First WIP of 2013

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season and 2013 has found all of you healthy and well.  I know I've slacked on my posts during the month of December and there hasn't been a dishcloth pattern in what seems like forever.  I'm working on some Valentine themed cloths and hope to have at least one of them out in the next couple weeks.  In the meantime, I've found some fantastic scarf projects that I just had to share with you.

I found this "pattern" on Ravelry back in December and knew it had to be done immediately following Christmas knitting.  How fabulous is all this color?!


The pattern is called "My Favourite Things" Infinity Scarf and can be found here.  The term "pattern" is used loosely because this scarf is about creating something with all of YOUR favorite things.  The pattern does, however, give some basic fair isle motifs and helpful links with tutorials on provisional cast on, kitchener stitch and stranded knitting.

As the author has done, I'll be using Vanna's Choice yarn.  I've made more than a few runs to both Michael's and JoAnn Fabrics over the past few weeks (utilizing coupons, of course!) to compile these colors:

  • Beige
  • Magenta
  • Mustard
  • Eggplant
  • Rust
  • Kelly Green
  • Barley
  • Black
  • Sapphire
  • White
  • Cranberry
  • Aqua
  • Silver Grey

Even with 12 colors, it does take some planning to ensure that the colors are spaced far enough apart and the same color combinations are not used more than once (my own personal preference).

I've created some of my own charts, one of which is the palm tree chart below.  I have another I'm currently knitting, so I'll post that once I know that it works as I hope it will!

I've completed 3 charts so far, about 8".  I wish I had more time to work on this cowl...it's looking really fun!

The other scarf that has been a hot project on Ravelry is My Year In Temperatures scarf.  The idea is to use the daily temperatures from your town to create this scarf.  You only knit 2 rows a day, all year long.  I'm using the leftover stash yarn from My Favourite Things Cowl to make this.  I think can handle 2 rows a day and I'm really excited to see what the finished product will look like.  I have cast on 35 stitches and I will be knitting the scarf in seed stitch.  I think I'll post monthly updates on this one!

  2. I've been browsing online more than three hours nowadays, yet I never discovered any fascinating article like yours. It's beautiful value enough for me.
    In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material
    as you did, the web might be much more helpful than ever before.

    I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost
