TGIF! Is everyone ready for Superbowl weekend? With my Pats not in it this year, things aren't quite as exciting in our household. We'll still be watching, of course, and checking out all of the commercials as usual. Hopefully I can get some good knitting time in!
Last Sunday I worked on my section of a Traveling Scarf for cancer patients through ConnieCaps. The traveling scarves were started over on Instagram, but you don't need an Instagram account to participate, so check them out if you're interested!
I was third on this particular scarf. When I went stash diving to find yarn to use, I actually found a pretty darn perfect skein of Berroco Softwist that I didn't even remember having (I'm sure I'm not the only person who can't remember buying half of what's in her stash now, am I?).
I worked my section in a honeycomb/hive stitch pattern and although it resulted in less than perfect edges, I think it looks pretty cool. And I love the texture of it!
The fourth person on the list for this scarf is a friend of mine who is local, so I handed it off on Tuesday after helping her to choose a super pretty green yarn at the shop where I work part time. I can't wait to see what she does... and then after her section, it's going to another mutual friend in Maine. After that, it's off to Canada, Singapore, Germany, and several parts of the good 'ole USA. I love this idea and plan to hop aboard another one soon!
I haven't made much progress on my first Honey Cowl, but here's what 220 stitches after just a few rows looks like. I am absolutely loving working with the Cascade EcoDuo!
I've got a little Flickering Thistle scarf on the needles in Cascade Souk. Here it is 2 repeats in.
I think I'll get back to my Mom's fingerless gloves this weekend and hopefully get more rounds worked on my Honey Cowl. What's on your Superbowl knitting agenda?
