The Joy of Scarves


So, I finished my tank. Totally unhappy with it. The short row shaping is wrong, the overall length is too long, the straps sit wide on my shoulders, and the fitting is either too small or too big. What to do, what to do? That's been my knitting life lately. Eventually I will rip and then reknit making some modifications to the pattern.

I've been inspired to work on some wips and ufos. I have so many stash projects and so many future stash projects just waiting to join my wannabe yarn shop in my garage. I have been working on an afghan slowly. Don't like it, but its a gift. So, I hit my bins and found some lovely Berroco Optik. Knit up a scarf last night. Worked a row or two on the afghan today. Found some Fabu and knit up a scarf today. I think I have enough to knit up another one so I'm going to start on another one tonight.

I feel like I'm accomplishing some with my knitting. In reality, its like a drop in a bucket.... errr a drop in a rain barrell. Lol.

As a side note, I have a fan! My hubby tells me that he's glad my fantasy shop doesn't exist. Too funny. I guess I will have to hide my yarn indiscretions even from my blog. Just kidding, really honey, that yard sized trash bag of yarn has alwaaaays been there. snicker.

I'm going to have to save for you trip! I can show you how to make the scarf when you come. Don't know if we'll be able to find the yarn though, I got it on clearance about 2 years ago. So excited for your visit. Tattoos and yarn, sigh, life is good.
