Finishing off 2006
As far as knitting goes, I know myself, and there is no way I could commit to something like the Knit From Your Stash. It is a great idea, don't get me wrong, I just don't have that kind of will power! I am weak when it comes to the pretty yarns! You all do that though, more yarn for me - haha! And I am not going to plan what I am going to knit for the next year either. I enjoy knitting and trying new things. I should knit more gifts thru out the year that way December is more relaxing. In theory, that sounds like a great idea. But, we all get distracted along the way! Oh well, no big deal. This is my hobby, not a thesis to be judged by a panel of professors. So I will just have fun with it!
The same with my blog, this is for fun. A great way to keep in touch with family and friends while keeping a record as well. I try to have fun with it. If anyone is judging me or snarking, that is their problem. I am not writing for them, I am writing for me!
Enough of the serious stuff, I have a Finished Object!
My first Red Scarf is done! Yeah!!
I like it! It is soft and warm and bright!
Here are the details:
KnitPicks Swish Superwash Red Pepper almost 3 balls
Stampato Extra Color 8019 1 1/2 balls
cast on 48 stitches size 8 needles
3X2 ribbing 60 inches
Red Scarf #2 is about halfway done. So I am thinking it would make sense to mail them together.
Have a great holiday! Enjoy yourself and make good choices!
