My Knitting

Mouse 23:


I'd like, on the one hand, to start stuffing them, but I kinda like leaving them unstuffed, too, because I am not sure what I would do if they were stuffed and the cats discovered them! They're so sneaky ...

I put a little more on my afghan and used up the rest of the lime green:


Then I started my Bohemian scarf ... I was a little worried I wouldn't like the pattern. I shouldn't have been; the pattern was wonderful! Every now and then you find the exact right pattern and the perfect yarn for it, and it is good; this was one of those times.

It was a quick knit; it only took 2 days. I added a little more to my afghan:

The Heart Cookie mitts that I blocked this week also took only 2 days.

But now I am knitting something that is taking a couple weeks to knit. I am using this:


Wonderful, sparkly skein of purple yummimess ... to make the flounced scarf of Drops design (Drops 129-28). I saw the woman at Have A Yarn in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia knitting it in pale gray, and it looked so nice. I chose a ball of the purple, and got the pattern from her, and set it aside. Now I finally am getting around to it!

It is knit on size 3 needles ... if I had really thought about it, I might not have done that. I could probably have gone up a size or two ... or three or four ... but I didn't. I just blindly followed the pattern, like some demented sheep. It's coming along nicely, but it seems slow after the last two projects!

Ruffle scarf 


I can knit about 6" a day, on a good day. Maybe I'll be done by next week! I keep telling myself that the ball is only 229 yards long ...




Beautiful projects! Where'd you get the pattern for the Bohemian scarf? It looks interesting.

It's on Ravelry :)


You knitting looks great and there is so much of it. I'm so impressed. Those mitts are adorable.
