Here's the progress on the first scarf for Dee's 60 Scarves in 60 days challenge. I'm actually further, and I've run out of yarn. Yes, it is knit, simple stockinette stitch. I barely know how to decrease and increase and haven't really learned any new combinations of stitches yet. I chose to do stockinette and not learn a new stitch pattern because I haven't knit in a few weeks, and since I'm new anyway, I figured I could use the basic practice. I like the way this super bulky yarn is working up fast on size 13 needles. Of course the sides are curling, though you can't see it in the photo. I was going to add a crocheted edging to fix the curling, but I have to hunt down some more yarn. I should have known that would happen, but I was trying to use a yarn out of my stash. People always say that knit uses so much less yarn than crocheting, I was curious how long one skein would take me.
I have other projects pending on my WIPs list, I have to:
add an edging to an afghan and add it to the pattern.
sew a pocket onto a tote bag and write the pattern.
sew a strap onto a different tote bag and tweak the pattern.
assemble a stack of motifs into a project (I can't tell you! I wish I could!)
write a different afghan pattern out from my notes (which I'm dreading)
I started a bolero jacket from Crochet Today, but I just don't know about it....
Of course make more scarves for the challenge!
And I have several things in my head to design...some sketched out, some not.
My list has been longer in the past, it has been shorter. I've got a soccer game today, so I'll take something with me. Maybe an afghan, it's getting down to a frigid 67 degrees today! Compared to our 100 degree summer, that's going to feel cold. I already have jeans on. The first jeans of the fall!
