I am back from my work and play in beautiful Hawaii. Tomorrow I'll show you my scarf progress, but for today I wanted to share some photos I took on my trip. I spent a week doing work stuff on Oahu, and then went to the big island to relax before coming home. Everything was... Continue Reading →
I will be traveling for a bit and will probably not be able to post around here while I am gone. With any luck by the time I get back I will have a mostly finished scarf to show off. In the meantime, keep creating and having fun!
I've been winding my yarn into cakes for a while now. However, it was only recently that I discovered this particular trick of putting the cake into a ziploc bag. It is so simple and obvious I'm not sure why I didn't do it sooner. It keeps the cake from wobbling around as I pull,... Continue Reading →

As quick and fun as those hat were to make, I'm happy that I can go back to focusing on this scarf. I was on a roll with it for a while, making lots of progress every day. Hopefully I can get back to that again because there's still a long way to go.
It's all done! I definitely like the colors of this one better than the first one for myself. I will probably give the other one away. This one will be going on vacation with me in a few weeks!
