Yarn, Yarn Everywhere!

Again, I have to try the 'more difficult' things! Somehow doing something simple isn't much of a challenge! When I went to my first meetup with the 'Intown Knitters' and shared with them that I was making my scarf with 5 yarns they all gasped! That surprised me--their gasp. One lady asked, "So you're carrying around 5 balls of yarn?" I quickly said no and explained that my yarns were already spun together. But it made me think, "so what's so difficult about carrying around 5 balls of yarn?"

Well, I'm not carrying around 5 balls, but I am carrying around 3. I figured three would be enough to start with! And, to my surprise, it's quite, I'm already bored with this project! It's a simple pattern, one my cousin, Emilie, shared with me. So between all the other FUN projects, I'll work on this one! It will be a blanket when it's finished!

It's a diagonal blanket pattern. I've started at one corner of the blanket with 5 stitches, increasing each row until I get to about 210 stitches, then I'll start decreasing until I'm back at 5 stitches. See, it's simple.

I can't believe you knit! I really want to learn. I got a sewing machine for Christmas, but it's been so long since I've sewn that my seams are crooked. I wish we could get together so you could give me some "free" lessons. LOL

Congrats on all your beautiful work!
