Knitting with Oboe Reeds

It must be a nightmare. Lately I have been knitting almost as much as I've been practicing my oboe, and now I am having these re-occurring dreams in which I am endlessly knitting. But at the ends of my knitting needles are oboe reeds! Hmmm.... Either I am playing my oboe too much, or I am knitting too much. Or I just need more sleep. :-)

This is "Martine" from the Summer Essentials book by Debbie Bliss. I am making it for Katie, and it was supposed to have been finished this summer. Did I ever mention that I am a slow knitter? I have the back finished and am midway through the left front. I love the yarn I am using---so soft, and the color is lovely.



  1. I love it, Mom! Thank you so much for working on it for me. :) The color is definitely the best, and I think I'll keep your crazy pictures on my flickr.

  2. It's going to be so nice! Love the design and the color. I'm going to have to check out that yarn. It looks wonderful!

  3. Ruth, I have crazy dreams like that to! i hope you are all well. I love the sweater.

    Love, Heather

  4. That's just too funny! My daughter who knits told me she saw some knitting needles that were as thin as toothpicks, but she's never mentioned any that look like oboe reeds!

  5. Hi, Ruth & Jessica. I enjoy your blog tremendously and I'm tagging both of you for the "8 Things We Didn't Know About You" meme. Can't wait to see your lists!
