So, I guess my attempt at keeping up a regular blog isn't going so well...oops. Well, I suppose I will just have to keep trying.
Oh la la, what have I made since my last post in June? Lots - and if you are friends with me on Facebook, you would have seen it all because I take pictures of all my projects! Maybe I'll blog about some of them another time (sooner, rather than later, hopefully!). But today's topic? Infinity scarves!
Yes, I have fallen in love with one pattern in particular: http://stingystitcher.blogspot.com/2011/10/infinity-scarf-once-again.html
Apparently, the blogger came up wtih the pattern after seeing a scarf at Forever 21. I changed it slightly by doing a quad stitch instead of a treble stitch and by using an N (9 mm) hook. The scarves that I have been making are about 5 feet long before I stitch the ends together and can wrap around three times. Last week, in our wonderful -40C weather, I wore mine wrapped three times and it completely saved me!
Here are some pics:
wrapped three times
...and a new one for me. This one was made with 3 skeins of Vanna's Choice yarn in Taupe Mist. That Vanna White - who would have thought she would have her own brand of yarn? Lucky duck.
P.S. This one is my new favourite scarf.
And there you have it folks - my first post in many, many months! Now hopefully, it won't take quite as long to post again!
(Thanks to my friend, Quyen, at http://www.designsbyq.com/ for making me write a post tonight!)
