I wonder if there's a recovery program for scarfaholics? After all these years of knitting I think that it's still my favorite thing to make, next would be socks. I finally finished my Irish Hiking scarf. What an awesome pattern and easy to do. Of course I needed a proper model to show off the color. My boy loves to be my model but, he thinks that knitting is boring and wishes I'd spend more time paying attention to him I'm sure.
Next on my list is the Fuchsia Lace scarf by Fiber Trends. I am going to do the single vine pattern, I think its a little less busy. I have some lovely heathered plum yarn in a DK weight
What I really should be making are some cotton socks for summer. Cascade fixation is really fantastic yarn for "shortie" summer socks. The weight of the yarn makes them knit up pretty fast too.
Right now I am also dealing with trying to get rid of some bilateral shoulder tendonitis that I've been struggling with over the last month. I should really follow my own advice when it comes to taking care of pain and injuries.
I'll still be knitting along but I may have to work at a little slower pace than I would like. Thanks to everyone who's been leaving commments on my blog, your feedback has been great!!
I ran in to this picture on one of the news services today about this new species of lobster that was found off of Easter island. Personally...I thought that It looked like he was wearing a shrug. :-)
