More knitting!

 I had to have knee surgery a few weeks ago, and since then I obviously haven't been getting around too much. Knitting has become my best friend! I made this Diagonal lace scarf with Caron Simply Soft yarn. I used Helena Frank's Diagonal Lace Scarf pattern, found here on Ravelry is always an awesome site to go to for patterns! The scarf does have a tendency to roll up, though, so unless you can block it I wouldn't recommend the pattern.

 And now to my all time favorite scarf! I didn't plan on this working out so well, with the color changing and the pattern changing at almost the same points, but it did. I love it! This one I have to keep for myself, because it's my all-time favorite color combination. It's also one of my favorite patterns due to its simplicity. I used Deborah Norville's Serenity Chunky Weight yarn. I did a simple basketweave pattern that goes as follows:
Co 25 sts (or any multiple of 5)
Row 1: (K5, P5) to end of row
Row 2: (P5, K5) to end of row
Repeat for 5 rows
Row 6: (P5, K5) to end of row
Row 7: (K5 P5) to end of row
Continue alternating the stitches every 5 rows.
Basically, you want squares of stockinette and reverse stockinette stitches to alternate. It's very simple. And I love the results on this scarf!


  1. Wow, those scarves are amazing! I just took up knitting and I am loving it. So calming. :-)
