Well this week has seen me bouncing around from one project to another like "a BB in a box car" as my sainted Dad would say. Focus has never been my strong suit. At lunch about 2 weeks ago, my friend Stephie was working on one of those ruffly scarves and it motivated me to dig out the yarn she gave me last year at Christmas (yeah I'm speedy like that) and knit one up for me.
I only did it 5 stitches wide and it came out real looooooooonngggg - about 6 feet.
I love the colors - like a fiesta - orange, hot pick, turquoise and of course yellow!
And when I went looking for that scarf yarn I came across this unfinished pair of socks. And they are yellow - imagine that- LOL! I have no idea why I put them away. I even had the second sock started.
I don't know what the yarn is. All I remember is that my friend Laurey dyed it for me at a LYS a couple of summers ago. I love the color!
The pattern is called Carolina, Last Queen of Naples - okay, that's a mouthful. It is free and you can find it here. It is an easy pattern to remember - row 1 has some yarnovers and K3tog but the other rows are just knit or purl. I saw this pair that I like a lot. I hope I can figure out what Crazy Zauberball she used.
Well I still have stuff to finish up for Christmas. There is grocery shopping and I am continuing to have issues with the demon tree....yes more lights have gone out!! This tree is going to have a date with a wire cutter before it is returned to its box in the storage room.
