off the needles




I was just discussing with my younger seestor how I feel about journals. We were having a nice dinner at a Thai restaurant, with one of her friends who will be leaving the Emerald City soon, and the topic came up. Clearly a blog is kind of like a journal. The reason I stopped keeping a journal was becuase if you go back and read it, it seems ridiculous- even if you just wrote it. I suppose the point is to just write it out, but still, that's hard to take. I was going to start a new paragraph here, but apparently that's not going to happen- haven't figured that out yet. So, off the needles is the Debbie Bliss silk scarf for said sister. It took two skeins and is over 6 foot long. It was easy to knit. I hope my sis likes it, I am annoyed with the "rolling" of the edges. I know that scarves will do that, but it was very minor in the picture, so I thought it wouldn't be that bad. The recipient claims she likes the rolling. We blocked it out, so that my have improved the rolling, but I haven't asked her yet. Grey's Anatomy is tonight : )

Knitting news......


I recently got serious about trying to squeeze in some knitting time when I could. Unfortunately, the first "hog" was made because my elder elf was sick and I was keeping her company while she was sleeping. The second one was to keep things fair for the tiny elf! I love the way they turned out....the pattern is FiberTrends. There are lots of short rows and the second one has lots of mistakes, but felting makes it all better : )
