Pride Scarf & More Squares

My Pride scarf is making itself known.

It's accumulating fans.

For details of its latest jaunt click here.


Scarf started off with me, then........

There has also been knitting.

Remember this?



'That' Blanket


Well. I became increasingly dissatisfied with it and put it on the back burner.

It's now been taken off the back burner and frogged.

This is its reincarnated self.

Well......kinda.


Maybe as a rebellion about turning 30 I've decided to 'play' with the yarn and see what I can come up with.

Also came up with these.

Neat, huh?

They seem to be co-operating with me and joining together nicely. Time will tell whether their good behaviour continues.


More Squares for The Art of Knitting Throw



Lovin' the stitch definition
Purdy, yes?

Honey Gold Scarf
Louise Harding: Fauve

Another Scarf

This time for my lovely colleague Sharon, who has brightened my day with her bubbly self on many occassions. Such sunshine cannot but beget a knitted something in return.

So, while I was in Lena's, just before dashing to the bus, I picked out colours that reminded me of Sharon.

Bright, energising and eye catching.

:D

They're lovely - purple, yellow and orange.......and still sitting on their lonesome waiting to be introduced to needles as a knitting project.

The yarn I picked up and took in order to bring my total up enough to pay by Laser won the jackpot.

It's a Louisa Harding yarn called Fauve.

The pattern I'm using is the drop stitch one by Ellen R. Marguilies from Debbie Stoller's Stitch'n'Bitch Nation .

It shows off the yarn well while also being an enjoyable knit.

Right.

That's me up-to-date with my projects.

I'm off to my leaba so that I'm all bouncy for my last day of my 29th year tomorrow.

I shall bounce on into The Wild Onion, show my passport, and ask Ruth, nicely, for my birthday cookie a day in advance. (They won't be open on my actual birthday).



Oh and Bettina, it may well be that you'll be finished your throws well before I am.

I seem to be swimming in squares with no hope yet of joining them up.

I shall duly keep you posted.

:)

Happy crafting folks.

P.s.

Copy Bettina and leave me comments!! :)

I'm working on squares of the crochet type at the moment. I love the colours of the ones above.
