This time of the year, I almost always get the desire to knit. Whether I knit something is a different story. However, this time I really wanted to complete a project. But, wasn't sure what to knit. I wasn't keen on another scarf because frankly, that is all I knit. See, I haven't graduated from scarves yet. So, I decided I need to add to my knitting repertoire.
I ended up enrolling in Stephanie Japel's Knitting Lab and Hats Four Ways on craftsy. Side note, I am becoming a craftsy junkie. I'll tell you more about that later. One of the projects in the knit lab, is a key hole scarf. This project introduces you to lace, which is something I want to learn. So, I knitted another scarf. But it's different from what I have knitted in the past. Simple garter stitch scarves with novelty yarns.
This scarf went fast. Working in small amounts of time, I had it completed in a week. I have to say, I feel fulfilled. LOL!! Next, I plan on making a matching hat. The yarn I selected comes in a bulky weight. This is the weight I need for the hat in the Knit Hats 4 Ways class.
Here are a few stats on the scarf.
Yarn: Swish Merino Wool from knitpicks
Needle: US 7
Stitches: knits, purls and yarn overs.
On the sewing front, wrapping up my navy pants. One of three pairs I want to make for the Fall.
Until next time..........keep sewing!!
