Heather's scarves

Here are two scarves I finished for my best friend Heather. Her birthday was this month, and she would have turned 28. She died in a car accident on the way back from our senior (high school senior) Disneyland trip together. I knit them for her Mom and myself so we could wear them and remember her.

I presented them to her Mom today and she picked the more narrow one. She was touched by the thoughtful gift. Happy Birthday, Heather.


Such a cutie!

I couldn't resist taking a picture of Macy all cuddled up in her blanket. Too cute!

Finally done

I finally finished the blue fuzzy sweater. It's too big. But it was a good experience to get the whole thing done. I'm not sure yet if I'm going to take it out or give it away. I might make a scarf out of it. I just don't know yet.


Twenty inches

I didn't think I was another six inches along, but I guess so. It's getting to be a challenge to stuff it into the bag. It's quite fluffy!

Macy has been so clingy lately! But who could resist her? I wish the lighting was better. I'll get my husband's help next time. He's the photographer of the family.

Scarf out of leftovers

I had some leftover black chenille from the scarf for my sister-in-law, so I thought I'd try a moss stitch scarf for myself. I'm using size 3 needles to get a closer weave. But I'm getting really bored with it. I feel really stressed with three projects on the needles, and one needing to be sewn. It's not even relaxing to work on the blanket anymore. I know some people love having ten or twenty projects going at once, but I think my limit is closer to five. Plus I have other craft projects circling around in my head wanting to get out and worked on.

So I'm just going to push through and finish a project. I'm thinking about trying to finish the blue sweater. A friend at the knitting group urged me to bring it to the group to work on the seams. But I'm kinda itching to start it this week. Maybe tomorrow I'll start.

On to socks!

I thought I should try knitting some socks. I saw someone knitting with two circular needles at the knitting group, and she made it look so easy! So far, so good. She suggested size 1 needles. We'll see how they turn out. I might end up knitting tighter on later socks or I might go down a size.

I picked this yummy brown color mix to go with some new clog-like shoes. I don't have any brown socks for them yet.
