On the needles

The weather is still gray, windy and rainy, perfect for staying indoors and knitting. I am by no means a good knitter and I can not read a pattern to save my life, but I can knit and pearl which is enough to knit a scarf.

This is my third attempt. The first was unravelled because I was told my needles were much too small for the type of yarn I'm using. The second time I unravelled the scarf because I just didn't like it so here is hoping the third time is a charm.

I can knit and crochet,but I would rather sew or cook.I get frustrated when I goof and have to do it over. I hope your scarf turns out lovely.

Love the colour! It looks really soft and cuddly yarn.

That color is beautiful and hard to work with I'm sure. Fuzzy yarn makes me crazy.Keep up the good work

I've never tried knitting. I'm working on a crochet project, an afghan, but it is coming along very slowly. Maybe I should have picked something smaller for my first item.

If all goes well I'll get up to the cabin tomorrow. My mom is over her cold and a slight case of pneumonia. Plus my cold is just down to a cough. I can't wait! I hope the wind cooperates.

Did you hear about the float cabin on the radio? Just floating near Cassiar Island? Guess it broke loose in the wind last night. I hope all is well at our place when we get there. We've been through some pretty bad blows before. the worst (other than breaking the cables) was a BBQ blown off the deck and the wood stove chimney top lost overboard.

I'm like you when it comes to crocheting. I can't figure out a pattern for love or money. I love knitting, however I love quilting more.
