Sky Scarf Saturday 8/2/2014

I haven’t done a Sky Scarf Saturday update since June (eep!) and it’s August now. The summer has flown by so quickly. The seasons are really showing in my scarf and I love the neon pops.

It’s currently around 33 inches and it’s half done. I’m not sure if only making it for 2014 will be long enough for my liking. It might take longer to make, which is depressing because I really, really want to wear it ASAP. Patience, grasshopper.

 

 

Sky Scarf Saturday 6/7/2014

It’s been a while since my last Sky Scarf Saturday. I had to catch up on a couple weeks worth of knitting this morning due to the busyness of finishing up school, moving out, and starting my new job.

But I’ve got exciting news for you: It reached a high temperature of above 86 degrees this past week, which meant I got to unravel my skein of neon yarn this morning.

Although it is a bit of annoyance to add back colors I haven’t used in a while, I love the randomness of how singular stripes look against a mostly dark or light background. I’m totally geeking out over the nerdiness of this scarf.

Fall Spirit

It’s been a long time since I wrote something about knitting.

IMG_2672I’m a sucker for impulse projects. This took me about a week, but a couple days too late to wear to regular football game. Maybe this Saturday will be cold enough to show this off at the Delaware-Villanova game. (Find the pattern here.)

The pattern is written flat, but it’s was easy enough to translate it into the round. I’ve been hooked on fair isle color work since I made my first fair isle hat last winter.
