On the Needle-19 Oct

I started a new scarf pattern called
"Organic Scarf" by Chalice.
You can find the pattern on Ravelry.com
 
The Yarn is Simply Soft by Caron in grey.
 
As it turns out, the pattern designer
is in my local knit group, which is
doubly nice, since I needed help
with her pattern.
 
From this pattern, I learned how
to "make one" stitch, which increased
the scarf cast on from 240 stitches to
480 stitches.
 
Loving this pattern!

Free is good!

I was cleaning out a box my
sister-in-law gave me of items
from a antique store.
 
And in said box, I found a scrap of fabric...
 
So I made an apron.
 
And everyone can always use another apron, right!

Change is a comin'

I am ready for change...
 
Real change...
 
I have felt like I am stuck in a rut for
way to long...weeks...months...a year or more!
 
I need to make some drastic changes
to move towards the life I really want,
instead of the life I am existing in...
 
I decided to list the important things in my life:
 
1.Family
 
Spouse.
 
Daughter Elizabeth (with her spouse Brandon)
 
Son Marc
 
and daughter Victoria.
 
I also have a daughter-in-law and 
5 grandchildren (with #6 on the way in 2013)
 
My parents
 
(Early photo of them with my brother)
They are no longer physically with me
here on Earth, but eternity in my heart.
 
2. I am a member of
Most people know us as Mormons.
My religion is very important to me.
 
3.My creativity:
I need create constantly.
I feel like it is almost part of my
very physical body and I need
to be able to let it out..express it...share it!
 
What does this list tell me?
I'm not sure right now, but I am
going to keep coming back to this
little list to help me figure out
who I am and what I want!

KCWC-Day 1

My first day of sewing as part of the
kcwc Fall 2012 sewathon.
 
I started sewing flannel jammie bottoms
for the grand kids for Christmas.
The blue pair are for my Grandson.
 
The pink and striped flannel blanket
behind the jammies is for the
newest Grandchild...she is due in 2013!
 
I made the blanket from a video
tutorial on YouTube. It is a
self-binding blanket. Very easy
and very quick!
 
Tomorrow...probably more jammies!

On the Needle

I said I wasn't going
to start any new projects
until I finished knitting the
Sinful Scarf, but...
 
I need something new to inspire me!
 
I am going to either start this crocheted cowl
 
 or a knit cowl,
(that I do not have a photo or
website link too)
 
Either way, it's not going to
be the Sinful Scarf today!
