Scarf progress (18)

Only made a few rows of progress tonight, but I'm still happy. Any day when I still have time to work on this at all is a good day. The skein of yarn I'm using has been getting a bit loose and easily tangled now that it's getting close to the end so I also... Continue Reading →

Scarf progress (17)

You can't see the pretty cables from this angle, but you can see all the colors really well. This scarf is my next priority now that I've finished my rug. I would really like to finish it before the end of the month.

Finished Rug!

I actually managed to finish it tonight! There was a little yarn left over,  since I wanted to keep the two gray sections the same size. I am so happy with this little project. Now I have to decide what to use the other 3 skeins on!

Rug progress (7)

I got so much done! It looks like it should be finished but in fact it still has a few rows left to go. It looks so nice laying next to my bed, and it is going to be exactly the right size. It might have been cheaper or easier to just buy a rug,... Continue Reading →

Rug progress (6)

This thing is just flying off my hook! I'm on the third and final ball of yarn now. I might even finish it by this weekend if I have time to keep working on it all week.

Rug progress (5)

The rest of my week is probably going to be quite busy, so I made sure to spend some time tonight to work on this rug. I love working with this chunky yarn and watching my project grow by leaps and bounds every day.

Rug progress (4)

I'm back at my apartment today, and back at work on this crochet rug. It is big enough now that I'm thinking of leaving it on the floor when I'm not working on it, so I can start using it right away. We're supposed to get some wintry weather tomorrow, and it would be nice... Continue Reading →

Scarf progress (16)

Only one row of progress tonight. Sometimes I feel silly trying to cram in just a few stitches on a project some nights, but it gives me a sense of accomplishment to keep my streak of doing something creative every day. Even if it is small, I know I'm taking at least a couple minutes... Continue Reading →

Scarf progress (15)

I've added almost 10" to it since the last time I measured it! It's still not quite long enough to be a scarf yet but it's starting to get close. I have been planning to just use up this skein of yarn and then hope that it's a good length. There's still plenty left to... Continue Reading →

Scarf progress (14)

I made a bunch of progress on my scarf since last time. This is mostly because I took it with me to my first 'stitch n bitch' last night. I had a fantastic time hanging out with friends, drinking wine, and working on our craft projects together. I've always wanted to try a knitting group,... Continue Reading →

Rug progress (3)

I decided since it will take three skeins to finish this, I would switch up the colors for the middle section. It's hard to see in this photo but the yarn has a little bit of a brown mixed in. I'm so pleased with how this is coming along!

Rug progress (2)

I finished as much as I could with one skein of yarn. It's about 19 rows, or 16 inches long. Based on my needs I think I can finish this rug with 3 skeins. Then I can use the other 3 for another small project or a matching rug for the other side of the... Continue Reading →
