ok, the owls are done......

not a very good pic, I know.

The next project is going to be a tendril scarf......intarsia and cables, what's not to like?
Can't start it until the 1st, though, so you'll just have to wait.

In the mean's just been way too hot to knit. Watering and gardening have taken all of my time.

I am stocking up some things for craft projects this winter, scrabble???
It will be a fun test.

owls, oh my

This year, I decided to do virtual knitting summer camp. I know, I don't really need more yarn, but the idea was to make Christmas presents. So far, that part isn't working out too well.

The first project needed to be 400  yds.....easy enough. I chose the owls in the thicket cowl. It's nearly done and I'm liking it. Not going to be a present, except for me.....

I struggled with the second one....needs to be 600 yards. I REALLY don't need to buy more yarn, really, but I just couldn't give up the idea of playing with the cool kids. SO, this one will be about technique. I'm making the tendril scarf. It's cables, it's intarsia (new for me), what's not to love. Not a Christmas present though.....again......

I'm pretty sure the next one will be the biggie.....the 1200 yard requirement. Still don't need more yarn, but I'm eyeing a blanket......just sayin' (no, not a present either).

The whole present thing doesn't seem to be working out too well.....hmmmm......
