I wasn’t sure if my Mary Poppins inspired scarf would make another appearance for Halloween this year…………..but she is alive & well.
Just starting out
The orders started coming in on Sept 30th…………and just today I’m feeling caught up enough to list the item again in the shop.
Getting one of the scarves ready for the fringe
Total so far? 4 completed and shipped. 1 off the needles, waiting for finishing touches & packaging. 1 on the needles………..should be finished tomorrow and ready to ship on Monday.
And, a finished scarf!
The hat is on my list to figure out for next year! Has anyone tried making this little number yet?
I have had this piece of fabric for a long time. I pulled it out of my ‘stash’ months ago and kept moving it around the studio. I knew what I wanted to make, I just needed to wait for a bit of time and a clear cutting table to lay it out.
I have a thing for roses…..as well as ruffles and when they are combined, I am quite happy! This scarf is a repeat of one I had in my shop last year, same design, different fabric. Roses tho! This was the week and here is the new scarf.
Roses & Ruffles by Stitchknit
This design has a multiple personality, as this works really well as a scarf….obviously, but also works as a shawl due to the larger size. A great addition to your travel wardrobe, acting as a wrap for cooler evenings. If you’re headed to the beach, this works as a swimsuit cover up too, just tie around your hips and you’re all set!
The fabric is lightweight and silky, so it also will work as a dramatic tie on a summer hat. Because of the ruffles running the length of the piece, this will work as a head wrap, sort of turban style too.
I have additional pictures posted here, along with the dimensions and complete description.
That seems to be what most little girls say when they are choosing something! They love it, as long as it’s PINK!
This little scarf is finished off with knitted bows on both ends…………pushing it right off the Cute chart! Perfect for the little girly-girl this winter. I’ve just listed it here in the shop.
And, since it’s election day here in the states…………………I’ve voted! (have you??)
Still on the needles; (or hook, as the case may be)
rust colored, lace weight bit of frothiness. (otherwise known as a scarf!)
the white silk shawl is still mocking me too!
turning the heel today on sock #2 …..and these are for ME
making some granny squares to match the vintage blankets I’m repairing. (these should be done…………oh, maybe winter of 2014!)
I’m getting so close to the end of the month…..I can see that the calendar and my stack of scarves don’t match! That’s right, I’m still knitting like a crazy woman, and I do think I’ll have a scarf a day for all the days of September, but ………… It is getting down to the wire!
Not sure where I left of here, but here’s some pictures of the last few days listings:
Love this! Seafoam green yarn and the stitch is actually called Sea Foam too.
Extra long, cabled scarf in a royal purple wool.
Ribbon Yarn works up to be so unique. Jewel tones with a thread of gold metallic throughout, for a bit of bling!
Back to work here! I have a couple items on the needles, and some fleece just waiting to be turned into winter scarves. I’m determined to finish the month with a scarf a day!
I’m getting slower as September flies by. So, I’m making this quick. Still have to write the draft listing for tomorrows’ scarf, and I’ve got an order for tomorrow AM here, that should be finished before I quit for the night.
Here’s a few more listings for my 30 Scarves in 30 Days for September. For more pictures and complete descriptions, please stop by the shop here. Feel free to buy a couple for yourself or as gifts. I won’t feel bad at all, if I get to the end of September and don’t have any scarves left!
Hard to see, but there is a row of loops made from vintage velvet, and a vintage button on this piece. Buttons up in a variety of shapes.
A chunky cowl, big enough to pull up over your head as a hood, or slip the entire piece down over your shoulders as a wrap.
Smaller scarf, great for a little kiddo. Colorful, easy to maintain, and the right size.
The month of September is off and running! Day 3 already, of my 30 Scarves in 30 Days. I am having so much fun making them, and now sharing them in the Etsy shop and here on my blog. It is so fun to see who likes which piece and which colors ‘speak’ to others!
Todays Creation A knit scarf using 2 strands of this slubby, bumpy thread. Color? I’m struggling with the description of this. Sea green, swimming pool blue, and Carolyn, you said it reminds you of mermaids. :) Since I’ve never seen mermaids, I wasn’t comfortable going with that reference, but there must be mermaids in Texas, right?
Wrapped once and tied once in front
- Folded in half, ends tucked through the folded piece.
- Pretending its’ a cowl………
When I started reading about the 30/30 challenges, and decided to jump in, it was WAY back in June I think. Certainly I had enough time to make 30 scarves, cowls and shawls of some sort? I planned to offer some knit, some crochet and to sew some, so not all of them were going to be involved and on size 3 needles!
Well. I don’t know who took July out of the mix, but somehow, it was already August and without my approval, today pops up as the first of September! So, with a few items still on the needles and hook and a few more stacked up by the sewing table………….Here is Number ONE in my 30 Scarves in 30 Days Challenge:
First Item in my 30 Scarves in 30 Days!
A close up of the stitches used. Very open & lacy!
Worn as a wrap
I chose this piece to lead off the Month of Scarves here, for several reasons. Mainly, we’re just now starting to get our summer weather here in the Seattle area, so I’m not feeling very fall like, just yet. This color seemed to fit my day better here, but not to worry, there are all sorts of scarves, cowls and such coming on a daily basis through September.
All the scarves will be listed in my Etsy shop, but you can go directly to this scarf here.
I love this pattern & plan to use this for #6 in my 30 Scarves in 30 Days event in September. It should be finished in a couple days, then it waits………………
I did spend time this evening, setting out yarn and matching it up to patterns. Now I have 10 project bags all set up and ready to go. When I get these complete, I’ll be half way done! Yikes. Time to get to work!
Even though orange is not on my favorite colors list, I’m warming up to this new scarf I finished this week. See it listed in my Etsy shop, here.
I also love the way this yarn drapes. I was able to pull this through, as if I was going to tie it, which ended up with this rosette sort of arrangement. Love this look.
I will have some knitting time today, as I’m taking foster son to the dentist. That will be it though, as the rest of the day is filled with client fittings and a search for a new oven element. Last nights events here, included the minor explosion when the main oven element here, gave up in a 4th of July type shower of sparks. Switching up some menus for the week, until I can get the element and get it plugged back in the oven here. It’s always something……
