Knitty Heart Scarf Posted by Hello

Knitty Heart Scarf

Yarn: Rowan Big Wool

What I Learned: PSSO, three needle bind-off, more work on lacey stuff, blocking

Comments: I made this for my mom for Christmas. I love the Rowan yarn! It is great to hold. This knit fairly quickly, and I think the heart pattern is beautiful. Even though I blocked it, it still curls some on the edges.

Knitting 102 Class Project

Name: Face cloth

Yarn: 100% cotton Rowan DK (I'm not sure of the name)

What I leared: Lacy knitting, increases & decreases

Comments: Because I don't use washcloths, I'm going to send this to my Grandma Isabel. I write to her about my knitting every week, so I think she will like to see the fruits of my labor.

Stitch n Bitch Coney Island Firework Scarf

Yarn: Lamb's Pride Cotton Fleece - Barn Red & Cotton Ball
Plymouth Yarn Dazzlelash

What I Learned: Knit holding two yarns at the same time

Comments: I made a red and a white one of these as Christmas presents. The red one is for Aunt Lana, and the white one is for Christine (white for the bride). I LOVE how this scarf drapes and feels. The eyelash yarn gives it a feather boa effect. Very diva-ish!

Stitch n Bitch Nation

I just received the new Stitch n Bitch nation book in the mail today. I can't wait to get started! My problem is, I have such a back-log of projects I don't know when I can get cracking on the SNB stuff. I may need to re-prioritize.

Also, I bought new containers for my stash. It's scary how much it has grown (see comment on back-log).

New magazine

I have been anticipating the new Vogue Knitting magazine that they are putting out for 20 & 30 something knitters. I finally got my paws on it today at Barnes and Noble. It's called Knit.1, and I would definitely recommend it. It has tons of cool patterns, most of which are on the beginner and easy level. I can't wait to knit the roses. I also love the "Knitters Rule" vest. That is listed as an experienced knitter pattern, but I may give it a go.

First post

In looking for free knitting patterns, I came across a lot of these blogs. I decided to join the bandwagon and create my own. I think it is a neat way to keep track of your projects. Who knows, maybe I'll add some personal stuff too.
