It is incredibly difficult to take pictures of myself wearing thesethings. This is the last neckwear post for a bit, I will be sharing a few Halloween projects since it is nearly the end of October. I am not sure what sort of costume I will wear, do you have any ideas? What are your costume plans?
Here is a work in progress photo of my latest neckwear project:
I was hoping to have it finished, but I am doing some emergency dress hemming and I ran out of interfacing. Last night I stopped at the store and bought five yards of interfacing so I should be okay for awhile. I will have this project ready for Tuesday's blog post.
It did taste quite delicious though. I don't think you can go really wrong with pumpkin or bread pudding so the combo will always be fantastic*.
*The only time I know of pumpkin something not tasting great was when my Aunt Dot made pumpkin pie using only canned pumpkin - no sugar, no spices, just canned pumpkin. Luckily it was long before I was born so I didn't eat any.
I made this little scarf and am sharing the pattern with you!
This is my second loom knitting "pattern", my first being this Modified Alice Wrist Warmers Pattern. I was playing with different stitches, noticed this interesting texture and decided to share with you.
For this project I used a single skein of Lion Brand Yarn's Hometown USA in Portland Wine (a super bulky acrylic yarn).
Here is the sort of pattern for this cute scarflette.
Knifty Knitter purple rectangular knitting board
Approximately 81 yards super bulky yarn
Large crochet hook
One skirt/kilt pin
Instructions: (links are to instructions from Loom Knitting Help)
1. Cast on 20 pegs (or in multiples of 4) using the long tail cast-on method for the knitting board.
2. Your working yarn should now be at peg 1. Row 1 and odd number rows: *k, yo, p2tog, k; rep from * to end.
3. Now working yarn should be at peg 20. Row 2 and even number rows: *p, yo, k2tog, p; rep from * to end.
4. Repeat steps two and three until scarf is desired length; leave enough yarn to bind off.
5. Bind off using the single crochet bind-off method.
6. Wrap scarflette around your neck, fasten with the skirt/kilt pin, and enjoy!
