I know you all have a burning desire to see what exactly I have been up to.... so here goes!Finished a pair of socks.... the first in a long while... have about 3 pair half-finished, but haven't had the desire to pick them up lately. These are the first really patterned socks I have done and I really like how they turned out.
I am a part of a small bible study that meets at my home on Monday mornings. I picked up some of this cotton thread (that came in handy for our ornament exchange) and knitted some bookmarks for the 3 ladies that attend. Have to say that I really like them, though. I was unsure of how they would turn out. After blocking them, I starched them with a nice hot iron and it gave them enough stiffness to have a real feeling about them. They are a bit fiddly to knit, but I may make some more. (the ball of cotton thread is, I swear, never ending).
And, finally a scarf. A friend here has been begging for ages for me to knit her up a cotton scarf-as she is allergic to everything else. Here is how it turned out.
I like it, but do find scarves to be agonizingly repetitive. That being said, I am working on another scarf now. This one, though is a pretty lace one. With a ruffle. :-) Hopefully I will finish it before I get horribly bored and it is tossed in the basket never to be seen or heard from again......
