First Intarsia Project

I finished this scarf a couple of weeks ago, but haven't gotten around to getting the pics off my camera card until today.

Martha Stewart's Yarn Show airs tomorrow

Just to let you guys know that Martha's airing a yarn show. As part of it, I think she's going to the Lion Brand factory to have designers show how they come up with new yarns.

deciding on next project

As I knit one project, I'm always thinking about the next 2 or 3 projects and I find that I get my ideas for next projects in different ways. I'll see an interesting stitch pattern, some yarn from my stash finally 'speaks' to me, or I'll see a design that gives me some ideas.

At the moment I'm finishing up one project and have been swatching ideas for my next one and I was wondering what you guys do in figuring out your upcoming projects?

Diagonal Striped Bathroom Rug

I finally finished my bathroom rug. I started last Fall on a coiled version, ripped it out twice and found this stitch to use instead.

Noro-inpsired scarf

I bought the dark variegated yarn in Alaska a couple of years ago and wasn't sure what I'd do with it.

Hi everyone

Just wanted to say hello to everyone. I've been reading this blog for a while, but have been really lazy in not posting any of my projects, etc.
