On and Off The Needles

Happy day after Thanksgiving Day.  I hope all my blogger friends had a good day with family and friends.  I know I did, but as usual, ate way too much.  Now I feel like the overstuffed 'turkey'.

On the knitting front, not too much was accomplished.  Here is my first "On/Off the Needles" post.  It has taken me way too long to finish this scarf because I dropped a few stitches and had to have a friend fix it, which meant unraveling it back to almost 4 inches to finally get it fixed.


It was made for a friend who was moving away and she also loves purple.  Now I'm getting ready to start another one for a Christmas present and I'm trying a circular needle for this one.  I understand that it is way easier than on long, straight, slippery needles.  I sure hope so, because there is not much time left to get a few more done for gifts.
Better get going.  Lots to do before the day is over.  I'm linking up with Judy, so drop by and see other knitting projects.

  1. Those scarfs are sew cute! I haven't a clue how to knit or crochet. I'll stick with quilting.

  6. Ruffled scarves are fun, aren't they? I like the color of yours. Have you seen the fabric "yarn" by Circulo? That is really fun to knit with.

  9. I am now trying to do a scarf like this. Also had trouble with stitches slipping off the needles!

    1. A solution for me was switching to plastic circular needles, or bamboo ones. They don't slide as much as the metal ones.
