Got Soup?

Its been one of those weeks. Actually, just a couple of days, but it feels like a week. I'll be glad when this work week is done. One more day.

The only project I've touched since late Tuesday night was this.

I knit just two rows Tuesday night. Three or four last night. A few more tonight.

And when I read this post last night, I understood why. As Sam said, garter stitch is chicken noodle soup. Well, garter stitch + socks that rock heavyweight = chicken noodle soup for me. Maybe its chicken with stars...hehehe

Mmmmm, garter stitch! So comforting.

Your Ravelry project page says Moderne, but it's looking like a Log Cabin. Yes? Great colors!

Stacey said...

Love to you, I'm having a similar week, knitting one or two rows a night. Here's hoping for a great knitting weekend for the both of us!

There is something amazingly comforting about just being able to knit knit knit.

It is Friday now, hang in there!

Oooh. Garter stitch STR. Heaven.

Bezzie said...

Oh man, it's been a while since we've seen that. But yes, those big boring garter stitch projects are quite soothing.

You know I love the garter stitch :0)

Sorry you're having a crappy week. There's always tomorrow.....

knittingknirvana said...

I understand! That is why I always have a felted bag knit in the round on the needles. Easy, mindless, and I only have to look at what I am doing once in awhile. And, guess what . . . it is FRIDAY!!! :)

TGIF!

And I know you're going to have a wonderful weekend too. ;)

Love your blankie! One of these days I'll cast on one for that comfort factor too.

Brena said...

It's friday!!!!!!! Thank goodness. Garter stitch is great when you're drained.

chemgrrl said...

Oh, that looks so squishy and lovely that I just want to crawl inside right underneath where the needles are and watch as the knit knit knit stitches happen over my head.

I guess I've had a week too.

Hope your weekend makes you feel better!

sgeddes said...

I love those pinks though. How are you going to finish yours off?

You've got an eye for gorgeous colors!

Sam said...

Everyone needs a little soup some days. I hope next week is better for you.

The blanket is beautiful!

peaknits said...

It has got to be in the stars because my week sucked too! oy! That blanket though - what a warm fuzzy - perfect prescription for the blahs!

hearthead said...

I just LOVE this blanket! Thanks for reminding me of something I can do with my STR. Miss you!

tiennie said...

There's just something about garter stitch that shows off the beauty of yarn!

Zonda said...

Ok, it's been a week all around! Gorgeous garter!! Hugs!

Knitting Kris said...

What has happened this week? My week was terrible too! I couldn't wait for Friday. I think your blanket looks like the perfect remedy for the blahs. Thanks heavens for the weekend!
PS - I'm a lover or garter stitch too!

Im in the Garter group on Ravelry. I love me some garter stitch. Soothing, I say. Im working on a hat with a garter brim. YOUR garter is lovely in that weight.

Jadielady said...

I know exactly what you mean. Yesterday was a rotten no good terrible day so I knit 2 washcloths while hanging out with friends. Felt better so fast!!!

Nell said...

I should definitely shift my focus from garter stitch being a slog to the chicken soup theory. Much more pleasant!
