As if you didn't know...But first I want to thank you all for your kind words and congratulations on Number One Son's college acceptance. It warmed my heart! We are so very excited for him and his future.....And now back to our regularly scheduled program....
Big Lace Scarf from More Last Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. She has another book called...wait for it...Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Bet you would have never guessed, huh? Joelle Hoverson is the owner of Purl Soho in New York. I've never been, but maybe someday. Anyway, I love these two books because of the way the patterns are organized by how long it takes to make them. The above scarf was made for Anne who writes at Writing by Numbers (waving hello!) I met Anne a few years ago because Car Guy and I have known her husband for years. We went to visit her and her husband this past weekend and you can't go without a hostess gift...my Sainted Mother taught me that...she's smart that way. This just struck me and said I needed to make it for Anne. It's feminine without being too frilly or froufrou. I think I'm going to have to make some more of these puppies....hmmm....I wonder...So, we had a wonderful visit with Anne and her family. I ate way too much food, but it was so good - Bruschetta and grilled pizza...yum! Hope we didn't keep you from anything Anne! You must come visit us soon!
Sorry...back to the task at hand. I have a few other things on needles. One item is from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. It's the Chevron Scarf.
So that's what I've been working on. Hope the creative juices are flowing for you!
