Me and my obsession has come a long way since last couple of years... I definitely still consider myself a beginner and always looking to improve my obsession. I think it is my "CALGON"... It takes me away from my busy life with a wonderful husband and 8yo twin boys... YIKES!!! I never understood how addicting yarn could be until I started knitting.. I have crochet for some time on and off but I never felt attached to it as I do with knitting...

Mom's Scarf Finished!!!!

My mother had a bunch of yarn laying around while we were wrapping Christmas presents. There was a bag that hasn't been touched in over a month so I opened it...hehe She liked how I made the first sideways scarf and bought this yarn. I told her to give it to me and I will make the scarf.. She didn't want to part with the yarn (she thought I would keep it for myself...LOL!!!) I told her that I would knit it up for her and give it back...

WELL, I finished it and I do have to say so myself that it came out beautiful!!!!! I really do want to keep it for myself but it will be going to her house tomorrow before I change my mind..

These are the easiest scarves to make... I Casted On 140 stitches on a 13 needles and knitted the scarf in a garter stitch... These are so easy and fun to do... I will probably make myself one in brown and pink to match my suede coat...hehe

NOW, I get to work on my "To DO" list for 2006....YEAH!!!! I can knit at my own leisure...hehe I just don't know what I am in the mood for... I really can't get much knitting done this week with the boys out of school but I will be checking out my patterns to write down what I am interested in...

What are you thinking about working on in the coming year???? (Give me some pointers...hehe)

    That scarf is beautiful, I love the colors. I would have a hard time parting with it too. Happy New Year to you and your family!

    Thank you!!! She really loved it!!! My dad was actually impressed also... With doing the scarf on larger needles, it really does stretch out to be a pretty long scarf... The colors really set it off... I did give it to her but it was definitely a struggle. Ü
