What’s on my needles?

My pink socks are coming along slower than I would like but at least there is progress. Yes, this is still the first sock of the pair! At least it is going faster than the last pair! I would like to knit 6 pair of socks this year.

And I also started working on this again:

You are quite forgiven if you cannot tell what this is. It doesn’t look like anything right now!  It is made from yarn that looks like this:

I bought this yarn a few months ago because I loved the colors. I did not know how to use it but the label said I could make a scarf from one skein. Hmmm….not the way I knit it the first time! I liked the way it looked but, of course, when I went back a second skein was not to be had. So it languished in the yarn bin for a while. Yesterday, I decided to look for a Youtube video to show me the right way to knit this.You can see the vidoe here. Not so hard when you can see what you are supposed to do! It will be a ruffle scarf. The yarn ended up a bit kerfluffled when I raveled the first attempt but at this point, I haven’t anything to lose.

You can see what others are knitting by checking out Judy’s Linky Party at her blog, Patchwork Times here.

Until next time…

  1. Love the color of your sock! I know what you mean about the scarf pattern. I was asked by a friend to help her figure out her pattern and we ended up watching the online video, too.

    Love the color of your pink socks. Sometimes I can zip through a pair of socks in a few weeks and other times, it takes months to finish a pair. Don’t despair!

    I love you tube tutorials. A couple ladies in my knit group have used the same yarn. Your scarf will be beautiful!
