The tangled remains ; cast-on plus 4 rows, lots of stitch markers and the crumpled copy of the pattern.
Back to Glee knitting.

I've lost my mind

I was thinking (I know - never a good thing) that with my other large projects of Big Pink sweater (just past the dividing for the sleeves) and Glee (still increasing) I needed a smaller project to keep me going. What did I cast on for???? Ene's Scarf from ScarfStyle. I know! Insanity! But I have been yearning to try my hand at a non-sock lace project and have always liked Ene's Scarf. I like that it is scarf sized and not a full shawl.

I recently purchased some Knit Picks Shimmer in this yummy fall color, Maple Leaf.

Blame the start of football season for this focus on fall. I equate football to crisp fall days and even snow for late season - I am from Chicago. But here in WA in Sept where the trees stay green forever, I need to create my own fall colors.

CO of 375 sts and row 1 complete, only 178 more to go. The goal is to have it done by Superbowl. Impossible?

Stacy's socks

These are going out to my friend in IL. 90 degrees in Chicago and I send her 100% wool socks. So? These are a simple 3x2 rib made in Mountain Colors that I received in a sock swap. Sorry no color, no idea where the tag went. Stacey has a big foot and I had to fudge a little at the toe and add some Telemark heather. I think it worked out well.

I was a knittin' fool this long weekend, more FO's to follow.

Stay cool Stace, me? I'm in a hoodie :-)
