On My Needles - 3/1/2103

I have really enjoying picking up a yarn project here and there to work on at night while I watch tv!  My latest project is my Shore Thing scarf, which is now finished!


It turned out just gorgeous!!!  I love these colors, very bright and happy, which was just what I needed to help get through these gray days we've been having this winter.  It's really soft and drapes beautifully too!  I'm planning to make a pair of hand warmers as well with the leftover yarn.  Hopefully we won't have enough cold weather left this year, so they will be something new and pretty to wear next year :*)

I really wanted another project to work on after this, and I liked the Sugar and Cream Cowl that Judy recently finished up (see hers HERE), so I meandered over to Ravelry and purchased the pattern.

Isn't this color gorgeous???  This cowl is not mine - it was made by knittedblissjc
This is a design by Alana Dakos, and you can find it HERE :*)  Then I meandered over to Joann's and bought this black fingering weight wool blend to make one for me!


This is more black than it shows here, but not a deep black, more of a deep charcoal black.  I always go for color, but in coats and things I often wear black, so I thought black would be a good color that would go with everything.  I also wanted something solid so it would show up the nice cabling.  Of course, I hope my knitting skills are up to it!!!

I purchased my first-ever pair of circular needles - new skills here folks!!!!



Then while I was there and several of the yarns were on sale, I went ahead and picked up a couple skeins of this scrumptious fuchsia pink with a twinkly little sparkle in it.....


so I can make one of these....

This is called the Swishy Scarf.  It can be found in the book, Cute and Easy Crochet by Nicki Trench.  Here are more options for wearing this lovely crocheted scarf....

  5. Shore Thing is just beautiful. Won't you look slim in that? : )
    I think that charcoal black cowl is a great idea--my coats are often black, too.
    Wow, that is a delicate, lacy looking scarf you are going to tackle. Very pretty!
