I take my knitting everywhere to take the edge off of moments that would otherwise drive me stark raving mad. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

Let me begin by saying that I hate the fact that I cannot get a good picture of my knitting with my damn camera. Ugh. This scarf is awesome and these pictures do not do it justice at all.
The scarf is Holey Cocoa! by Silvia da Silva. It is a simple 2 row scarf that it easy and fast to knit. I was able to watch tv (NCIS season 3) while knitting. The yarn is Noro Tanabata in colorway 6, mint/sunflower. I love this yarn. It is colorful and fun and surprisingly soft. I got the yarn at the Clever Ewe about a year ago. It was on sale...maybe a buy one get one? I got 4 of them and I did not pay very much for it.
So yeah, these terrible pictures just do not do this scarf justice. It is so much better looking than this. Oh well, I love this scarf and that is what counts! I can wear this with just about anything :-)
Hello! Welcome to my knitting (and other odds and ends) blog. I grew up watching my Grandma knit. It seemed like she was always with needles and yarn. It must have made an impression on me because now I knit as much as I can.
Stay a while. Check out the knitting and watch out for stray bits of yarn.
