Knit Marathon Prepping

Hey Y’all… Tomorrow? Is the start of the knit marathon hosted over at Cheryl Marie Knits. This is my 4th marathon with her. Last month I tried, but with the kids on vacation it was a mighty task to undertake.

I will be knitting for a total of 26.2 hours between Weds and Thurs. I may get a “pre-run” in tonight with the Library Knitters. This marathon comes with good timing, as I am so deep in unfinished projects I am feeling a bit overwhelmed, and I have promised Kevin I will get started on our Anniversary Quilt that I got the materials for LAST YEAR!!!

So… Here’s what I will be working on for my marathon:

This is the Kaftan from my knit a long. I have completed the back, and am now working the front. I will try to get the main part of the front finished… and will NOT continue to the part where I pick up stitches along the front. I WILL NOT!!!!   Nope! I won’t do it!


This awesome pink is going to be frogged and recast to become a pair of pom pom peds for Maddy. They were going to be longer socks for her, but then I came across this awesome pattern over at The Purl Bee, and knew it was meant for Maddy’s toes. These will be my “break time” knitting project. I hope she likes them. The pattern looks super quick and simple.


Here is my February Lady’s Sweater… IT hit the blog rounds early last year, and I cast on this winter during our big snow storm when I was desperate to get something on some needles. I am not certain at all that I like the way it is turning out, so I may frog it and make it become something all together different… I think it will take another few inches before I decide if she stays or goes…


This is going to be cast on to become a pair of pom pom peds for my Katie…


For now, I think that is enough to keep me busy for the marathon.  I won’t just be knitting from home, though. I will be knitting tonight at the library, tomorrow morning I will be knitting at The Fiber Studio with my Weds ladies. I am also hoping that my Mama will invite me over to knit there for a bit as well.


Keep an eye on my blog, as I will be posting updates and pics through out the marathon… If you want to keep me company please comment and I can see what you are making…
