I have had the Blooming Cotton Scarf languishing in my WIP pile since 2009. 2009!!! I would start it, but then have to rip. 400 stitches is a lot. I would always be off somehow. Or I would twist my stitches when joining in the round. So I would rip again. I finally have up for a while. I picked it back up last week and I’m getting so excited about finishing it.
Truth be told, I did twist the stitches when I joined in the round. And guess what – it doesn’t matter. This thing is going to be cut open to make fringe anyway, so it’s just a bit annoying when letting the MC yarn sit there and it gets tangled. I just re-adjust every round.
I’m about halfway through the repeats and color changes, and I’m getting antsy. I want to just sit and finish it! Updates to come when it’s complete!
Good Lord! It’s been a while since I’ve posted. A bit over two years to be exact! A lot has happened since then and I’ve done a bit of knitting. Let’s not delay any longer – here’s the update:
- I got married
- We bought a house (more on that later)
- I changed jobs (did I mention this before?)
Ok, so now that I type it out it doesn’t seem like that much. But these are some big things. Right now I’m working with my husband on the house. It’s no ordinary house, it’s Frankenhouse. It’s quite a project that we are taking on, so we’ve started another blog to help chronicle our adventures. It’s…something else.
Now what you came here for, the knitting! I actually took about a year off from knitting because there was so much going on in my life. When I took it back up, I knit up a storm. Recently, I even started fixing and finishing some things that have been sitting in my WIP bin.
Currently working on:
I’ve been posting most of my updates on Ravelry, so hit me up there if you’d like to see pictures of all these. I’ll try to be better about posting in the future.
