Oh, Joy!

Today, I wanted to share with you a FO!  It seems like it's been ages since I've had one, but now I do.  The fuzzy scarf is f-i-n-i-s-h-e-d!  YAY!  What did I learn?  Bamboo needles are a miracle.  On Friday evening, I decided to finally sit on the couch and watch a movie.  It's been a while.  I carefully replaced my aluminum needles with a bamboo set I had stashed away and I was stunned at how much faster I was able to go.  Also the bamboo needles were shorter, closer to the actual width of the project.  I think that helped too; reducing awkward rotations.

So, I finished up the scarf last night (I'll deliver it on tomorrow) and cast on a new project.  I won't tell you what, but I will give you a hint:  mono, mono!  (Yeah, it's in Spanish.)

Then, during the day today, I checked my email and found out that I won a giveaway on KraftyKash's blog!  A set of stitch markers!  Maybe it's a sign that my knitting will get better and better.  Maybe one day I'll even knit a shawl!

Today has been a-ok.  This afternoon I got some more feedback on the name that I will definitely take into consideration.  I won't bug you all again.  When I come back with it, it will be a done deal.  And then perhaps I'll have my own giveaway to celebrate!


  1. Pretty scarf!

    May I wade in on the new name? Is there a reason you are using the "K" as in Krafty Kreations in your sidebar poll? I do like the Art by Design.

    You are very talented and with a klitchy name, ;o) people are going to thing 'crafty' and not 'artist.'

  2. I have to agree with you Sherry about the "K"s. It started when I started using "K"s in my blog title and spun out from there. My username most craft places is kreativedesigner and I think we were all trying to stay within those boundaries, but stepping out of it is also good.

    Thanks for the scarf compliment and for your input!
