Another week - A New Project

A baby afghan will be this weeks project

My friend Judy is having her first baby, so a perfect gift would be a cozy baby blanket.

Oh, it’s going to be a girl...and I hope to be able to help spoil her.

I found a crochet pattern that I thought would be perfect, so I spent next three days crocheting away. Well, I just don’t like the look, and decided it was time to start all over, and this time I found aknitting pattern that fitmy needs.

With a big project like this, I decided that I needed to break up my time, and also create some jewelry for my ArtFire online shop. Well, I completed six copper cuff bracelets, copper coiled earrings, and three Peruvian threaded earrings.

The baby afghan is going very slowly, so I decided to also work on a seven eleven scarf to give my eyes a break and add some color into my project. Hopefully I’ll be further along on but of these projects next week. I really need to get the scarf into the mail, and the baby should be here just before Christmas...

More next week .....

Another Project - Another Scarf

The project again this week was a Potato Chip Scarf, I decided again to use a yarn I’ve selected in the past, I love the warmth of the hues of this yarn, and it is such a beautiful design.

So next week I’ll be starting a new project, and it won’t be a scarf....

One Week - Two Projects Completed

This weeks project was another Potato Chip Scarf, I just love this pattern...

Not quite sure why the pattern is called "The Potato Chip Scarf", maybe it's the ruffles, as in "ruffles have ridges" or better yet, you just can't make one.

Certainly I just cant make one, I've seemed to make two this week alone, and another in the planning. Hopefully they will keep there new owners nice a cozy warm, it looks like we might have a cold winter.

This Week's Project!

I finished this week's project and I think that my next project will be another scarf knit in the potato chip pattern, in this same yarn. I just love the rich warm colors.

Both of the projects from these last two weeks are on there way to a new home, where there are sure to help keep out the New York winter cold.

Last Weeks Project!

Now that I've retired it's time to have some fun. I'm still getting up at 4 a.m., still cleaning house, doing a lot of cooking and just taking it easy. I've been cleaning out the closets, and getting things in order, but most of all finding time to do what I want to do, not what I have to do....

It's been a long time since I've taken the time to knit, so with fall here and the weather getting cooler I felt that this would be the perfect time to make this cute scarf.
