Six More Weeks for Craft Projects

I took a knitting class a while back. The project she used to teach, was a scarf that  used the knit and pearl stitch.

I attempted the scarf several times but always ended up making too many mistakes that I didn't know how to fix. They all ended up in the scrap pile!  After making several other simpler scarves, I went back to the one from class. I made my daughter one for Christmas, there are a few mistakes but overall it was a success. She took it a step further and made it into an infinity scarf.
Here she is, bundled up and ready to go outside to build a snowman!

I do not have a pattern for it. It was just K3, P3 as wide as you want it. I made this one close to 60 inches long.


If you trust the Ground Hog, it looks like we have six more weeks of winter coming. I guess if I want to keep a positive attitude, I can look at it as more time for those knitting and craft projects.  I  still haven't found  a new knitting project but I have officially started my sweater blanket. I spent the weekend  felting sweaters and cutting squares. I can see right now I will be browsing thrift shops for more sweaters. You go through them pretty quick!

Are you working on a project to keep cabin fever at bay?

  1. Love the scarf and I think mistakes sometimes turn out to be the best things:)
    Oh a sweater blanket sounds wonderful that makes me want to make one. It is getting very hard to find wool sweaters at the thrift stores around here everyone must be felting these days:) Can't wait to see yours. Hug B

    1. I think you are right about the sweaters, they are harder to find.

  3. Your scarf looks great and so does your model. The scarf is such a pretty grey. It is almost a perfect match for my house rabbit!

  5. I love your infinity scarf! I think the groundhog is right this year. I'll keep reading my books I guess.

  8. This week I am keeping cabin fever at bay with deadlines. I have 3 magazine articles with pictures due this week. The articles are done and pictures are taken. Need to do a little editing and send them off.

    I also have a few other pictures to edit and a little book work to do.

    Have fun with your sweater projects, Sandra. Thrifting sounds fun too!
