The winter-time always makes me want to get out some yarn and this winter was no different. And so here is a small project I just completed, a little scarf for Sophia…
I bought this yarn last year and actually had crocheted a hat for the girls, but it was so chunky the hat looked funny, so I unraveled it and knitted a scarf instead. It took a while to figure out how I wanted to knit it up, but after many attempts I decided that a garter stitch suited the yarn the best and as a bonus, the size I wanted was only 9 stitches across! And I learned how to do a crochet cast-off, which resulted in a nice braid end which matched the other end which was nice.
So I’m pleased with this quick and easy project. And I’m a girl who likes quick and easy. I get bored easily and although once I did knit a vest (it was awful) I can’t see me every attempting to knit a sweater because I would lose interest after a few rows. I can say that in all honesty because of this…..
A crocheted afghan that I started probably 13 years ago and is still not finished!!!! It’s embarrassing really. Back when I started it years and years ago, it was supposed to be for Jason and I had matched the colours to a fleece that he gave me and I thought that would just be so nice. Well it was rather nice in a way, wasn’t it?
So this baby got pulled out of the crawl-space a few weeks ago when I was de-cluttering and I decided that I am storing it no longer! I refuse! But then I ended up with a dilemma because what does one do with an unfinished afghan? I guess I’m just going to have to finish it, I must. So even though I’ve only averaged 6 rows a year, I’m happy to report that I am close to finishing it and this is going to be the year it gets done.
But then that brings me to another question, what do I do with it when I do finish it? We don’t need any more throws around here and I don’t think Jason has any emotional attachments to it, although he does bug me mercilessly about it every time he sees it. I guess if it actually does get done this year, it will be up for grabs. So if anyone wants it just let know. If no one wants it, I just can’t say what will happen to it… and the poor thing really does deserve a good home.
Well I better get back to it, with another thaw coming tomorrow my winter urge to knit or crochet might leave me and we can’t have that!
