Hot Waffles

LinkThis is Knitspot's newest pattern, and it whipped up in a jiffy! I used Mission Falls, and modified the earband by reducing it to 2" and also knitted the hat to 5" before starting the decreases. I vowed there would be no Christmas knitting this year, but this is going in my daughter's stocking. The matching fingerless mitts might not make it before Christmas!

Don't let the name fool you

I decided I had to start that little scarf. It was easy-going, yet elegant and I had a skein of Briar Rose grandma's blessing (thank you again, Karen) that I have been saving for just the right thing. That little scarf was going to get wipped up in no time flat. Um, well, not so much.

I have cast-on, knit, and ripped, repeating the process at leas 10 times. I think I could have the entire scarf finished by now. This is one of those patterns I can't seem to anticipate, and tinking back, is nearly impossible (for me . . . perhaps you'll have better luck). I have to give this little scarf my full attention while I knit. Ann said, that she knit this little thing on her commute to work a few years back---I can't even seem to get going while sitting in a quiet room. That little scarf is not so little a project!
