Off & On the Needles - 9/18/15

Another week with a finish. The crochet scarf is done. I think it turned out pretty good for just learning crochet. The designer even asked if she could feature my picture on her pattern page.

Right after completing the scarf, I cast on for the first Loopy Ewe school assignment - a pillow. Two of the three pieces are done. I should be able to complete the last piece this weekend and maybe even get it seamed together.  I need to find some buttons for it too. The pattern is Independent Pillow. The yarn is Cascade 128 Aran in Melon. This is my first time knitting with the Aran weight. It won't be my last. I'm not an orange person, but I love this color!

Have you heard about the Scoreboard KAL? You choose your favorite football team's colors, whether it be college, high school or NFL. You knit a scarf and the pattern is based on the score of the game for the entire season. Check out the link above to learn more. At the end of the season you'll have a unique scarf. I'm thinking of doing it. My local yarn shop is doing it and has been emailing the results each week.

Your crocheted scarf looks pretty. You are a quick learner.
