SP7 and Branching Out




Well so far SP7 is going well....yeah I know, it's only being going for like 3 minutes so far, seeing that we only received our names yesterday....but I got a really cool spoilee this time around and I'm excited to get started....

In other news...I finished my aunt-lina-birthday scarf, "branching out" from knitty. it came out pretty cool....the weirdest coink-a-dink was that knitknitknitknit brought up the pattern the other night when we were hanging out NOT knowing that I was in the process of knitting it...oooooaaahhhh weird!

Anyway...it came out really nice, and I know my aunt is going to love it....and I love it because:
1. I conqured my fear of laces
2. it served as a stash-busting session, since I didn't buy new yarn for the project.
3. the yarn was a gift from sp6, Susan.
4. I had enough yarn to make a little scarf for my SP6 bear (which was a Christmas bear, but I couldn't bring myself to putting her away until next Christmas, so I converted her to a scarfy-year-around bear).

One annoying thing that I've run into for the second time, although, much worse this time....is the wavy cast-on....but strait cast-off....grrr....how do I fix this???

Cristina, a friend of mine gave me a Chococat for Christmas. She came with a matching orange hat and scarf set. I was planning on doing the same thing as you did for Bear-Girl (oops or is it a guy?) so I was pleased to see that great minds create alike!
