I have lots of hobbies. I love to read, write, bake, sew, knit and crochet and those are just a few. I also love to run, play tennis and hike.
But, lately, I've been focusing on my knitting a little more. I love to visit yarn shops and walk around and look at the beautiful colors and touch the textures and fabrics. Plus, I've been looking at youtube videos on-line.
Here's one new site I just found that I'm enjoying:
She lists patterns, shows designs and even has youtube videos where she shares monthly favorites.
I've spent some time finishing a few projects I was working on. Mine aren't anything fancy. I just knit for fun. But I finished a scarf I was working on for my son.
I bought this beautiful, chunky, bluish-purple yarn at The Stitching Post in Sisters Oregon, which is really famous for their Quilting Festival in July but they have some beautiful yarns too.
I started the project when I went to my niece's wedding in January and when we got back home I put it away. But I figured if I didn't finish it soon, the warm weather would roll in (I hope) and my son would never wear the scarf. So, I pulled the project out of the closet and went to work.
You can't tell by the photo above, but this is a really lush wool, so soft and thick. Perfect for cold, wet, windy Portlandia days.
