Here is what I have accomplished this week in the way of stitching:
I had some yarn left from the pidge scarf I made here. So I made this neck scarf. I loved, loved this pattern! 4 rows are repeated over and over to get a look like cables. Every 4th row makes a hole, so instant button holes, as loose or as tight as needed.
I received this pattern free when I purchased some yarn at a shop while on vacation. I will be making more of these. It only takes about 100yds of a worsted weight yarn, so I was able to get 2 neck scarves out of the skein with a little left over. It would make a nice flower or embellishment for a hat or sweater 🙂
Next, I started Johanna’s Royal Holiday on her Large Stitch RR. I feel guilty for having it in my possession for so long and Johanna really needs to see how beautiful it is in person.
And last, my new look. I have decided to go quite a bit shorter with my hair. I had it cut about 6 weeks ago and it was a little difficult for me to go short. But I loved it and wore it wavy through the summer. But now that fall is here, I needed a new shorter look. So I took the plunge yesterday.
It’s very hard for me to take a picture of myself and I cut the top of my head off. Oh well. You can see my new short look. I think I look very business like. Hubby calls it short and sassy. I like it. What have you been stitching on this week?
