On the Needles - 1/4/13

While it was wonderful to have a day off during the week, it has thrown me off for the last part of my week. Wednesday, it felt like Thursday to me. Thursday, it felt like Friday. Today being Friday, I really don't feel like I should be getting ready for work, but that's what I am doing - or will be doing momentarily. I just want to go back to bed!

Instead of working on my sock this week to get the toe done and get it off the needles to start the match to the pair, I bought new yarn last Saturday and have been slowly working on that all week.

Here is my sock - still in the same state.

And here is what I have been working on. The yarn is Sashay and is purple, red and orange and is knitting up into a ruffle scarf. I had a little trouble figuring out how to knit with this yarn. When I first started, the sides were just laying upon the one before in a cone-ish manner and not at all ruffle-y.

This yarn did take a little getting used to. I had been knitting back and forth and have since starting wrapping the lace around few stitches on the needle and it seems to be working now.

Is it hard to make one of those scarves, I have a cousin that loves those and I thought about making her one

Pretty colors for the scarf, but that type of yarn scares me. I'll stick with the traditional type of yarn. How long is your scarf going to be?

Love the scarf. I made one of these for my mom and it was easy, but I don't think I will be working with that yarn again...just not my cup of tea...hope you get your sock done soon.

I love the look of that scarf. It looks like it would be hard but then again, I'm not a knitter. LOL! My MIL crocheted me a scarf for Christmas out of some really soft brown yarn and I love it. It is the best gift that she has ever given me. LOL!

Have a wonderful and Blessed day
