I will definitely be getting back to this scarf soon, it's such a fun pattern!!

My priorities right now are the socks and green ribby cardi, next will be the scarves and then the other sweaters. Now that I'm full time the cables are a little much for a quick work project. I'm afraid they'll be wips or UFO's for awhile! Ack! :)

I have also been trying to teach myself how to spin. Let me just say it's not pretty. I need A LOT of practice and probably a couple classes! Now I know why so many people get spinning wheels after working with a drop spindle for a little bit. Well, that's all for now. Going to work on my socks! :)


  1. My goodness, you have a lot going on. I have the sleeve caps left to go on my Must Have Cardigan...worked the fronts and back together on circulars up to the sleeve bind off. Can't imagine frogging it,although the Debbie Bliss sweater is lovely too. Unfortunatly, I cast on for the Clapotis out of some Classic Elite Fame from my much too large stash and it keeps saying just one more dropped stitch. They will both be finished before I start anything else...I think. Several things on your needles are on my list...Ribby, such a nice wearable pattern, Ruffles, very girly and irresistible and Mariah, who doesn't like a another great cable pattern. Good luck with your WIPs...they are inspiring!

  2. those are a lot of projects you're working on. i'm working on my own ribby as we speak as well as four other projects. i have gloria on my list, which i have to wait until ribby is done. good luck finishing them all.
