Ok, well I’ve been knitting my little fingers to the bone lately. Here’s what I’ve been working on, but first a word from our spons…er…sorry, brain fart there. Anyway…
The scarf was made with Flounce yarn. I saw the scarf and loved it so I bought the yarn. Little did I know what a horrible pain in the tushy that would turn out to be. Still, I had started it, and it was keeping my size 13 bamboo needles hostage, so I gritted my teach and worked on it for 2 days and got it finished. I will NEVER use this yarn again, but I do love the effect and cannot wait to wear the scarf somewhere. The colors are gorgeous that it comes in, but good luck to ya. lol. Oh, and the pattern came with the yarn.
It’s been busy here and I’ve fallen behind in my blogging. So let the blogs begin….
I’ve been trying to get started on Christmas pressies. JoAnn Fabrics was having a huge sale over the holidays and I couldn’t resist the yarn sale. I tried a couple and one of them I liked so much that I went back, bought more in other colors and decided that would be some of my Christmas gifts. Here is the scarf I made for myself and I love how it came out so much that this is what some family will be getting. This was my first time doing a basketweave and I thought it would be a lot harder than it turned out to be. It knitted up very fast on size 15 needles with a bulky weight yarn. I think I have enough yarn to make a hat to go with it. I found the pattern somewhere online. I think it was just called a basketweave scarf.
INFORMATION: The yarn is Deborah Norville’s Serenity Chunky Weight and it’s 100% fine acrylic.The colors it comes in are really pretty and does this self-striping pattern.
