Scarf-O-ManiaI've been slacking on Phildar Stripey....the endless stockinette is boring me to death..argh.. I am so not in the mood for big projects recently, so I've resorted to making scarves. Here is Leaf Cravat by Teva Durham, using sz 5 needles and a sport weight Baruffa Aerobic Yarn.
Let me tell ya, this sucker is LONG. I just kept knitting and knitting, and before you know it, it's 10 ft long! Ha ha.. Good thing it's uber-skinny, so I can just wrap and wrap and wrap. I'm also working on another scarf for my mom, but no pictures yet.
So remembered how I tried to steer my sister away from black, gray and white? She still wants gray. I've managed to talk her into adding another color, and guess what she wanted? Dark Olive Green. *shakes head* I give up. Here's her cabled armwarmer, using sz 7 circs and Cascade 220 yarn.
Since I'm in the mood for scarves and little pick-me-ups lately, I've signed on to Stitch Ya Neck Out. Check it out, we've got some awesome knitters in the swap. I've never knit for another fellow knitter before, so I'm a little nervous about having my knitting scrutinized. What if my swap pal thinks I am a horrible knitter? What if she thinks her scarf looks like crap? yea, self-doubts can be nerve-wrecking. Hopefully it will work out. The kick-off is early August. Go sign up like I did (at 3am in the freakin' morning when I was semi-delusional).
Supposed to be meeting Joy and Andrea in the afternoon. A little anxious, but a little excited nonetheless.
