Knitting Projects Update & Pattern

Aye yay yay! We've been so busy.

In my daybook for this week (which was late) I mentioned that I did a major purge of the art supplies I have accumulated over the last 15 plus years.

Yikes. A person can accumulate a whole lot of stuff in 15 years.

But everything is sorted, sifted and on it's way outta here.

It feels very good and I hope it will bless the students at the art school.

But besides cleaning, I have been


knitting,

knitting,


and knitting


trying to get Nana's scarf finished.

She bought the yarn last year and I never got to it.

So this year I made it my priority.

Now that it's finished, I am going to finish that toddler sweater and start something??
Socks?? A purse?? Not sure. But I'm armed with books from the library.

For the knitters out there, this is a simple lace pattern (Nana didn't want me to block the scarf so it's hard to see the pattern in these pictures but it looks like this when pulled apart--

Anyhoo, it's called the Peaks and Valleys Scarf by Jackie Erickson-Schweitzer and Margaret Pittman

To make it you'll need: 300 yards of fingering or light sport-weight yarn

US size 4 needles or a size that makes the pattern pleasing to you

Cast on 37 stitches loosely.

Row 1: (wrong side) [p1, k5] 6 times, p1.
Row 2: k1, [yo,k1,sl1-k2tog-psso, k1, yo,k1] 6 times.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until desired length.
Repeat row 1 once more.

Bind off loosely.
