New Project and it’s not a sock

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.

I LOVE the colors in the 'watermelon' scarf! And I've got to say that I'm in awe of how fast you knit! Seems like that working socks on circulars makes them go pretty fast, eh? I plod along with DPNs.
Nice work!
