Love this scarf! Love this yarn...amazing by Lion brand. Great colors. I am basically a beginner/intermediate knitter.. I learned the basics as a child and never took it farther than knit and purl.
U tube has helped me learn so much! This is Shizuku by Angela Tong. She is a wonderful designer and this was a fun knit. I made it more than half way and made a mistake and had to rip out! YIKES that was upsetting. That is what frustrates me about knitting.. Crochet is easy peasy to fix, knitting not so much and its very easy to create another error by trying to fix. I learned so much doing this scarf I love it and cannot wait to do another. Its fun and funky!

Enjoying my Holiday! I hope you are also..I have been snug as a bug here in Florida with 35 degree weather! I sat in front of the tube all day crocheting, something I never do..My dog thought I would not notice him on my couch! Working on a bunting for my sewing room.. I got the pattern from Crochet with Raymond. I love her stuff.

I am knitting and crocheting my fingers to the bone! I really enjoyed making this scarf! Fun and easy...However, the yarn not so much..Its Lion Brand Homespun.. Its very splitty and hard to work with. I love Lion Brand and this is the first yarn I dislike from them.. Colors are amazing though...Later Y'all!

I must be in the knitting mood lately..This is my Pink Rasta hat! I just love it! pattern is here It took 3 episodes of Law and Order. Don't you like how I time things around Law and Order? Anywho its soft and pink and I love it. I know my daughter in law will probably steal it. That's ok its a quick easy knit!

I am feeling much better after that awful stomach thing! Lost some weight..not the way I want to do it..Worked on this hat during my recovery. Its a Balaclava hat. Its for my Dad. He rides his Harley in the winter and has a house in PA so I figured he might like it. It is definitely a boring knit towards the end. Notes to self watch ladders towards the end. Otherwise I enjoyed it and used Vanna's yarn. Pattern is HERE
Dad does not read my blog so I am pretty safe putting his Christmas gift online! Later Y'all!
