Sharing Knitting

Photobucket

I finished my feather scarf today !
What do you think ?
I love it.
I can't wait 'til the weather starts to cool and I can wear it.
I was sweltering just having it on for ten seconds to take the photo above !!

Last night I stayed up 'til 1:00 am knitting !
I wanted to try making a mug cozy.
I made one but it was about two sizes too big for any of my mugs !!
See how I had to tie it onto the mug.
So not working for me !
I pulled it all out today and started over.
I've since pulled that one out too ...
Sheesh !
I'll start again tonight and see if I can finish one that is the right size ...
or maybe I'll start something else.
I have a shawl that I want to try making and since I've finished the feather scarf,
the right size needles are now available !!

Yes, I think I'll start the shawl.

Now, in fact.

See you tomorrow ...

Love the scarf! Yea for getting somehting finished...and it sounds like you're fast becoming an expert knitter cause you're getting good at ripping! :-) I just ripped out a blanket out four times...I'm finally happy with the pattern though so I'm on a roll now! I've got FOUR baby blankets that I need to knit cause I now have FOUR friends all due between July and October. Sheesh! No more babies for a while please people!! :-) LOVE YOU

Nice scarf! It looks lovely.

I like the idea of a mug cozy. I've been wanting to try a teapot cozy for some time now but haven't found a pattern I really like.

I love your scarf! Great job. It has such pretty colors and looks so nice and warm and fuzzy. I often stay up late working on a project, too. Sometimes, I really need to go to sleep so I don't make mistakes, though!

Love the scarf Bonnie - so pretty!

The scarf looks cute! Festive!
As far as the mug cozy...try a worsted weight yarn and size 7 needles. It looks like you're using cotton. Very bulky! :) Just a tip.

Your scarf is beautiful Bonnie!! I started making a scarf, but have never finished it. I should really get onto that before winter sets in!
