Plain Jane Knits Up A Storm

A few musings about my needlecraft hobbies - knitting, crocheting, quilting, & cross-stitch along with my other love, genealogy. While growing up, I used to HATE the term "Plain Jane", but when it comes to knitting & crocheting, I've realized that I really *am* a Plain Jane in that I don't use fancy yarns.

Photos, Photos, Photos!!

I finally got around to taking a few photos of recent projects - these are all for my K4 group.

The first is a hat & scarf set knit from WoolEase knit together with a Lion Brand fancy yarn with little pompoms. The photo of the hat is from the top. The WoolEase has flecks of the same colors which made for a neat pairing. This set & the following scarf will go into the case at the Sr. Center in hopes of raising $$ for more yarn.

The second scarf is knit in Simply Soft on the diagonal with garter & elongated stitches for interest. I haven't measured it from end to end, but it's long enough that I had to fold it to get it all in the picture. Max, as usual, is interested in anything I put on the floor.

These two sweaters will probably be the last of the Knit4Kids Toddler sweaters I'll make this year. I'll turn them in on Thursday, then in a week or so, they'll be travelling to the Red Bird Mission in Kentucky when a group from the local Methodist Church travels there for a week of volunteer work.

I'm also working on a sweater for my DH - adjusting the pattern because I think I'm a skein shy of having enough to make it as long as the last one that had pockets & a wide collar. This one will be a bit shorter, no pockets & simple ribbing around the neck. Also on the needles, a knit lap robe (my hands have been hurting a bit when I crochet lately), dishcloths & a pair of socks. I'll try to get some more photos before the camera batteries discharge and/or the cats shed so much fur that I have to run the sweeper again.
