The Yarnarian Plans for March.

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.

Pattern News: Available today! The Judy Sock Pattern! On Ravelry.

New yarn on Etsy: Abiding Love.

Sue, Bishop, Cathy - Wait until you see how delicious a scarf made of just one skein of sock yarn can be around your neck. You'll end up making these things for everyone for nex winter and for presents.

Looks like fun. I have the perfect yarn for a scarf. My daughter just started the mitered square blanket and she is loving it.
