Knitting...then and now

This Chevron Scarf took me quite awhile to finish. It's because it's warmer out and my desire to knit subsides when the weather warms up. Besides, I have been quilting more and that leaves less time for knitting. it's wonderful to have several different interests to fall back on. Anyway, this scarf turned out quite well considering it was an experiment. I like the way the three different colors combined. I will admit that it was a bit tedious keeping three balls of yarn untangled but still well worth it, in my opinion!



My new knitting project is another pair of socks. This yarn is Fleece Artist Blue-faced Leicester all the way from Nova Scotia, which I've never used before but really like. It's easy to knit and it's super soft. I just wanted to knit a simple pattern to show off the striping of the yarn.

Wow! The scarf turned out great! I'm not sure I have the patience for three skeins of yarn, but yours is well worth the effort. Guess what I started yesterday? Yup, a Chevron in two colors of LL Shepherd Sport. So far so good. Couldn't hold off any longer.

Love your knitting projects! I did the chevron scarf with two colors and I can't believe how long it took for such a simple pattern --

I am definitely not a knitter, but I just love what you made. The colors are gorgeous!

The scarf is gorgeous!! Using 3 yarns at the same time would be so hard!! Dropping a stitch would have been HORRIBLE, I shudder at the thought LOL.

The scarf came out great! I've not knit a Chevron scarf yet. Socks are cute too. There is nothing like a simple sock...and it's the perfect summer project!
