How is everyone today? It is the 3 month anniversary of my blog. I still have a lot to learn and pretty soon I need to re-format everything on the page, but so far so good. I love the response I have gotten from everyone and I have made some new friends out there in cyberland. Blogging has really helped me get more organized and to finish up the projects I start. That is a really good thing. My stash is shrinking and my WIP pile is almost gone. Another good thing since I love starting new projects.
This week the weather is starting to turn. We have had such a strange year with the weather. Last winter was really cold. We had a few weeks of below zero (farenheit) and then our normal hot and humid summer. September was really cold. Then October and November were relatively mild. Not sure what we are in for this winter. I might get in trouble for saying this but I love the snow and am waiting for it to come.
As I said, it is starting to get cold. On the days leading to Black Friday I kept seeing a scarf on the ads for Kohl's department store. I loved it and looked online to try to see a better picture of it. They didn't have it featured anywhere on the stores sits. The woman in the ad was wearing it and dancing around. Every time the ad came on I would see it and want it. I went in the store for a closer look and they didn't have it. Believe me, I don't like going to department stores, so you know I really wanted this scarf. What's a crafty girl to do? I made one from my memory of what I saw. I got this yarn at Hobby Lobby, where else. I spend way to much time in that place. They have a few lines of yarn and this one is Yarn Bee, the color is Lovely.
Attic24 says some colors are your soul colors. They are the ones you naturally go to. Well, green and purple are mine, my sister's, my brother's and my Dad's. I love pink too, I really do, but green and purple together have always been my favorites. When I was in my early 20's all three of us kids lived with my Dad. A friend of my sister asked us if those were our family colors. I always thought that was funny. So, do you like my scarf? I love it. It was easy peasy to make. I chained until it was long enough. Then I did one row of hdc, one row of sc, one row hdc, one row sc. Then 3 rows dc, one row sc, one row dc, one sc. Three more rows of dc. Then one row sc, one row hdc, one row sc and the last row hdc. No counting. Very simple and I have gotten comments on it in every place I went yesterday.
Now for some more yarn love. I came home Wednesday night and there was a parcel waiting. From England. What could it be? Autumn knows me so well, she said "Mommy, I think you got some yarn in the mail". I have never gotten yarn in the mail before so that made me laugh. She was right. Deramores sent me my Lucy Pack, or Attic24 Pack.Whatever you want to call it, I love the yarn. I am making myself finish the Christmas stuff before I do anything with it. For now I get to look at it and admire it. Here is my pack of 17 balls of Stylecraft dk yarn.
I am almost done with another cardigan and will post tomorrow or the next day with photos. Happy Friday everyone.
