It's Finished! And now I am jones'n to start another...actually I have started another...LOL..but it will be more of a wrap. This pattern came from Vanna White's Book, Heartfelt Gifts to Knit and Crochet. I can highly recommend this to anyone who knits.
This is such a fun scarf to work on. I just selected the colors that appealed to me and went to town. After I finished one stripe I randomly picked up another color and went from there. After about a third way through the scarf I no longer needed the pattern to refer to. It is very repetitive and easy to remember!
I love the lacy look it has! I can see this done up in so many ways. It would be beautiful done in different earth tones. I started another one in red and plan on adding cream, black, and grey into it. And I am making it wider to be used more like a wrap.
In the meantime I have been asked to knit a vest for a co-worker. I am a bit nervous about it, not truly knowing exactly what she wants and if my knitting skills are up to par. And then the hardest thing of all...COMING UP WITH A PRICE! I don't know if any of you have this problem. But it is a tough one for me. After all, my time is my time, and it is precious and hard to come by!
I have so many other things I want to do as well, and a house full of projects that are seriously needing my attention! Plus my Babette Blanket really needs to get finished...it is so close! Maybe if I get it out and place it on the ottoman in front of my favorite seat in the house...just maybe I may be enticed to pick it up again!
For now...I'm back to the grind!
