Yarn Along

I am still knitting the 400 yard scarf and once again there is little news.
I did FINALLY finish up the "never ending ball of yarn" and I am underway with hank number two.
The scarf is beautiful, in my eyes...made with Alpaca Yarn, it is so soft and cuddly.

Here it is...

Today, it is 44 inches = 3 feet, 8 inches long. I have used 200 + yards of yarn.
Now I can safely say...I am halfway +, done.

This image is not as pretty, but the yarn "pops" against the white.

I am still reading
"Seriously Mum, What's an Alpaca"
It's a very light read about a husband and wife, switching gears later in life
moving to a farm, to raise Alpaca's.

  1. Hello, Debbie. I like your scarf. I guess there is no reason to hurry. It is nice to stay indoors and knit when it is so cold outside. Have a happy day!

  10. Beautiful, beautiful! Your right. How many years have you been knitting my dear? I am starting in my knitting group a baby blanket. I did the two dishcloth's they wanted me to try. I am using the one now. I feel like wow. I actually knitted one at my age.

    We have a all day knitting group in my apt. I am there the second time this Thursady.
