Currently On My Needles



I have started another pair of socks....probably for Princess Cupcake. I also needed to give my hands a break and started a scarf. For some reason my hands have been sore these past few days....I have not worked on anything but socks lately and I'm sure my technique of holding the sock could most likely be improved on and has contributed to this.

The picture doesn't look very impressive but the yarn for the scarf is really nice....albeit a bit more expensive then I would normally put into a scarf for myself! Serendipity had this scarf on display and I couldn't resist! I discovered when I started the project that the black yarn is only 78 yards so it may end up an expensive disapointment by being too short....hopefully it will work out!

I felted my purse last night and it is currently in the drying phase.....NOT sure how it is going to turn out.....the lighter purple "furry" type yarn I used sort of reminded me of the way my cat looks when wet! LOL!!! The jury is still out on this one.....may end up being a basket for the cat to sleep in if she can fit inside! LOL!!

As long as the scarf can hang around your neck, it should be long enough. It looks nice!

I think one reason I have more than one project going at a time is to give my hands a break.

Cracking up thinking of a purple wet cat! I hope the scarf works out ok.
