yup I'm getting side tracked with new knitting projects... you know, that will happen when you start looking around on all these great blogs not to mention Ravelry. I really want to get my Christmas sweater done in time for Valentines Day but its getting a little boring same stitch over and over and over ..... well you get my point. while looking around on line I looked up some video's on doing some Fare Isle knitting technique's ( it fascinates me) and I found a video on carring a second color up the side of your work thus, the scarf ~ it was fun and so easy ~ no tying on and weaving all those end's

Then I found a pattern for a Hat that I must make for my brother using the Fair Isle method so I cast on for that one too. so far so good but I'm having to modify it a bit cause he's a big boy now. like 45!

Have a good one

A Couple of Things

finally I have finished Shayne's "Christmas" Sweater. and will be giving it to him for his Birthday in October! I'm not really sure why this took me so long to finish other than I kept getting distracted with other knits. easy pattern to knit and I really like the way that it turned out. and my second knit for this last week was a poncho for my niece who is turning 6 this year. I cant wait to get it to her. super fun and fast knit I used this FREE pattern
and modified it by casting on 10 more stitches. the only thing that I would do differently next time is to use this method for the color change instead of tying on all those new colors and weaving all those ends. oh well I'm learning!!!
Happy Monday !!!
