With the heat turned on to stay warm and comfy,
slippers on my feet, hot coffee next to the computer,
cheering that we have internet again (yep, we lost the holly signal yesterday),
I thought let’s check in and talk
Now this is not a knitting blog and you will never find a pattern how to knit something
from me, but since I am knitting away here à la carte,
I wanted to show you a great project I came across last week.
And before you ask, this is my little pink scarf for my youngest girl in progress last week….
The picture with the finished scarf will have to wait after the new year, I need more wool and since this wool is from Amsterdam, a sweet present from my mother in law
(she knew I was learning how to crochet and knit and she knows how I love pink and white)
I need to get back there first to get some more wool.
Now if you are new here, this whole knitting thing will not ring a bell….
But if you know me personally or you are reading my blog for awhile, you’ll understand that finishing a real hand knitted scarf by myself is an achievement to me and I’m willing myself everyday to finish it,
so to be continued….
This is the project from Leaf Cutter Designs and I think it’s such a fun thing to do, I had to show it to you.
It’s a Cloud Scarf, how creative is that huh?
Everyday you knit one row the same colour as the sky.
(and a row is one way and another one going back…..yeh, I know, to me it also sounds like two rows,
but in knitting terms it’s one whole row…..you’re still with me?)
You can look at the video on the site how it is done.
So this scarf is a project you can start on the first of the new year,
after all the champagne, but you can also start any date you like and continue to do so for a whole year
(or shorter) and have a 2012 Cloud Scarf.
I think it’s a cool idea!
So for now I shall love you and leave you,
see you after the weekend mes amis!
