Ok – so forget the idea of branching. I can’t figure out how to add new posts to the different pages. It seems that a page is a page is a page, and never will it become anything more. sigh
So – My lovely page about all the knitting has been moved to here – pictures and all.
If anyone caught the post in the page before pruning, you would have seen me make reference to the designer of blogs as either genius or evil incarnate ..
guess which way I’m leaning …
I finished this ribbon hat from the Itty Bitty Hats Book by Susan B. Anderson. She embellished hers at the crown but I’ve chosen to leave mine with a short stem. It’s so cute! I love that ribbon I selected too – so young at heart. I picked up yellow and pink ribbons in the same patterns. They are on my list to do more of these ribbon hats in different sizes. Adorable. The one pictured here is newborn to 6 months.
I paid a visit to the LYS (Local Yarn Shop) Thimbles and Threads in Miramichi when we were on our way back from Beaver Lodge. Unfortunately, my timing was not the greatest as they had depleted their supply for stock taking and the new order hadn’t arrived yet.
Can you say DARN?
I made the best of it though and selected 4 skeins of Pomp-A-Doodle Super Bulky Yarn from Red Heart. Here’s the bonus! . Follow the Pomp-A-Doodle Link to the Red Heart site and get the free pattern AND watch a how to video for working the yarn in both knit and crochet. I made 2 scarves so far as pictured here. I have 2 more scarves to knit. 1 in Sage and the other in Berries and Cream. I should be done both those today since it takes about 3 hours for me to make 1 scarf. The more experienced knitter can probably make a scarf in half the time.
Since I made the original post here, I DID finish the sage coloured Pomp-A-Doodle scarf. However – I veered when it came to making the scarf with Berries and Cream. Instead, I’m making another hat. What is it with me and hats? so far it’s adorable and it gives me ideas to make a little skirt with the Pomp-A-Doodle hemline – I must order more!
Tomorrow some recipes for Old Fashioned Pumpkin Cookies and Delicious sweet pork chops.
Until then – Happy knitting!
