Out With The Old, In With The New

I was going to do one of those cute flickr photo mosaics like all the other cool knit-bloggers to show off how much I finished in 2008, so I started counting up all my FOs.
Hmmm…. nine. Well that’s not really that impressive, is it? Granted, I pretty much stopped knitting from March-June due to our cross-country move. And technically, the Master Knitter Swatches could be counted individually….

9. Shredded Wheat Scarf

You see how I snuck that last one in there? I finished the Shredded Wheat Scarf on December 17th and never blogged about it because I was waiting until we got our camera back from being repaired.

Yarn: Brooks Farm Yarn Four Play, 1.65 skeins
Needles: Knit Picks Harmony Options, size 11
Pattern: Scrunchable Scarf by Susan McConne
Thoughts: I used much larger needles than the pattern called for in order to make the scarf even more squooshy. I really like the way it turned out and have been wearing it every day since I bound off. Soft and warm!

Thermal is still progressing pretty steadily. Joey and I are taking a trip back to Texas next week so I’m looking forward to plenty of train and plane knitting time. We’re so excited that we get to spend a few days with our families and meet our new nephew!

    Other knitters may have more FOs, but they don’t have Henry. Or that fantastically cute new nephew.

    My hand warmers are wonderful, it’s been in the 30s so far this week and I have worn them every day..but not to worry it is suppose to be in the high 60’s and low 70’s while you are here at the ranch…CAN’T HARDLY WAIT…

  5. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! Ok, a little late – I hope you have a wonderful year. Your scarf is beautiful.
