This post is a year of projects update.
Frustration has set in once again regarding that Noro Kureyon Sock yarn that I bought in October last year. It started off as a crochet scarf but felt horribly stiff and didn't look all that great so it got frogged and after spending hours on Ravelry and armed with what I figured would be a good pattern for this yarn, I started a knit scarf. Fifteen inches later it was put aside and forgotten about for a few months then (did you guess?) .. it got ripped out and was to become an asymmetrical neck shawl - but only for a day or two when I realised that one ball wouldn't be enough. So now, just because I'm thoroughly sick of it but because it cost too much to just throw away, this yarn is going to end up just a plain garter stitch scarf on 5mm needles so it will be soft, about 5 inches wide and for as long as the yarn lets it be. I won't bore you with a picture right now .... maybe when (if) its finished.
Earlier in the week I received my order of some more lovely Sugar'n'Cream cotton to make washcloths and soap sack gifts. Here's a couple of the cloths ..
I also finished another one of my orders yesterday but I'll have to wait till tomorrow to get a a photo to show you as my camera's battery needed to be charged. This scarf is my favourite so far and is done with the Katia Ondas (Col.74). The pinks and purples work beautifully together and the result is quite stunning. Please pop back tomorrow for a peek.
Can't recall if I put it on my list or not, but during this year of projects I really would like to get back to my Wool Eater blanket (Reversible Hungarian blanket) and either get it finished or well on the way to being finished.
I do tend to procrastinate on some things and blankets are one of them ! Like many crocheters/knitters, I see something that looks interesting, quick and easy so just 'have' to make it straight away. Of course this doesn't leave much time for other, bigger items.
