I’ve got the yarn bug again –
I’ve been working on a shawl the past couple weeks. I was hoping to finish it over the weekend but may need to put another couple hours into it to finish. It’s going to be so cozy to cuddle in when the weather gets cool, I think.
I’m also working on a “carpool scarf” with some yarn that was given to me by a friend. It’s only two skeins, so I’m hoping I get it to the right length before I run out of yarn because it is discontinued and I’ve not found any online anywhere. Big Girl has claimed it for her own, but I have made her promise she will share with me.
I call it the “Carpool Scarf” because I keep it in the car and work on it while I’m sitting in the carpool line each day. It is coming along nicely and I’m loving the gold threads that are in the yarn – it makes for a pretty sparkle amid the browns and greens.
I have some yarn for my next project ready to go – it’s a very colorful variegated yarn that Little Bit wants me to use to make a scarf and hat for her. I’m thinking I’ll try this hat pattern and maybe something simple like this scarf pattern.
This is the yarn –
Right up her alley in terms of color, don’t you think? Now, I’ll have to find a new winter coat for her to match! I’m thinking a dark purple one maybe.
And, of course, I have all sorts of other projects brewing in my head – I just need to find the time to get to them all!
How about you? Any craftiness at your house lately?
