New Year’s Day

Man, I’m on fire this year! In the past 2 days I’ve already finished 2 scarves I’m sending on to Stephanie to pass out to San Francisco’s homeless. I was trying to clean our house and ended up finding two unfinished scarves, which I then finished! Interestingly enough, they were both crocheted, but I didn’t feel like crocheting them so I got out my size 19 needles, and knit the rest of them in garter stitch. It’s not exactly the same, but it looks pretty good! One is in Lana Grossa Mega Fiamma and one is in Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick.

Awhile ago I also completed this wrap using a huge amount of Lion Brand Thick and Quick. I then bought 5 more skeins on Thanksgiving Day (!) at Michael’s, but I did use up my Rowan DK Marl that I’ve had forever. It is pretty big – I’d say maybe 6 feet wide? and very thick. I’ve already used it outside when I take the kids to the park, and it really helps.

I basically crocheted a triangle, then added a crocheted edge in plain Thick and Quick because it wasn’t quite as wide as I would like.

And tomorrow, I’m off to tea at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco! I hope you have a nice weekend too!

    Croknit! Cool! They’re unique, they’re warm, and I’m sure they’ll be appreciated. Way to go! Looks like the new year came in with an extra dose of knitting mojo for you.
