One skein down, one to go...

One skein down, one to go.

Progress on the My So Called Scarf is coming along nicely. I’ve just finished up knitting my first skein of Bullfrogs and Butterflies and the scarf is just over 3 feet long. I’m planning on adding fringe to the ends, so I’ll probably just reserve some yarn for that and knit ‘til the rest is gone. Hopefully that will produce a pretty good sized scarf! I’m definitely going to need to block it to help straighten it out a bit. My edges in places look a little uneven and wavy. I’m enjoying the knitting a bit more than I was at the start. I’ve really gotten into a rhythm with the stitch pattern. It’s still not the most exciting thing to knit, but like Steph said in the comments on the last post, it makes for perfect mindless T.V. knitting!

Baby sized Cabled Newsboy Hat.I also started another little project. This time it’s a modified Cabled Newsboy Hat from Stitch ‘N Bitch Nation. This is going to be a gift for my husband’s cousin’s daughter, Laven. We met up with her and her fiancé when they were in Vegas a couple months ago, and they just loved Camdyn’s hat (you can see it here in our very first blog post!) I had a little bit of trouble remembering what I did to make the hat the first time, but I think I’m on track and it’s coming together quickly! I’m using one of my favorite yarns, Cascade 220 Superwash, in color #840. It’s a nice pale lavender—perfect for a little girl named Laven!
