Fingernail Friday


Monday, February 21, 2011


A friend's birthday is fast approaching, so I needed a fast, fun knit for her. I also really liked this pattern, so the combination is a WIN! in my books. The pattern is Infinitude, an 'infinity scarf'. In other words, a big knit circle. The pattern comes in 2 sizes, I knit the larger one because I like drama.
Laid out to dry after it's bath:
Wrapped 3 times around the neck:
Wrapped twice around:
And a last, out of focus shot (sorry!) of how long it is:


The yarn is Lorna's Laces Lion and Lamb, it took a whole hank and about half of the next, so 300 yards-ish for the larger size scarf.

This took me about a week to knit up, with interruptions for, oh, work, eating, sleeping, migraines, you

I am now tempted to make another for me. Although I have 2 new cowls I just knit!

My clog/slippers developed a hole or 4. Not feeling like knitting a whole new pair right now as I am working on a couple of other projects I thought I would fix em.

The before pic (well, the 'I got started and then realized I should take a 'before' pic' ) :

Then I needle felted some fibre I had lying around onto the holes:

Tada! Like almost-new! I was a bit concerned the bottom of the slipper would feel lumpy, but it doesn't. I can't tell there is a patch at all. Or 4 patches, as the case may be.

Hubby Hat or Melonhead II

Hubby really needed a new hat. His old one is pilling and not very nice anymore.

His request was that it 'cover his ears'. So I cast on 96 stitches, k2p2 for 8 inches, decrease and done! Decreases were done as this pattern in the round has written up.

What to knit next? I am ogling 2 'infinity' scarves. What to knit? The Infinitude scarf or the Gap-tastic one...?
I know, I'll go raid the stash and whatever one I find yarn for first wins! Sounds fair ,right?
