Charlene's Purple Socks

Hmmm, so I am a little behind. The "Charlene's purple socks" were scheduled as an August birthday present for guess who? The first one I sent to her to check for size, too short. So I ripped it out and now 5 months later... ta-da

The first one, the one I ripped out, didn't have such bad pooling. I don't mind the pooling but there it is. Guess we will have to live with it.

Bad me

So I decided that I wanted to make the xmas heart scarf in time to wear it for Valentine's Day, even though it isn't on the to do list or the ever-growing in progress list. Bad me.

I started it and and it took a day and a half to do the first heart. I was beginning to not only feel like a bad list person, but a bad knitter. Then the next day I just charged through two hearts. I figured out that when it isn't working, I just need to stop and work on another project.

Anyway, I started the scarf on Sunday night and finished it on Wednesday night. Being snowed in helps.

Yarn: Red Heart Soft worsted
Needles: Size 9 circulars
