Back in the Saddle

It seems like it has been years since I last posted. I have been knitting, but nothing particularly noteworthy. I used the leftover yarn from my co-worker's hat to make a scarf for her. I neglected to take a picture of it, however. It was just simple stripes--nothing innovative. It is pretty, though, and she likes it a lot

I got a started on that felted wreath from Knit Simple, but I lost steam when I realized that the yardages given in the pattern are incorrect and that I'll probably need to buy more yarn. That demoralized me so much that I've set it aside for the time being. I intend to finish it, but it won't be ready until Christmas 2007. I can work on all those small pieces next summer, when it's too hot to work on a big project.

Another co-worker has commissioned a long, skinny Moebius strip scarf, and we're going to try to find yarn for it next Tuesday during our lunch hour, but until then I've just been working on some small, random stuff to sell (e.g., baby hats and scarves). I'm just not in the mood to tackle anything big. I'm feeling uninspired right now. Maybe it's just because I've been focused on getting ready for my big annual holiday potluck tonight. Once it's over, I'll be able to think about knitting again.

Enjoy the weekend, and keep on knitting!

Hope you had a great time .I can guess what a potluck is . I can't concentrate on knitting but I must get at least two more scarves made before Christmas.
