I'm knitting

This is what I'm working on now.

It's going to be another lovely scarf  knit from 
Fiesta Baby Boom Tequila Sunrise
It's a 100% Extrafine Super Wash Merino I've made from this yarn

 it is soooo nice next to my skin.

Last month at our 4th Tuesday Knit Nite Paula showed her current project
and I fell for the pattern at once. 
The leaves are what pulled me in.
This is Saroyan and the pattern for it is on  Rav

I've been knitting on and off since our last Knit Night because Paula was not the only gal whose project caught my eye


Last month Joanna modeled her newest.
It was a very cool neckwarmer/snood.
Ah ha, it was just what I was looking for
I knew exactly what yarn I was going to use.

I used that wonderful Malabrigo wool yarn that I won on Lina's fantastic giveaway last November

I had begun and frogged two other projects involving this soft, soft yarn.
But look what it is now ! ! !

I've emblellished it with Lyn's silk ribbon Gerbera Daisy that I won on her giveaway.
We all know Lyn, she's the wonderful watercolor artist who painted Renee's portrait.
Hope to be able to show these off at tonight's Knit Nite.

  4. When my older daughter was ready to go to college, in between bouts of outright crying and sobbing, I knit her an afghan for her twin bed in the dorm that was ALL leaves, this same pattern but totally leaves. Beautiful - but what fit the twin DORM bed not fits her queen size bed (and she is 40+ years old). It seems my knitting is a little loose and grows, and grows, and grows. The family joke is - the sweater (complete with tractor, barns and cows) that I made for my 3 yr old grandson (now 14) will take him all the way through college. LOL

  5. You have been doing lots of knitting! I have some of that Fiesta yarn and have been wondering what to do with it. The cowl looks great!

  8. Beautiful projects! I admire anyone who knits....I could never get the hang of it, although I can crochet because it's more forgiving.
