Well, here we are again with an update on my YoP list. I had a goal for this last week: to have the owls done on the owlie sack. I can happily report that I achieved that goal and MORE!
I finished the owls and finished about 1 1/2 inches of the next 7 or so inches I need to knit before this is completed. Thankfully it is all stockinette from here on out...which I can do fairly easily while holding Aiden. :o)
I also decided to cast on another project from my YoP List: The Special Occasion Scarf. This is going to be a Christmas gift for my Grandma (no telling Sheila!) My grandma, a hip 60-something year old, loves to wear black. Don't get me wrong, she looks great! However, I try my best to get her to wear some color! Last year for Christmas, I made her a warm fuzzy scarf in...you guessed it...white and black. NOT this year! This year it is going to be lace and lavender!
This is also my first "lace" project...when I looked through the pattern and read"begin lace pattern" I almost kaboshed it! But decided to conquer the first of many knitting fears...(also included, but not limited to: sweater\cardigans, entrelac, fair isle, and many more). One thing at time...
What are\were your biggest knitting "fears"? Did you conquer them? Tell me about it!
