my kingdom for a set of size 4 needles...



i just made "megan's ruffled neck warmer" designed by megan b. wright. unfortunately, i had to use a set of size 7s - as they're the smallest straight needles i have... so, the scarf itself is not nearly as dense as i would like... very noodle-y... the ruffle however, still billows and undulates... it's entertaining...

so, i will have to cave and buy yet another set of needles... and make another. shucky darn! :) the pattern is from 101 designer one-skein wonders edited by judith durant.

i've been very good about NOT buying armfuls of yarn for no reason as of late... although, i am guilty of bringing home an itty-bitty-yarny-clearance-binny-somethin'-somethin'... to add to my growing collection of random string... lying in wait... like dust bunnies... in this drawer, that bag, and this other box, etc... and i also have orphaned vintage buttons that are just crying out to be used on something like this...

kismet, no?

A cousin once taught me how to knit in junior high. I think I made half a scarf! Someday, I'd like to try knitting again, but right now any free time I have is spent blogging! Glad I found you on Filipina Moms Blog, happy to follow along.

post modern jen - i can totally relate to long term knitting... please note the legwarmers below that took me a couple of years to make... the first one took a couple of days - it was the second one that weighed around my neck like an anvil. :) i'm glad you found me via filipia moms blog too!! thanks for stopping by and commenting! :)
