Feather and Fan Scarf

I found this simple pattern to make the scarf for Tori
I didn't want to make a complicated pattern and a stockinette stitch was too this is what her scarf will look like. I got it out of the KNIT SCARVES! book by Candi Jensen.
Simple simple and cool. The fibers are a mix of Cotton, Acrylic and other fibers (microfibers etc). The nubbies are going more on one side than evenly all over, so we'll see how this will come out. I might have to knit with 2 skeins so that they will flow all over....As I am increasing the length, it is going all over...slowly.....
Go Mustangs! Go Cal Poly!

Viva...Las Vegas! Knit Las Vegas

Do they knit in Las Vegas??? INDEED!!! they do! I found this cute little shop in Henderson, and was not able to resist buying something! I was so excited in this shop that I didn't take any photos inside! I did purchase a few skeins... to make a scarf for Tori, although I am not sure what pattern I will use. I will have to check out a few of my books to see what I can come up with!

Ready - Boot ready!

Boot Boots Boots! I found these cool UGG boots at the New Marshalls that they opened by my house...The cool cable knit looks so cool. I can't imagine paying this much for them but I just had to take a picture of them!

I did break down and buy some boots. RAIN BOOTs....and too cool too. They are rubber boots for rain, and they only LOOK KNITTED!!!

NOW..I can't wait for rain! (not really, I know when you pray for some rain, it won't stop raining but now I really am...ready for this?? Really ready for a Rainy Day!

Aren't they cute?!!
I need to still try to find some clear boots for some handknitted socks that I will SOMEDAY make! ha!
