It doesn’t seem like I have been getting much done on or off the needles over the last few weeks but, yes, I have. I actually have been doing a little charity knitting. Some of which I mentioned in my last post about making squares for the comfort blanket for Jenn. I also like to take part in our “scarf, hat and mitten tree” that we have every year at our work place for the local Goodfellows charity organization. I usually crank out a few scarves or hats. I donated four this year. I also knit a few extra quickie gifts for some friends, so I cranked out a total of eight scarves as shown, all rolled up like sushi and tied with ribbon! I used the Lion Brand “Two Hour Scarf” pattern and each scarf uses one skein of Lion Brand Homespun yarn. I know a lot of knitters really HATE Homespun yarn but I have never had any problems with it.
I also managed to finish the “at work” Jaywalkers. It seemed like it took me an eternity to finish them but I only work on them on my lunch hour so of course by doing a few rows at a time it really does take an eternity. How do you guys like those colors! Whoo hoo…I said they were bright! So in to the wash they will go and I will be able to show them off next week. I also finished a Panta headband for another co-worker who was kind enough to give me rides to work when my husband’s car was out of commission. I just need to seam it up and that will be finished. Still plucking away on the Ruffles scarf and haven’t even thought about the Kevat shawl. I am contemplating casting on a pair of “at home” socks. I’m feeling the need for a speedy pair of socks, nothing to complicated but fun…any suggestions?
