It became an Infinity scarf…

Hello everyone.

Last week I posted a picture of a WIP using up some left over yarn I had.

I didn’t know if I was going to use it as a shawl or a scarf.  In the end, I sewed the 2 ends together and made an infinity scarf.

Because I used 3 strands of yarn at one time, it’s super thick so will be really warm for the blustery winter they’re predicting for us.

And it’s quite wide, so can use it as a hood too.

Well, off to finish a baby blanket for a friend whose daughter-in-law is expecting in January.

Happy knitting!

I’ve been busy, but not with knitting…

I can’t believe it’s almost a month since I posted anything!

I’m still knitting (LOL), but quite sparingly, as we brought home this cutie just 4 weeks ago and he has taken up ALL of our time!

His name is Sam and he’s a standard poodle.

He’s settled in now and is on a schedule so I know when he naps, which is right now! 😀 Hence why I’m able to write a blog post!

I’m working away on my Downtown Mission hats and have started a scarf/wrap? out of leftover yarn I’ve had in my stash.  I’m using 3 strands of yarn at one time for some really unique colouring and a piece that has some amazing weight to it for warmth.  I’m thinking I may use it as a wrap instead of a scarf as I didn’t follow a pattern and the amount of stitches I used created something I think may be too wide for a scarf.  I’ll see when I’m done.

Have a great day!

Time to get started…

Hi everyone!

I know it’s the middle of summer, but it’s time to get started making my Christmas presents for family and friends!

I’ve already started my father’s scarf he requested.  When I asked him what colour he would like, he said for me just to make it from leftovers from other projects.  So, that’s what I’ve been doing.  Here it is so far:

I’m also still working on items for my pattern book I’m hoping to have available in September.  There will be 4 new never published patterns in it, along with 4 others of my favourites.  It will be available as a downloadable PDF.

AND, in between all this, I’m still knitting hats and scarves to donate to the local downtown mission in hopes to keep some less fortunate people a little warmer this winter.

In fact, all of the items I create to write and test my patterns get donated, so there’s already a little pile started!

It’s a bit cooler here today and it’s raining! What a wonderful change from the heat we’ve had.  Here’s hoping this weather stays around for a bit.

Happy knitting!
