Making Progress

It's funny, but I find that I become quite obsessive when it comes to knitting. I especially like using plain aluminum straight needles. I love the way the yarn glides smoothly across the cool metal. It really is therapy.

I have been making a lot of progress with my Hourglass Eyelet Scarf. There is a lot less thinking involved in making a scarf than there is with a pair of socks. Once I get the pattern down, I can just pick up and knit when I have the chance. I am almost done with my first skein of yarn and suspect I will be using another 2 to 3 skeins to make a 70" scarf.

I can't wait to wear this scarf. I think it will look amazing with a black tank top or a navy blue shirt.

As you can see the pattern is a series of cables with eyelet holes in the center of each cable. I always thought that cables were for advanced knitters only when really they are so easy! I am thrilled to be able to knit a simple cable without having to use a cable needle or J hook.

I would write more, but my unfinished scarf is calling me ...
