Day 64

I am thankful for the community of knitters and crocheters at  Ravelry  As with any hobby it's fun to get to know people from all over the world who like to do what I like to do.  There is such a wealth of knowledge and information that comes with these 600,000+ enthusiastic people.

I decided to take another day for scarf knitting today.  I even knit during some down time at church this morning instead of coming home between early service and 11 a.m. Bible class.  The scarf is now 58 inches long.  Whoohoo!  I'm going to try to get an inch or two done every evening.   I'm shooting for about 75 inches which my Rav acquaintances are telling me is about right for a scarf that loops around the neck once or twice and still has enough length to "look right".   If all goes well I could be done as early as a week from now.  Of course, now that I've said that I'll have hindrances left and right!

Mid afternoon.  This view appears frequently as it's easy to walk outside and take a picture.  We're not due for rain for a few days but I'll take interesting cloudy skies even without rain.

 Since it's been such a knitterly day I decided on my next project in consultation with Sis.  I was gifted with several skeins of this yarn: 

I'll have to take a daylight photo.  The yarn is more berry, plum, rhubarbish than this picture shows. 

We've decided on a scarf and pattern.  Once I get Steven's scarf done I'll have another project ready to go.  Yay.

  2. Rhubarbish! What a great word! Alas, but says it's not a word. However this is: :)

  3. Lol! Maybe I've coined a new word! I like rhubarby, too.
