In September I began a quest to knit up a bunch of scarves so there would always be a clean and dry one to choose from in the coming winter months. What I have succeeded in doing is making myself a little crazy. By casting on too many scarves, I find myself getting confused by what pattern I'm working on and I'm making too many mistakes...like...slipping a stitch when I should be purling. I like knowing that I'm not alone in doing this and feel just like friend Anneli when she wrote, it's too hard to resist seeing how a new yarn or pattern will perform. She finds she runs out of knitting needles...that's never been my problem...
Here's what I've been working on...
Pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
CO 22 stitches on #10 needles using a locally spun kidlin lace
CO 23 stitches on #13 needles using locally hand-dyed, hand-spun chunky wool yarn
Pattern by Rachel at Cornflower Blue
CO 3 stitches + increases on #2 needles using thrifted organic cotton yarn
Pattern from friend Becky and can be found in the comments here
CO 27 stitches on #8 using Patons Pure Organic Cotton
Scrappy Lengthwise Scarf
Pattern via Ravelry
CO 400 stitches on #7 circular needles using thrifted crewel yarn (I started this one way back here)
A pattern can be found here
CO 54 stitches on #3 needles using Noro Kureyon sock yarn (this just might be the scarf that won't happen...it takes about an hour to knit an inch...I feel like I'm knitting fabric, but I just love watching each new color blend in)
Pattern by The Yarn Harlot
CO 34 stitches on #8 needles using Patons Pure Organic cotton
Pattern found at Ravelry
CO 34 stitches on #8 needles using Malabrigo Worsted
Whew! If I ever get these off the needles, I'll never feel chilly this winter! Sad thing is, I'm STILL looking at new patterns I'd like to try.
One day I'll put my Ravelry account to good use and start posting finished projects over there.
