Knitting

Switching Stitches

Since finishing August Fairy I have been undecided as to what cross stitch project  to start next.  I have several ideas in my head, just haven’t landed on any particular one yet.  So, I am switching over to  a knitting project.  Yep, Started a scarf for a Christmas gift the other night.  I am using one of those fun, scarf yarns.

scarf yarnI picked this up at Joanne’s the other night as it will go perfectly with the recipient’s coat. Here is the start:

Red Starbella Scarf in progressDon’t you just love all the bouncy, flowy, lacey,  layers?  It looks heavenly.  It is a bit of a pain to have to stop and pull apart the yarn in order to knit in the loops, but it goes pretty quickly.  here is the finished scarf:

Finished Red scarf

I love how it turned out.  It will match my coat perfectly too, hmmmm….No, it is a gift.  Here is the one I am making for myself now:

black and white scarf

This one uses a yarn I picked up at a yarn shop last year, called Marina by Rozzetti.  Same concept as the Red yarn above, just a little different feel.  This will look stunning with my red coat.  Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to.  What are you up to?

  1. You are so multi-talented Ginny! I have tried and tried to crochet and can’t do it. I realize this is knitting (which I have a little more success with). The scarves are so pretty! How long does it take to make one of these??

    1. Thanks, Johanna. These scarves go pretty quickly. Takes one ball of yarn (unless you want to make it longer) and I can probably stitch one up in about 3 or 4 hours maybe?? I started the black and white one last night after finishing the red one. I think I worked on it about 2 1/2 hours and I’m almost finished. Really quick and who can’t use a scarf in Michigan or Ohio, right? I do crochet, but tend to crochet too big for garments. Like to crochet embellishments, afghans, bed dolls, and such. But I do like the look of knitting better.
