NEW PROJECT! A COWL.

Today our little group got together for our every few weeks or so gathering. Laura made some delicious stew and we all worked on various projects. I worked for a bit on my hitchhiker scarf then started my new project.

I bought the yarn for this project awhile ago and started a different cowl with it (project #4 that I blogged about on 10/3) and didn’t like it, you couldn’t see the pattern so well on this dark yarn. So today I ripped that out and started a new cowl, in the round. Mostly I’m posting this just so I can remember what I’ve done!  Here is a picture of it so far today (edited: sorry, pics got lost in blog transfer!). The yarn color is hard to capture!  The color is called “Lapis”.

I cast on 160 stitches on size 6 needles. My plan is to do stockinette stitch broken up every so often with some eyelets.  So far my plan with the eyelets is about an inch in I made some eyelets by K6, K2tog, yo on repeat. I’ll probably offset the next ones in another 7 or 8 rows.

I’ll keep you updated.

WORKS IN PROGRESS – A DAY LATE

Wow. Time flies when you are having fun…or something.

Thought I would do a little update.

Ive been busy with cleaning around the house. I inherited a new couch and cabinet and have been rearranging things. I also have started tackling the pit that is our office.  I compiled all my craft supplies into one receptacle and put away my yarn boxes, finally. Turns out I have a lot of both craft supplies and yarn. Who knew?

My crafty projects are:

1) Super secret knitting project I haven’t worked on in awhile.  Need motivation!

2)  Corner to corner baby blanket. I’m about 2/3rds done with it.

3)  Laura and I are both working on Hitchhiker scarves that we started a couple weeks ago.  We were perusing our local yarn shop, which just moved and merged with another yarn shop, and decided we would both buy a skein (hank?) of new yarn and try a new pattern. Neither of us has put a lot of work into it but we are both plugging along. Evidence?  Ok!

Time to go do some more cleaning!  Wooooooo…  Or knitting. That sounds like more fun.
