Progress Report

July 9, 2014

006  I am surprised that I have made it this far without stopping to make something else.  I can get pretty bored doing the same thing over and over.  I have nine rows to go.  Then I start on the final third.  It’s charcoal, not a good color for me.  That’s why I knitted with the light gray first. Now I’ll have something to compare with it.

004  The edge looks good.

Miss Babbs Scarf

June 23, 2014

I believe I mentioned that I did not care for the pattern that came with the kit. I liked the yarn except for the grey. It just didn’t look right with the other colors. Since I have A LOT of sock weight yarn, I’m certain I’ll find something to put with it. After all, It’s just grey.

I Was Underwhelmed

June 9, 2014

My yarn club came today.  I was looking forward to it because several weeks ago, they asked which colors I preferred.  One of the choices was reds, and that’s what I was expecting.  What I got was one wine, one grey and one black.  I looked at the pattern and I said, “oh.”  I honestly expected so much more from Miss Babbs.  I have gotten some absolutely beautiful yarn from them.  The stuff the I got today was down right dull.  I am so disappointed.  I’ll be looking elsewhere for a yarn club next year.  Hells.  Bells.

005  This is the sock yarn dyed especially for Sheep and Wool.  I thought it was a little tame, but it should make nice socks.

003  This my club installment.  It’s lace weight silk and wool which is nice.  Lace weight should be soft and lacy, not geometric.  I have some yellow-orange alpaca that I plan to add.  It should help soften the look.  So.  I guess I’ll go look at patterns.
