I should really post more often...
Here is the scarf that I knit for the International Scarf Exchange. I sent it last Thursday and it went to Australia so it should be there in another week.
I have FINALLY finished the mauve horizontal herringbone scarf and just have to weave ends in. I think that I am also going to put a border of cream on it because the cast off edge is way too stretched even though I went down a needle size. Ugggh!!
I have chosen to frog my red rib and cable socks since I recieved red cabled goodness from my Sockapaloooza pal. It was actually quite chilly for the SAV last weekend and I wore socks. I am still churning along on my mottled brown socks. I have finished calf shaping I guess. I really have no idea how these will turn out. I'm making up the pattern as I go. Hopefully it won't be a mistake. I have also churned out more washcloths. Effortless, yet the most fantastic gift. A simple handknit so people will think that you really thought of them.
I am getting ready for basketball season. I have been inhaling projections and will be in Chapel Hill for the opening exhibiton game on Nov 1. I can't wait. The anticipation is really building here. I also hope that the Cardinals win and go to the World Series. One of their closers is a local and played in the local elite league. I think that Wainwright is the first and most famous of all the Chain boys that have been drafted.
I am also really focused on knitting home items. Like pillowcases and throws. I am wondering about the Knitpicks new yarn package for throws. I think that I would make Hill one in green or something. Maybe I should just make it in Peaches n Cream since its machine washable and I'm planning on making one for myself.
Well I have a ton of errands to run and have to head out to AASU to get readmitted for Spring...
