Infinity and Yarn Con!

Yarn Con is coming this weekend and I needed something new to sport to the event. Not too big, not too small; not too hot and not too cold. An infinity scarf sounded great and I always wanted one. Here it is blocking. Don't you love the colors?

Look at the length!  59"!

I will be taking an entrelac class finally so I can make an infinity scarf that has entrelac. We cannot forget shopping either. I cannot wait. Yarn Con is the best way to round up my spring break!!!!

Two Scores!

I finished my Abalone sweater!  I love it!
The yarn is Miss Babs Yowza What a Skein. This was score #1. Score #2 is of a spinning nature:
A vintage skein winder!  I got it an estate sale for, was it for it...$26!  I was so excited. Now, I am off to finish spinning some fiber. I also have some socks for the hubby on the needles and some stuff in the hopper too. Stay tuned!

County Fair Update

How could I forget to mention the results of the fair?  We'll, I got 3 first place ribbons and 2 second place ribbons!

I was so excited and happy!

Pointy Hats and Watermelons!

Hello!  Wow, summer is gone, school is back in, and I think my knitting mojo is back. I have made gifts for two baby showers in one month and moved to another town ALL IN THE SAME MONTH!!!  But, I have survived. Would you like to see the projects?  Of course:

Here is the Watermelon Sweater by Alana Dakos. This is the second one that I have made. Time and experience changes everything. 

This is a cute little hat that was a free pattern on Ravelry. 

I am also presently working on the Abalone sweater  it will take time, but I will post progress pics soon.

County Fair Waiting and Welted!

While waiting for my projects to be judged at the county fair, I decided to knit a hat for the winter. I loved the Welted Hat pattern from Knit Simple Fall 2013 and I had some handspun lying around. So, here it is:

It fits my hair and is WARM!  The yarns are BFL and Corridale, and I made it down to about 10-20 yards left!  See:

Whew!  Just made it!  Now to wait until tomorrow for the fair results!  I will let you know what happens!

Teal for the Summer

Here is a shawlette that I just finished.

It was the Kaana Shawlette pattern by Jennifer Weissman.  I did not want to do the leaves and did a picot bind off instead.  It came out nice.

Okay, what's next?  We shall see!
