My knitting project
Well, 1 skein of 4 knit, 2- 3 more to go. This is supposed to be a Cape Cod Shell Scarf using Frog Tree Alpaca yarn. The pattern called for 4 skeins but I am thinking that 3 will do very nicely. You can see the pattern here: www.kyarns.com/frog-tree-alpaca-knitting-patterns.html . Anyway, I don't think that my scarf looks anything at all like what it is supposed to so I am a bit disappointed because the store sample was beautiful... but I still like it and have invested a fair amount of time already, so I will keep going. It isn't like I don't know how to knit... for the life of me I can't figure out how to get the pattern to look like it is supposed to. Oh well, it is an easy pattern and fairly mindless - after a long day I do like to sit down and knit a few rows. When I finish this - I really should finish my Nordic ski sweater, ah, but that requires me to actually concentrate - HA!
