Crochet Sunday

I will be taking an intro Crochet class on Sunday. Can't wait!!!

I got my Ravelry invite on Tuesday! So excited! Looking around it makes me realize that I have been terrified to try harder stuff. I need to move beyond the scarf/hat patterns and try something harder. I need to explore patterns.

I cast on for my secret swap project and am liking it. It will need to be felted, which scares me a bit. But I am sure it will be fine. I will try and have it finished by next week and will post pictures then.

So, I have had a very unhealthy fear of the yarn over. Well, no more!!! This is Rebecca's 1st scarf and it was a super easy pattern but with the dreaded YO. I think I may have mastered it. Loved the way it turned out. She did too (yippeeee)!

This is a close up of the stitchwork.

And this is my baby boy, Wiley, checking it out.

Pay it Forward

Posting this a 2nd time as I have had no takers yet!
These are the instructions: "It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting it. What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. And you have 6 months to do it. And one day at the mailbox, you will get a surprise -- a gift made especially for YOU!
Please remember, anyone who can make a nice handmade gift is welcome to join :)

The Ruffled Moss Stitch Scarf for Natalie is done! I think it turned out super cute. Love the color. This was my first ruffle.

Have a few other scarves on the list now. Although...I need to knit something for me really soon!

Projects, Projects, and More Projects

Well, I found the digital camera so I am posting pictures of the hat and scarf (both cables) for Lindsay! (Me wearing both and the view of what it looks like in the box) Very happy with how both turned out.

Still have a few projects for others on the list before I start anything for myself. Luke loved his 3 hats and wants 2 more, so I will be knitting those up soon!
I have started the scarf for Natalie. And Rebecca wants 2 scarves for her move to a colder place (which will not get done before she leaves in 2 weeks -- I will have to mail them to her).
I am thinking that about what I want to knit for my secret swap....and I think I am going to attempt a felt project. Also, waiting to get the yarn swap assignment...I just love any reason to buy yarn!
