Grey Scarf & Pink Cowl

Hi Friends ...
Hope you had a wonderful weekend...
I have been very busy as always. My daughter had homecoming dance this weekend and we went shopping fro dress...we had 6 girls getting ready at our house on Saturday...
very busy, very loud...but lots of fun! They were all so very beautiful and enjoyed their time together and we enjoyed watching them growing up and becoming young women...
Where does the time goes ???

In the meantime I have been working on the grey scarf I got inspired by Kirsten at cozymadethings.blogspot.com.
This was a fun and quick project and it brought memories of when I first learned how to knit...fun, enjoyable memories that I keep close to my heart.
I decided to make it a short scarf and I'm going to bind off and sew it together, put 3 pretty buttons (I haven't found the right ones yet) and make it into an infinity scarf/cowl...

I'll probably post the final project next week, but here you go ...that is what it looks like now...
pure...simple, meditative knitting ...


 
Sometimes that is just what we need...

I have been working on some hats to send to my mom which then adds to a complete layette and give to a needy family that is having a brand new baby...
It's such a great and rewarding feeling ...
I have not taken any pictures yet, but promise I'll show it to you before I send them off to Brazil.

Last I just wanted to show you this cowl I made last year...Again...
 
Very simple (just knitting on the round) but the yarn makes a great statement...


I don't remember the name of the yarn, I got it at a friend's store and she just moved ...
I just thought it is so pretty and so pink ...It makes me happy :)

Hope you enjoy your week and come back to visit me again soon.

  3. Lovely garter stitch scarf, I love the simplicity of garter stitch. I bet you had a great time with all those girls, I have boys so have never had the joy of experiencing all those girls getting ready together. I bet their excitement was magical.
