The Forever Scarf......................Why oh Why is it taking me so long?????
My Daughter Terry has been waiting and waiting for me to send her a scarf... I don't know what it is with me and scarves... I have so many of them on needles but I have such a hard time getting them finished... I do a little and then start knitting something else.. I can make a sweater or a blanket or a shawl in less time then it takes me to Finish a darn little scarf..
What is it??? Do I just have a thing against scarves???
I think its the fact that they go on and on forever in the same stitch and the same number of stitches that it just gets me so darn BORED !!! It practically gives me Anxiety just thinking of it while I am knitting.. LOL.. I would almost rather clean the house than have to kit a scarf from start to finish... Well... ALMOST!!!
I did this one with a feather & fan bottom and then started stockinette stitch because I liked the feel of the yarn in St . Stitch..
I did garter on the ends so that it would not roll. BUT Guess What??? yes.. It rolls right up and it bothers me to no end...
I will continue to torture myself and get this thing finished so Terry can be warm up in Buffalo But I will not enjoy doing it...
I'm going to do another FAST one for her but this time I will use bulky yarn and BIG needles... It will be a shorter Torture Time...
Soooo I guess if you want me to knit you something... Don't expect a scarf....

Tomorrow Catherine and I are going to Smileys Hotel Sale in Plainview...
I will do my Best to Control My Urge to Buy Massive Amounts of Yarn to add To My Stash!!!! Ha.. Ohhhhhh yeaaaaaa !!!! :)

Hats Hats Hats !!!!!

I ahve been in a Hat Mood lately and here are some of My Toppers !!!
Nice and Bright, Right?? Guess it will make it easy to see where the kids are :)
One is for Felix and I made Sami's more "Girly"
I was up 'digging" into my age old Stash in the attic and Catherine commented about this antique yarn I had ... so I was "Thinking" Hummm.. I bet that would make some cute hats!!! And I think it did!!! The yarn is belonged to my stash that is at least 12 years old!!!! :)
Good Stash Busters!!!!

So.. My Daughter *April* sent me a photo of this Hat and said " Can you make me one?"
Well... I did the best I could.. Its a little different but more or less the same :) When I saw the photo I wasn't even sure that it was knitted... It looks like a stretch fabric hat but I think she will like this one.. I tried it on and it looks cute... Naturally it will look much better on April :)
I did a little rib becaue it was rolling too much but when its on you don't even notice the rib that much..
Anyway.. It goes off in the mail this week along with the other hats...
