Well, I have several projects going on at once. I am doing a scarf for my MIL, I’m doing one for me, which I’ll post here in a bit, I’m still working on the shrug, and I haven’t even started the afghan for Alesa.
Let me start by showing you all the scarf that I’m makeing for me. I really loved the colors from my Very Colorful Blanket and had planty leftover to make me a scarf, so that’s what I did. I wanted something that really showed off all the colors but didn’t want it to look just like the blanket, not very warm that way, so I decided to make it diagonal. I remember watching Knitty Gritty and saw a guy knitting on the diagonal, so I found the link and here is what I’ve made so far.
This is the front that looks really nice, but I like the back side a bit better.
I’m having alot of fun with this project and can’t wait til it’s done. Here is the link if anyone wants it.

As for my shrug, I’m still working on it but I think I’m going to run out of yarn soon. Because it was from a recycled sweater and the stiches were larger I don’t think I’ll have enought to make it just as shown. So I’m going to make the sleeves 3/4 sleeves and hope that that will help. I’d hate to have to frog the whole thing.
Hope everyone is having a great Wed. Until the next project…
