Stalled Knitting

Period of Purple Crying Cap
started August 2012
9-inch circular needle, size 4
54 stitches 
I don't know why this baby hat for the Shaken Baby Foundation Click for Babies project has been stalled for over three months. I finally moved it to my knitting chair in the front room; hopefully, I'll work on it more in that spot.

Knitting buddy, Cheryl gave me the yarn in June to knit a chemo cap for my sister. I decided to use the remaining yarn to knit baby hats.

I recommend the On Your Toes Bamboo sock yarn: it is delightful to knit and is very soft.

Do you have any knitting projects that have been hopelessly stalled?


  1. I don't have any knitting projects left undone but I do have chrocheted projects that need to be finished.....

  2. No stalled projects --- I'm a one-at-a-time kinda girl. Well, except for the blanket --- so I'm a TWO-at-a-time kinda girl, but both are moving along okay.

    Cute color on the hat.

  3. Pretty! I have two stalled projects I feel badly about. One is the red mohair cardi I started last year for Christmas wear... it isn't looking good for this year either, but it is at least back out by my knitting spot.

    The second is a shrug for a friend I started more years ago than I care to admit. I might drag that out and finish it for Christmas instead, and save my red cardi for a Valentines deadline?

  4. I have a couple of stalled projects. One is so simple it could be finished in an afternoon, but for some reason, it sits. The other is a lace shawl with lace weight yarn that takes more concentration than I'm willing to give it most of the time.

  5. That yarn looks very soft and the stitch definition is lovely. Stalled projects - oh yea. Finally after 2+ years I finished the modern quilt wrap - now it's waiting on blocking. Soon, soon. I have 2 cardigans that are stalled - one because the pattern has stumped me, but I think I've figured that out. And the second needs the button bands ripped off and put back on because they weren't quite long enough and the front pulls up. Been sitting around for 3 years or so just waiting. Thanks for the push. g

  6. That purple bamboo will make a cute hat and would also make great socks. I haven't knit with bamboo for several years and I remember it as slippery and hard to manage. They have probably improved it so I should try it again. As so stalled projects, I must admit that I have at least a dozen!

  7. I sure have. Mine is well and truly stalled. A pair of socks only needing the toes finished. Stalled for about 10 years! I guess you could say quilting has taken over my life.


  8. Oh yes, I have a lace shawl that is about 2/3 completed...and it stalled out about 2 years ago. I'm thinking I'll feel like working on it again this summer...it may call me, maybe...

    The blue yarn looks silky and so soft.

    the period of purple crying is so important! We have the dvd to give to all parents. It is short, informative and every parent says they appreciate the information. Great cap idea

  10. Bamboo is such a joy to work with, so soft and cool! I also find that having a project out in plain view helps me take the time to work on it. You'll be finishing this one up before you know it!

  11. I have several whole sweaters stalled in various stages. Most of them have stalled because it takes too much thinking to keep knitting. One is from the late 80's early 90's with baubles on it. I had a skirt that would have gone with it perfectly but I never finished it. Perhaps it is time to rip that thing out and repurpose the yarn. It is much more fun to knit for small children. But for now I'm spending most of my time on quilting.
