On The Needles - August 24, 2012

It's been several weeks since I've done one of these and the pointy sticks have been flying at super sonic speed. Firstly, I will show you the completed works and then the OTN. All of these are for Wool-Aid, btw.

The Fake Isle Hat. Made with Lion Brand Wool Ease Worsted.

A stack of hats made with leftovers of Lion Brand Amazing Yarn and Wool Ease.

A Keep-Me-Warm vest using doubled unknown wool yarn purchased at Goodwill Thrift Store.
I still need to weave the ends.

Another Keep-Me-Warm vest using doubled yarn.
This yarn is by Caron and was also purchased at Goodwill Thrift Store.

  1. WOW - awesome finishes.

  2. Wonderful knits, Paula. I love the first vest, such a pretty shade of purple. Isn't it fun to find such treasures at Good Will?

  3. Wow, that is a lot of projects. A lot of people are going to keep warm this winter, thanks to you.

  4. Wow, lots of gorgeous knitting...love your first hat!

  5. Wonderful projects!! That's neat that you've found yarn at your local Goodwill store. I keep looking for some here....

  6. Isn't Amazing yarn amazing to work with! I found this last year and although I live in the south and have no purpose for scarves, I knit a scarf from each of the colorways! The upside of this is that I think I'll be moving to Massachusetts in the very near future.
    Love to see your projects!

  7. I'm going to have to pay more attention and look for yarn at the thrift store. The vests look easy enough for me even. I'm still working on Christmas gifts but when all my kids and grandkids have a hat I will still want to keep knitting and knitting for others is a great idea.
