I have finished a few projects within the last few weeks, which makes me happy. It’s been a while since I have been able to say that I finished any of them! There are still two projects on the needles, one of which will be done sooner than the other…it’s a stole which has left than a foot to go on it. Hey, considering that it is a six foot stole, that really isn’t bad…even if I did start it last year. *grin* This is the one I’m making for myself, after I made two others, one for my sister and one for my best friend. The other unfinished one is my very first sweater which I also began last year and just laid it down in lieu of other projects. I like to finish things for others before I finish my own.
Okay for the two which I recently completed, the first is a six foot scarf made out of Red Heart’s new boutique yarn…Sashay. My sister sent me two balls of this to try out and I have to tell you…I love this stuff! It’s a mesh yarn and once you get the hang of it, it’s so easy to knit up…and fast. I still have the other ball to work up, in a different color and I’ll be doing that soon. The pattern for this is on the back of the yarn label and there’s a great video on the Lion Brand site to get you started if you haven’t used mesh before, which I hadn’t. For as fast as it knits up and as cute as it is, I’ll be stocking up on some of this for quick gifts in the future. Here are a few photos of the finished product:
