I cannot remember the last time I wrote a YOP update on SUNDAY! Not yet in 2012 I am sure! I wish I had a super duper update but unfortunately, it is a small one again.
I did have a chance to work on the Special Occasion Scarf, which is a YOP item, towards the end of the week. At first, I wasn't really excited about it...something about fingering weight yarn and a lace pattern just was not appealing to me. But after I got going and somewhat memorized the pattern, I felt a lot better. (of course, watching Arrested Development probably helped some). Only had to rip back a couple times before I came to my senses and threw in a lifeline here and there. My goal is to be at the end of the skein by the end of this week.
A friend from high school is having a baby girl early next month and I did not have her present ready at the baby shower. EEK! I finally finished that up this week and am looking forward to sending it to her.
The pattern is Hospital Hat. I made one for A and really enjoyed the pattern. Funny story...my plan was to knit it all pink. Then I ran out of pink yarn RIGHT at the decreases. I REALLY did not want to buy a whole skein (what?! I didn't??) to finish it out. LIGHTBULB IDEA: I will turn it into a watermelon!! Well, a seedless watermelon...I wish I would have thought of this before then I would have added seeds! Oh well!
I am about half done with the project bag (ran out of yarn on this one too!) and am looking forward to finishing that up this week.
Thanks for checking in!
