Just checking in -- is everyone staying warm?
The kids had three days off of school these past due weeks (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) because of the wind chill. There were rumors that they might be off today too, but fortunately
they went back.
I finished the second infinity scarf for my mom, and as usual when I make something for her, I didn't take a picture of it. LOL I actually thought she wouldn't take it, but she loved it as soon as she saw it and ran off with it.
It was the same pattern as my practice one, but with lighter weight of the same yarn, in a brighter (by request) color and a few extra stitches to keep the length the same. I also used only two skeins, instead of three, so it is not as bulky. My daughter still loves the big bulky one I made first and apparently still gets a lot of comments on it. She likes to use it as both a hood and a scarf.
I'm thinking about making another one for myself. All of my scarves are in the wash right now and I'm currently without one of my own. (That is, they are all in a basket needing to be washed but I keep forgetting to actually wash them. I keep changing my mind what I'm going to wash them with.)
Since I'm without a scarf of my own, I'm currently wearing the scarf I made for my youngest. He says he doesn't mind if I wear it.
It's a bit shorter than I like, but long enough to wrap around my neck, so I guess it's all right. It is a 2x2 rib pattern made from red Lion Brand Homespun, squishy and warm.
It's also little itchy -- which is why *he* doesn't like to wear it -- I think because I didn't pick out ALL of the wood chip pieces stuck to it. (The ones left are really tiny.) I don't know what he does on the playground that gets so many tiny pieces caught in his scarf! I made similar scarves for my other two kids and they don't complain about itchiness, which they used to do when their scarves were superwash wool, instead of acrylic.
