Knitting Marathon! 26.2 hours… Join us!

A fellow blogger (http://cherylmarieknits.wordpress.com/) has introduced me to the knitting marathon – She decided to do an impromptu session starting tonight at 7pm. This afternoon I made the decision to knit along. In preparation I have put a roast in the crock pot…

 and have decided what I will work on:

I need to finish this pair of slippers

I need to repair my MASSIVE mistake on the Kevin-Sweater, and finish it (underarms, weave in ends and the neck)

I need to finish ripping out the billion-cable-sweater (it’s been cabled for about 8 years) so that I can start this new sweater with this beautiful watermelon colored yarn.

I am going to cheat a bit and begin knitting in a few – we are watching The Daytona 500… GO DENNY!… and nothing goes better with racing than knitting.

Also, before the end of the day on Tuesday, I need to make 2 necklaces and a set of eye glasses holders.

I haven’t decided if I will do the cream pearls or the grey inside the hematite rings… we’ll see.

These lilac purple pearls will be a necklace for my step-daughter Katie – this is the first to be made when I take a break from knitting. All girls need a set of “everyday-signature-pearls”. She has been wearing the set of pink mini-pearl and silver balls that I made her 5 years ago when Kevin and I got married. She’s 13 now, and growing up, so she needs a pair of “I’m-a-teen-and-I-rock” pearls.

 These small denim-blue stones will be paired with small sterling balls to make a pair of eyeglasses holders for my mother.

I have no idea what I am making with this rose quartz, but it’s mine, and I like it!

I will post updates throughout the marathon…

Join me if you can – for part, or all!

Post with me online, or stop by the house – I have plenty of coffee (I heart my Keurig), tea, soda, snacks… Come on over! (But don’t mind the mess… I’m not stopping to clean!)

And the knitting begins in 5… 4… 3… 2…
