Did you think I was never going to post another craft  project again?  I’ve realized that I haven’t posted a FO since late October (shame shame on me).  I’ve been working on projects for the girls that I have to wait till they go to bed to actually make progress on.  As well as a few I can actually work on during the day.

I have the book Twelve Months of Knitting (cute projects and I’m thinking of making the Ski Lodge Scoop (ravelry link) after the new year) and in it is a project of knitting up a square out of wool, felting it, then cutting out any shape you want and add some embroidery.  Really cute actually.

This is my square all knitted up and pre-felted.  Measuring 11 1/2″ x 8 3/8″.

After being felted, measuring 10″ x 5 1/2″

I’m still trying to figure out what to make of it, but it was nice to see exactly how much it felted by.  I’m thinking a mug cozy to keep my morning cuppa coffee toasty.

Also, my Mom has been hinting around that she wanted a knitted scarf and how “she just wishes she knew how to knit so she could have a nice knitted scarf”.  Ok Mom, I can take a hint.

I started it last night and hopefully I’ll have it completed by Christmas.  I should, it’s an easy pattern and actually knits up pretty quick.  The pattern is the Baby’s Feather & Fan by Denise Jackson-Holder (only available via Ravelry from what I can see).  Yarn is leftover from the cardigan I made for K.  2 skeins of Knit Picks Comfy in Flamingo on size 8 needles.

As well as this scarf, I’m hoping to knit up the Herringbone Neck Warmer (isn’t it beautiful!) for my Mom and myself (after the New Year and everything settles down).  Either that or crocheting up this beautiful scarf (it’s so dainty and beautiful!).  Just another thing I love about living here in Ohio, getting to sport some beautiful knitwear!

    I like the feather and fan scarf you are knitting, very pretty! and I absolutely love the herringbone one. Thanks for the link, I just might make one myself. Lord knows I don’t need another thing on my knitting to do list, but I just crossed something off, so maybe I can afford to put something back on it 😉

    Of course Lisa, that’s the only way a to-do list works. Yes, and I’m very tempted to buy the recommended yarn because it just looks that beautiful. Or, buying some blank wook yarn and “hand painting” it myself.

    The scarf you are knitting is beautiful, but then, I have always really like the feather pattern… although, it is much older than ravelry. My Grandmother knit me a baby blanket with it some 30+ years ago. I have her old pattern, but it has no name to identify it by.

    I’m with you Christa, it’s one of my favorite patterns as well. I know that it’s older than Ravelry (much much older, even older than myself) I was just saying for this scarf pattern that I found. I always give credit where credit is due.

    I understand about giving credit where it is due, and am glad the pattern is widely available. Go Ravelry!
