I finally started a new knitting project that is not a sock. I am knitting the Minnie scarf (also goes by the name of Bobble scarf) by Jumpers Cable knitting. I am using Manos Silky Blend in color 300A (a blue color). I love this yarn. I am also using a size 7 needle. The scarf is a sideways scarf and is easy to knit. This is the first time I am using the new version of the Signature Cable needle and I love it. The cable is really nice and so are the needles.
I finally finished my Chevron Scarf that I started in March of 2007. I used Blue Moon Fiber Arts yarn in Watermelon Tourmaline and Farmhouse with a size 5 needle. I have blocked the scarf and it blocked at over 80 inches. So, it’s a nice size scarf. I am very happy with this. I love the colors.
So, I am down to the following old projects that I need to finish:
1. Central Park Hoodie
2. Mystery Stole – which is my next project to finish
3. Olivia Sweater
4. Ripple Afghan
5. Afghan Squares from the Great American Afghan. - I really only started this in November and only did about 2 or 3 rows on the first square.
The rest of the projects that I have on the needles are newer projects that I have been working on. I figure that I will finish the Mystery Stole and then start working on the Central Park Hoodie again in September. I am feeling really good about my goals for 2011.
I have also finished the first Abstract Fiber sock in Sweet Pea and cast on for the second sock. I am using size 1 needles. I just love this yarn.
It’s really nice not working. I am getting a lot of things done around the house and a lot of knitting done. I am certainly NOT bored.
