Embroidery, knitting, sewing, spinning, weaving…

New Year, new scarf, new long-term project


Where has the time gone? It’s 2018! The year 2017 flew by for me. Due to my left wrist/arm giving me issues, I haven’t done too much knitting.

However, a few days ago, I started knitting this infinity scarf. It wasn’t until yesterday that I realized that I somehow twisted the stitches…. whoops! That rarely happens and I’m seriously thinking of just leaving the ‘design flaw’ there. If it bothers me too much, I’ll rip out the stitches and start over. I’m a process knitter, so redoing this (which I’ve already restarted this already to create a different stitch) won’t phase me at all.

Last evening, I purchased this yarn and will start making a knitted blanket. It’s Paton’s Dk Superwash wool, the color combination is ‘Welsh Coast.’ I’m wondering how long it will take me to complete? We’ll see…


  1. Ugh! I feel the same way about ripping out. If it bothers me I will do it. Otherwise let it go. No problem either way.
    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year to you also. I finally had a chance to read your website this morning but didn’t have a chance to respond since I had an onsite inspection. I ripped it out shortly after writing this post. No surprise there. I do believe I’ll rip out the newly created scarf and just make mittens. We received snow early this morning and I realized that I didn’t have any knitted gloves or mittens. I do have store bought gloves, but I’ve always wanted to knit gloves and so using that yarn (I adore the color) gives me the perfect excuse to make some for myself.

    Thank you! I really have enjoyed browsing your website. I love sewing. I’m still having arm/wrist issues, but thankfully I can do a few minutes of crafting daily before I have to stop.
