cowls & scarfs  

I cast off on Indy’s scarf-not-a-scarf-way-too-short-totally-a-cowl-that’s-what-i-meant-it-to-be last week and today nerved myself up to try stitching it together to see if it would make a cowl or if I in fact had to tear the whole thing out and do it again. So I stopped halfway up the seam to see if it would fit over Indy’s head, and he loved it that way:

So I’ve declared it done. O.O :)

I started a scarf for me. (This will actually be a scarf, I have enough yarn.) The point of pride with this was successfully knitting a second color into the scarf so, woo woo, I’m very impressive!

I have big ambitious plans to make a matching scarf/hat/mittens set with this sparkly black and blue yarn. :)

My mother-in-law and a friend who knits came to visit for a couple of weeks, and the friend has left me a big pile of yarn that she brought with her but didn’t do anything with while she was here. I have thoughts for a couple of the yarns (at least a couple more scarves; look, I’m not wildly ambitious here right now, okay?) and I’m sorta chuffed to have the stuff to experiment with, so it’ll be fun over the next several months. Or more. :)

Indy is getting so big! Clearly I have been following this blog too long :-)

Awesome! Looks like you're doing well with the striping too. You can do all sorts of neat things with just that trick, like illusion knitting.

How absolutely brilliant of me!

(...what do we mean by 'striping'?)

I did ponder if I should type stripe-ing *grin* I meant the two colors in the second project. I remember finding it a bit daunting the first time that I did such a thing when I was learning.

That's what I THOUGHT you meant but then I thought maybe there was some Sekrit Knitting Term I wasn't familiar with. :) <3
