A basket weave scarf was finished a couple of weeks ago. I knitted it out of some unmarked wool that was in my stash. It was intended to be a gift, but didn't get finished in time. It will eventually be a gift for someone now LOL
I have also started a pair of simple stockinette stitch socks. My goal this year is to knit three pairs of sock, each increasing in difficulty. Sock knitting has never been my favorite, but I want to keep the skills I do possess. I am knitting these with unmarked ball of Superwash Wool on size 2 needles using the Magic Loop method. To me, Magic Loop is the way to go for socks. Double-pointed needles are a pain to maneuver.
Above is my February MAGAM project. I will make View C. It is fairly simple, and I have wanted to make it for quite some time out of the animal print fabric I have had in my stash. My quandary is the tie belt. I have black fabric that will work for the tie belt, but I really would like to have a genuine leather tie belt. Will the skin flint in me win out? We must wait and see!
In other news, I bought myself a Kindle Fire HD, and love it. I use it mainly to read, but do piddle around on the web with it as well.
