Woodland Scarf

Happy weekend! Well, my first week back to work is over and I'm proud to say that I've survived. It was actually nice to be back although I kick myself for coming back at such a busy time. If I had only waited one more week I could've gotten out of writing those dreaded year end and quarter end reports. Next time.

The agenda for today consists of laundry (lots of laundry), tidying the house, cleaning the bathroom, knitting, and if there's time, baking peanut butter cookies. Over the week I didn't have much time to knit much of the Woodland but here it is, about eleven inches in.
I probably shouldn't have used a somewhat slubby yarn as it doesn't show off the pattern as well but I still like it and I still enjoy knitting the pattern. Hope your shawl version is coming along too.

Someone should probably grab me by the knitting needles and stop me before I cast on for yet another project but I really, really, really want to make one of these beauties. It's been bitterly cold here and I could sure use something pretty like this to keep me warm on those early mornings when it's minus 30 fahrenheit. I've got some left over Cascade 220 in raspberry that would be oh so lovely for this. Something tells me that it's going to happen regardless of the baby blankets that need finishing and starting and the skirt that lays untouched again for another week.

I hope that you are having a great weekend. You are such a terrific and crafty mom, I can only aspire to be as good as you.
