Since I can't work on my rag quilts while I'm in the city, I have been knitting a scarf. I used to knit a lot, and have finished several sweaters, but that was before I had six kids! Since I've been here, I started and finished a scarf based on a pattern in Carri Hammett's book Scarves and Shawls for Yarn Lovers. Take a look.
It is done in a broken rib stitch, two by two on the front, and all knit on the back. Not only did I get it finished, but I also opened an etsy account and listed it for sale. Check it out at www.countrybydesign.etsy.com. You can see more pictures there. Now I'm excited about working on another one.
I laid out a table runner with purple and green squares before I left the country on Tuesday. Can't wait to get back home and work on it. I've never used that color combination before. It is all homespun plaids, so I hope it works.
