Day 2 of Creativity
So for day 2 I started a new project. I totally forgot about my list. Silly girl.
I'm using some beautiful hand spun yarn. It's oh, so nice to work with. And I'm making this scarf, which is a free download from Lion Brand Yarn.
If you take a look at the pattern you'll see that I'm using yarn that is way thicker than what's in the pattern. I started working with some very fine Scrumptious yarn from Fyberspates. My fingers are just not configured for yarn that fine. It feels more like thread to me. I just may actually use it for embroidery or some such type of project.
I love, love, love the yarn I'm using though. It will suit me much better anyway.
This pattern is my first foray into knitting short rows. I really thought that it was way harder than it is. The truth is that it's totally easy. I feel so silly when I try things I've avoided because I thought they would be too hard to figure out.
Anyway, I guess I'll have to add this to my list now since it's not finished. Maybe I'll actually finish a few during this month. Here's hoping.
