I decided to join the A Year of Projects Blog-A-Long this year over on Ravelry.com I think this is a great way for me to keep a running list of projects that I want to complete and be able to share something new each week here on the blog.
I have been knitting a lot again since the first of July so I want to share some of the projects that I am working on.
These skeins of yarn were purchased to be an Elizabeth Zimmerman Mitered Blanket.
This is finished project # 1 for the month. It is a one ball scarf. it was knit on US#7 needles in garter stitch with Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn . I cast on 30 stitches and just knit until I was almost out of yarn. You need about 2 yards left to bind off and weave in the ends. I love this yarn and I have used it before in one of my most popular projects the Faux Broomstick Lace Infinity Scarf.
This project is a short row shell shawl. It is called Spring Shells. It is a free pattern on Ravelry.com and I love how it is working up. I started out to only use one colorway for the whole shawl but after a couple of shells and seeing the the yarn colorway repeat is complete on one shell I knew I needed more colors to make it pop. So I picked up my go to yarn for self striping Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn and choose 3 different colorways to use. I am working 36 shells for the completed shawl so I will make 12 shells in each color so that they will blend well.
Here is a list of projects that I hope to finish over the next year. This is not work related projects just projects that I feel I want to create for myself or for gifts.
