Finally! Some progress!!! 46 inches of progress!!!
I know that a ton of people have commented about how boring it is to knit because its miles and miles of knit one purl one knit one purl one knit one purl one but I don’t mind it too much. Its football and basketball season so I can sit and watch a game and mindlessly knit on it.
However, this thing is eating up some yarn something serious. Naively (apparently), I only bought two skeins of yarn to make this scarf – one each of Abstract and Spectrum (Red Heart Boutique Treasure) – and started knitting. And knitting and knitting and knitting. Then one day I was reading on the KAL board and I noticed that someone bought four skeins of yarn. FOUR? Say whaaaaa?
I looked down at my two skeins and said to myself…”Shit. I’m not going to have enough yarn to make this as long as I want.”
But then I thought “Ohhhh, I get to buy yarn. Word.” Off to the craft store!
I’m about 46 inches in and still working on with my original skeins. Hopefully I will only have to use a little bit of the second set of skeins and have more than enough to maybe make a matching hat using the Turn a Square beanie pattern. THAT WILL BE CUTE RIGHT!!! You know, for the three days out of the year I will be able to wear them as a set. Cuz really, it was in the high 80’s today and it’s NOVEMBER.
Speaking of keeping warm and toasty, I’m also working on a quilt!
So how happenin’ is my quilt top? I used a Kona Cotton Solids fabric jelly roll called Silent Film (Robert Kaufman Fabrics) from Material Girl Chic on Etsy and this video tutorial to make this bad boy. SUPER FAST AWESOMENESS!!! Like four hours maybe? I still have the backing, binding and the actually quilting to take care of, but whoa! A quilt top! SUPER PLEASED.
But, as much as I love the quilt top, I love the look on Bailey’s face even more – “WHAT?!” Heeheehee…he cracks me up.
One last thing…not a project but a purchase. A sexy purchase! Heeeeheheheehehehe…
I finally bought my second set of Knit Picks interchangeable circulars – HARMONY STYLE! These babies FINALLY went on sale and I immediately bought them. They are so gorgeous and so nice and I want to cast on something new so I can get to using them. And don’t think I didn’t consider doing just that (almost cast on the Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief to be exact). But, alas, I showed some self control and kept on knitting on my striped scarf.
Look at me! Self control!…….Oh look! Chocolate chip shortbread cookies!
