Well, you know the old saying: The best laid plans..... (Robbie Burns, I think)
But still, hope springs eternal so here is a plan for you and me:
Beginning of March: the mitered scarf and variations. Yup, I'll show pics and give instructions and you are invited to knit along. Here's what you need:
1 skein of variegated sock yarn, or a solid or semi-solid.
2. Leftover sock yarn
3. a solid and a variegated that lives with it.
4. Size 5-6 needles, any kind, whatever makes you happy.
5. Nerves of steel, hands of iron, and a willingness to laugh at our mistakes. OK, this part's not necessary. But bring along a sense of fun.
6. A pair of scissors.
When? March 1 or thereabouts.
Here are some ideas of what you can do with this. I have to give you a warning: this kind of knitting is addictive. Everything else falls by the wayside. Just telling you.
