I think I might be able to blame Norma a little for it. Her friend in This Post looks so cute with the scarf on and Norma made it sound like an easy knit and she posted a link to the pattern. What’s a gal to do when faced with all of that? That’s right. The gal casts on.
The scarf and I have an understanding. She knows that as soon as I have more time and can work on a more complicated pattern, she’ll be cast into the UFO heap. She is made with handspun but still that may not be enough to get me to finish it. We’re all ok with that.
In fact what I need to pick up when I have a brain is this:
Yes, it’s acrylic. My girls need something washable and there is a specific sweater that belongs to “7 going on 20” that I need to replace. It’s something that she got as a gift last year and it started to fall apart after the first washing. Now it’s in shambles and the only way I can throw it away (in a nice way, we could of course do this with lots of screaming and tears) is to replicate it. This is the yarn that was chosen to replicate it. I’m pretty sure the yarn will hold up well. Lets hope I hold up to the acrylic knitting.
I’m leaving you for the weekend with a picture from Halloween.
My sneaker wearing Gypsies. And in case you can’t see what is on their “crystal” ball – the future foretold a couple of girls with massive bags of candy and more candy floating all about them. That was quite true. They both overfilled their bags.
