I sorta told a half lie yesterday. It isn’t just busyness that’s keeping me from here, but, let’s call it, blog-identity confusion. I’m just not sure where I want to take this blog. I’m not worried about knitting vs sewing, but rather how much more of me I want to share on here. I don’t want to start writing about every day minutiae, but at the same time there is more to me than knitting. I also don’t want to be one of those blogs that thinks they are a trend report and just posts photos from fashion shows or the latest anthropologie sweater. I do sometimes find things I would love to share (like this gorgeous handmade glass jewelry on etsy!) but maybe that’s more for twitter? I’m not sure where I’m going with this little train of thought so don’t mind me. I know some of you have closed down your blogs or are approaching them differently, what was your thought process? what helped make your final decision? (don’t worry! I’m not going to stop blogging!) I would love to hear about it in the comments. in the mean time let’s talk scarves, which I didn’t think I would need in the middle of june!
yarn: koigu kppm, 2 hanks, p154
needles: 4mm addi circs
date started: 04.23.09
date finished: 05.10.09
was else is there to say about this? the yarn is gorgeous! the pattern easy peasy! I put it away mid may because I thought I wouldn’t need it again, but this scarf must really want to be worn because I have to keep taking it out. what is up june?! yesterday was in the 60’s and today it’s pouring. my little wool scarf and I get to bond at least. want to know something? this was the last knitting I’ve done. I haven’t cast on for anything else nor am I working on any lingering projects. I might have wound some yarn this weekend. maybe. but that’s all that happened so far.
ok so you want a really easy scarf? like one you can make in ten minutes? get yourself some shot cotton and just mix and match some colors. sew it up and you’re done.
when stef was in philly a couple of months ago I met her a spool sewing before dinner. the wall of shot cotton called to me. I quickly remembered this quick tutorial they posted on their blog and that’s all the nudging I need. I ended up making three of them (one for stef, my friend zoe, and me) and I still have a half yard left of turquoise. I’m looking for the perfect orange and then I can make one more for me!
