Thanks to all the advice from friends and fellow knitmen, I settled on three new projects.
I don't know why this wasn't attaching to the other post.
My first attempt at this was such a success and I knew the hubby's other sister was sure to want one too so I cast this on the weekend before Christmas and finished it today.
So I'm way behind every year on my Christmas (et al) cards. Today was the day I finally went to the post office to mail them off.
I was actually looking for a pattern of the coat worn by Lyra in the movie 'The Golden Compass' but when I googled 'Lyra knit coat' I came to this page:
OK – I admit it: I’m a knitting bag whore. And, I’m not the only one on this site – you others know who you are!
This got written for the KR retreat in November -- and I blame it all on A*n*y*i*; who denies responsibility....but it's her fault anyway...
Ghost Knitters in the Sky
Finally finished the "Mermaid Scarf," which is just a scarf knit in Mistake Rib pattern with knitted fringe.
Ok, here it is, my first scarf and my first blog posting on here. I just started to pick up knitting about three weeks ago and practiced on some yarn I had laying around.
