I tried knitting years ago but never learned anything other than how to knit. A few years ago, I knitted a number of scarves on huge needles (50 US/25mm) and really enjoyed it, so I started looking around for scarf patterns and have had the yarn and needles in my stash for this scarf since then. I figured now was as good a time as any to give it a try and here's where I am:
I do have two finishes since my last post! I am as shocked as any of you over that news!!!
Here is 99 by Ink Circles:
And here is Twilight of the Tsar by Dimples:
This is stitched on 32-count Smokey Pearl Belfast with DMC, Kreinik and Mill Hill beads.
In addition to the finishes, I have made progress on several other projects:
Serengeti by Chatelaine stitched on 32-count Summer Sky Jobelan with recommended fibers and beads.
Sugared Almonds Gingerbread Houses by The Nutmeg Company stitched on kitted fabric, fibers and beads.
And, Mary's Sampler II SAL by Plum Street Samplers. Stitched on a piece of mystery linen, it is actually browner than shown in the photo, with provided DMC conversion. I used Simply Wool in oatmeal for the white sheep as it added a little bit of dimension.
Santa's Magic by Mirabilia has been put in the rotation. That gives me three very large projects in my rotation so I am glad I have Sugared Almonds and Mary's Sampler II or there would be no finishes for the rest of the year.
I do have to get busy finish/finishing things soon and have been searching through the house for some boxes that I bought years ago (years before I moved to Virginia). I know I brought them with me but for the life of me, I can't find them. I know I will find them as soon as I figure out an alternative.
