Yarn along + Everyday Beauty (the challenge)

31 Aug

This is the first project I ever made for me.  For some reason, I forget to ever put it on my blog.  I wear this scarf all the time.  Pattern is the one I shared here.    As I was learning to knit and slowly making my way through Sophia’s knit blanket I kept seeing this bamboo yarn in the knit shop.  The pattern is really quite simple, and I do love it’s bank for your buck appearance.  Through the wonders of the internet a talented yarn-loving lady in South Africa stumbled upon my humble blog.  Several of the ladies in her craft share have knit up this project.  This is what I love about knitting and the crafting community.

Ravelry notes here.

From last week’s yarn along, my knitting progress it looks quite a bit like last week’s except the stitches are no longer twisted!!!!  I finished A Homemade Life by Molly Wisenberg.  I continued to enjoy it and have ear marked several of her recipes to try.  I am going to try her slow roasted tomatoes with a pinch of coriander today.  I think they would be delicious on a turkey sandwich.

………..

As for another idea peculating with me:

Everyday Beauty.  For the month of September I am having a little photo challenge to try and capture more of the everyday.   A little beauty amidst the craziness. A month to be a seeker of beauty.  30 photos to see the simplicity and loveliness of the here and now.  I would love if you would join me.  {leave me a little note, if you would like to join in}

linking up with ginny for another week of yarning along.

    Lovely scarf. I’m the same way – most everything I make I make for other people. But this fall I’m doing some knitting for me as well. Much fun.
