Grace Knits a LOT!

Knitting mostly but other crafts, too (crochet, cross-stitch, scrapbooking) and life in general.

Hello? Is anyone still reading this?

Hi! Sorry I have been MIA for so long! Work this summer was especially busy and I took several vacations.

I went to Jackson Hole, WY:

The Watersmeet, Michigan (in the UP):

And I did a little can see most of my projects on my flickr photostream or on Ravelry.

My latest thing has been scarves. That I try to knit from the stash. But I bought yarn yesterday at Fiddlehead Yarns to make this scarf:

My So Called Scarf

This is the My So Called Scarf and I knit it up in about 5-6 hours. One skein, baby! You can see my specs on Ravelry. I did add a button hole so I can make this snug for the winter. I may need to buy more of this yarn to make some for gifts! Awesome!

My friend Elizabeth recently posted a knitting "Bucket List" using yarn in her here it goes for the yarn in my stash (and check out the cute hat she made that I designed!):
  1. Snowflake in Cedarwoods (square) shawl
  2. EPS fair isle yoke cardigan
  3. Hidcote Garden shawl
  4. Jaali Sweater
  5. colorwork mittens of my design--still thinking about this one and since I have so much sock yarn, I have a ton of variety to choose from
  6. knee high socks
  7. February Lady Sweater
  8. Tomten-child size
And I still have yarn left over! I am pretty sure that I can add to this list...I just got the new Mason Dixon book and there are some great patterns! 

Thanks for reading and I promise that I will not wait 5 months to blog again! I have some great autumn foliage shots that I want to share.

I've become obsessed with knitting so I'll be checking in regularly to see what you are up to. I have my crazy hats on my blog and I'm going to add more soon. I'm a bit obsessed with hats right now. Cheers!
