Lest you think I have fallen behind on my creative endeavors I will share the latest.Welcome to the blocking of a scarf. I got this yarn at a thrift store a while back and I have no idea if it is wool or what it is. It is not as soft as acrylic yarn. So I thought I might try to felt it. But for now I am blocking it to see what it looks like as a scarf. I had to laugh at the shape it became as I was following a pattern from one of those calendar books that a friend gave me that has a new pattern for every day of the year...I just sat in front of the TV knitting while watching and obviously I'd drop stitches or gain stitches as I went without much notice. Therefore it has a very arty look to it (in my humble opinion). I love the colors and the eyelet pattern is hit and miss but I like it. Eyelets are made by a YO (yarn over) and then a knit stitch, K1 and then K2together. I have another ball which may just be enough to make a hat to match!
I'll show you what it looks like natural once it's dried and blocked.
PS: I got a very sweet appreciative thank you email from my fifteen year old GD who said she and everyone else who saw it said the collage I made her for her birthday was "awesome!" She said she "loves it".
That makes a grandma happy!
