Finished Object[s] - Scarves [x3]
Things get hectic this time of year and I feel as though I have been neglecting my duty to report on finished objects. This post is an attempt at catching up on some of that reporting. First, a one row scarf I started in 2010 using Rowan Felted Tweed DK - YUMMY yarn - in the best color ever: Pickle! Ravelry Link HERE.
I don't know why it took me so long but this scarf was a battle to complete. I *almost* ripped it out 5 or 6 times... thinking I didn't WANT to knit it. However, this is leftover yarn from a Guernsey finished in 2008 and I only had a few balls of the yarn left... so what else would I do with it. Fighting the urge, it's finally a respectable length and finished, blocked, and beautiful. I'm happy with it although it was a bit boring to knit.
Crafty Andy and I got together back in November to weave a fun project using a pattern from Schacht Spindle's newsletter (find the newlsetter HERE). We had a great time making scarves together before he left on his trip out of the country for Thanksgiving. Here's the second scarf I have to show you today (known as "Gratitude" on my Ravelry page). Woven and lovely!
After this scarf, I wanted to make a looooong version so I pulled out my sock yarn stash and found some other goodies to play with. A day later, I came up with this second version... (my 3rd scarf to share)... super lengthy, flowy, and really really soft!
In other news, of course I'm knitting like crazy. Most knitters are knitting like crazy this time of year, as crocheters are crocheting, and crafters are crafting. Lots of projects to complete before the holiday deadlines... and while I'd like to talk about those I can't (or shouldn't) so I will do my best to keep quiet. [for now]. I guess that's it until I can find time to take photos of some of the other projects that are completed... I'll leave you with a sweet photo of Willow (my 3-legged kitty):
