You did what?

So, in addition to recently discovering podcasts, I also discovered the wonderful goodness of Knitter's Review. I am on that forum all the time, reading away. Anyway, there was one about worst project or something. So I posted about the twenty foot scarf I once knit accidentally. It was, I think, the second thing I tried to knit. I wanted a scarf knit longways and, knowing nothing of gauge and swatches I ended up with this disaster:
Sock included for scale.

Anyway, there were some people who seemed interested in it, so I said I would post some pics. Even though I knit this three years ago, I can't frog it or toss it(I mean, it's made with cheap acrylic so tossing would be an option). It's a reminder of the knitter I used to be. I like having it in my closet. :)

My Embossed Leaves are coming along nicely. A heel has been turned on sock number 1. We are getting there. I have not done a whole lot of knitting in the last week, but I am going on vacation on the 16th, so there will be a lot of knitting accomplished then. My plans in knitting over the next 2-3 weeks are as follows:

1. Finish Embossed Leaves socks
2. Finish Soleil.
3. Knit something for the bridal shower I have to attend in July (I got the invitation today). :)

Tomorrow afternoon I am hoping to dye some more yarn. Earlier in the week I got this: Oh, that is a lot of yarn. Guess there is no turning back on this Etsy thing. :) My plan is to dye up this stuff and then wait and see if I can sell it. So far I have sold one item. I was quite excited about it! Hopefully one will turn into two, two will turn into four. . . .

Happy Knitting!!!

  1. I had 'one of those scarves' once too! Looked okay on the needles until it was time to cast off and then I could see this thing literally unfolding on the floor, lol!

    This Etsy thing sure is a lot of fun, isn't it. That is a lot of yarn to dye.

    I am glad that you found my blog, I love finding new knitting blog friends :)

  4. Hi, I found your site from the Knitters Review forums. I made one of those scarves too, but not quite twenty feet! Wow! Mine was supposed to be a gift, and I was so upset when it came off the needles, and it just got bigger and bigger. It was in ribbing as well, so it stretched. I just gave up and made a normal scarf instead, lol.

  5. Ha ha ha. That's hysterical. My very first blog post was about things I should not have knit. There are quite a few....

  6. One of my girlfriends just directed me to your etsy shop. Your yarns are absolutely beautiful and as soon as I'm off my yarn diet at the end of the summer, I'm coming with my credit card in tow! The colors are absolutely amazing. The sock yarns at my LYS aren't nearly as vibrant.
