Almost finished

I finished 2/3 of the scarf for my lovely pal and I hope I can finish it before this weekend. I'm a fan of packing
This is a part of the scarf. I love its color. And (I guess) it fits my pal's color fave.

Red Herring?

Could someone in this scarf exchange be the recipient of this lovely lace scarf in Panda Silk yarn? Hint, this color is not one of my that my scarf pal chose. The scarf will be quite lovely once it's blocked.

Halfway there

I'm half-way done with the scarf I'm working on, and am ever so pleased! I chose a simple pattern for the elaborate colorway of the Noro yarn, and it is working out nicely.

Soon it will be time to choose the extras, a task I always enjoy.

On a side note, I haven't heard from the partner who is sending to me--just wondering--

Knitting away in Seattle

Hi gals,

I am very excited to be a part of this year's scarf exchange. I have had two fellow knitters who have participated in the past and it was their positive experience that encouraged me to join the fun. I have been busy completing a few baby shower gifts and am happy to share that I am finally done with all my other projects. So I am in the creative stage of ISE for my pal , Glor. Happy Knitting, Maureen

Noro Love

I've made some good headway on the scarf for my pal. I'm using lace-weight Noro in a beautiful colorway of greens and turquoise and a myriad other colors as well. My camera is broken, so I'm not able to take photos yet, but I'm really happy with the way it's working up on size 0 needles. It's delicate and lofty--very nice.

More anon!

Busy working on my scarf this week - have reached the halfway point just now. My (hopeful) goal is to have it done before heading out on holidays later this month. We'll see how the week goes!

First check in

I'm excited to be part of another ISE!

Working Hard

So much post poped up lately.It's so much fun to check the blog everyday.
I'm now working hard on the scarf. I finished 1/3 of it so far:) But I'm not sure it's a great scarf.
I changed my first design. It's hard to decied what to knit but I enjoy it very much.
Can't wait to see what everybody's knitting♥

Have great weekend:)

Smiling Girl

Hi all - checking in

Hi all - So fun to see newbies to the ISE, as this is at least my third time if not more. Hi Leah! I've enjoyed my previous exchanges and look forward to this one too. Usually I'm all "I don't need a functional scarf", as I live in North Carolina... but this year we've had lots of snow and I'm totally dependent on the Aibhlinn my spoiler gave me last time!
My first blog post (thanks to the organizer for reminding me!) so I hope I've done this correctly. Seems like an easy thing this scarf exchange, now I'm fretting about the yarn I picked. I hope it's the right colour but it is on the receipient's list. I've played around with a few patterns to see what looks the best and need to settle on one tomorrow.

Wow,Cant wait!

This is exciting,I hope I get info for Pal soon so I can start the special scarf Ive picked,just want to make sure Ive got it right first!!!Im also just starting a Uni course so this will be my calmer project!

up from the dead

I live ! And so does my computer.

My computer had a nasty virus and I just got it back last week and was finally able to get it up online on Sunday. And then I came down with a cold ! Unfair.

I am slowly working my way out of he piles of Kleenex and totally forgot to check this blog, gar!!!

I love this swap, it's a great way to meet new people and see all kinds of wonderful patterns.


First Exchange!

This is my first exchange, and I'm really pumped!

My pal's scarf is in the works!

Trying this posting thing

I am just technically challenged I think.

I am trying to post like I'm suppose to and I just keep posting to this new blog that I created without wanting to create.

Don't be afriad pal - What I can't do to the computer, I can do to string.

This is so much fun!

This is my second exchange (thanks Karrie for starting this up again) and I thought it would be easier but here it is the second week and I'm still agonizing about pattern and yarn :-(

Thinking of Spring...

So, spring is fast approaching in Brooklyn--the little knobs are coming out on the trees, precursors to actual buds and then to flowers and then leaves! Hooray! As a result of this, I'm feeling a little cheerier and thinking about lighter knitting--in all senses, nice colors, a light about the rest of you?

I'm eager to meet you ladies, so post away!
