What’s on My Needles: June 12th

Wow what a week, I have to admit I cast on more then I worked on. I have several projects that I really need to finish but I had the ‘Let’s try something new’ bug all week.

This past weekend was also World Wide Knit in Public day. Did you take advantage of the day and proudly knit in public? I didn’t get the chance to participate because I ran a 5k that morning.

What’s On My Needles

Bullets in Our Fire – CowlIMG_8379

I am getting close to finishing this project and really love the way it is coming out. This is a project I work on specifically during my lunch hour at work. So it’s taking me longer then usual. But it will be a great addition to wardrobe.

Yarn: Plymouth Select, Worsted merino Superwash, in the Blue Oreo Colorway.

Needles: US size 7

Socks — I cast on some great new socks. I have never used Zauberball yarn and found some that I truly love so I cast on a new pair of socks to work on with this wonderful colorway.

Needles: US size 0

Can’t wait for this finished project.


Mountain Man Gloves

I cast on some new Mountain Man Gloves so I could work on this pattern and hopefully have it ready for distribution in a couple of months. More information to come.

Chevron Baby Blanket

I am making this as a gift for  co-worker and this yarn is so soft and cuddle.

However, I am about 30 rows in and for some reason my decrease’s are working out correctly. So I may have to frog this and start over. I have several months to complete it so there isn’t a time crunch I just hate the idea of frogging something that I have worked so hard on.

Yarn: Big Twist yarns, colorway: Yellowchevronblanket

Needles: US size 7 (the pattern calls for US size 9, but my stitches tend to me loose so I am using a smaller size needle)


Finished Objects


Socks – I finished a pair of socks, and like how the turned out. These are a gift and I hope that who I made them for likes them. sockdone

I used two different heels, a afterthought fish lips kiss heel, and then a short row heel. Just because I wanted to see them next to each other. I think I like the short row heel better just an FYI.


What’s on My Spinning Wheel

I am still working on figuring out how to spin so I don’t have anything to report this week but hopefully I will have something by next week.

What’s Happening This Week, June 12th 2017

Just working on my current projects hoping to get something done. Plus training for another 5k, my hope is to be able to run the entire 5k instead of a walk/run combination. Hopefully by the end of the summer I will be able to accomplish this.

Follow me on Instagram to see when I get a project finished: @losachristie21

Still working on book 5 setting a goal to have it finished by the end of July.

Drop me a note and let me know what you are working on.
