donors in NJ Sharing Network.

NJ Sharing Network is the group who handle Oat’s tissue donation. And I was thinking it would be nice if I could do something for this organization and why not use up my stash to knit up wraps for the donor’s family.

I was thinking of doing a knit-a-long but to be truthful I’m lazy. I just want to knit what I want and when I want. So if you want to join me and knitting a wrap or two for this group, let me know. I’m going to try my best to get a few over to them. Also if you need yarn for this project, I can send you yarn from my stash.

I’m going over to a Wrapped in Love Knit Night on October 10th. And if I gather any more information. I’ll pass it along.
