Losing January

Yep that is right, I somehow managed to loose a whole month! Life gets that busy.
I am working on several different knitting projects, which has kept me busy as ever.

I started off the year working on Scarves. The first one was from Handspun wool. One ply of golden yellow and one ply of black.

Pattern: Yarn Harlots One Row Handspun Scarf
Yarn: Spun by me
Yardage: Um I have no idea on this one, I just kept knitting until I ran out of yarn.
This was a knit for a Steeler Fan, of course! Way to go Steelers!

The next project was knit for a customer:

Pattern: Heather Undulating Waves Scarf
Yarn: Schaefer Yarns Heather
This is a neat pattern and I really like to knit it. But I do grow bored of it about half way through. I did get it done on time for the customer though.

The next project was a model for the Shop:

Pattern: The Yarn Harlots One Row Handspun Scarf
Yarn :Universal Classic Worsted Long Print
This went fast. I used one skein and just knit till I ran out again.

Finally I got another Wallaby knit up as 2 of my sisters are pregnant, I figured I would work on some small ones for the new babies.

So that is what happened to most of my January. February has begun and the economy is still not doing the greatest.
If you get a chance, check out this new charity looking for sponsorship.
