She STILL knits.....sometimes

I recently realized that it has been about two years since I last blogged.  As the title indicates, I do still knit...LOL!!!  I just haven't been writing about it.  Chalk it up to busy-ness, lazy-ness, living-ness......

I have learned to do entrelac, which fascinates me.  I have also learned to knit socks!!  I learned from an awesome book Toe Up Two At A Time Socks by Melissa Morgan-Oakes.  This was a great book and I have ear-marked at least five other pairs I want to make.  Next stop, conquering cuff-down!!

My latest obsession (to the tune of six balls of yarn during the Holidays) are the ruffle scarves.  I have been using Sashay by Red Heart.  Here is my latest WIP:

I really love the color changes.  I have two more balls of Sashay.  I am going to try something a little different with them.  Maybe throw in a row of purls every third row or so...just to see what it does to the ruffles......  But first, a hat for my son!!

Oh well, it's getting late and I'm getting sleepy.  Happy New Year all!!!

Hello there ! I love the scarf. I almost bought Sashay the other day but they only had one skein of the color I wanted. I.hope you will be posting a photo of your entralac project soon.
