A Secretary Is Not A Toy: W.I.P.

“Not a toy to fondle and dandle and playfully handle In search of some puerile joy…

This shawl/scarf is a fast knit; if I could just memorize the lace edge. Coming along nicely. The pattern calls for six side leaves, ten center leaves and six final leaves, and indicates a length of 69 inches. Because the recipient is shorter, I am only doing five, nine, five leaves. I also thought this might get me through only one skein, but now I am worried. I’ve already called CSNanaCat for a ride to Micahels to buy another skein for just-in-case purposes.

“A secretary is not a toy, no my boy…

Coming along nicely, after two lace pattern increase repeats of Saroyan, by Liz Abinante. This is the knitted gift scarf for Debbie at the Joslyn Center, Recreation Park, El Segundo, California. She’s a 656 “Real Teal” fan and has saved my but a couple of times when I have forgotten my name badge.

Finally found a pattern – Hoodie Cowl by Jessie Rayot – that will match the black/blue yarn I received from El Segundo Slipt Stitchers (ESSS) Rosa. At least, I think so. The pattern calls for a K size or similar and I think that will match the weight of the yarn.

I believe I saw correctly; this is a crochet hoodie pattern.

I also found this pattern: Saroyan by Liz Abinante. Red Heart Super Saver Real Teal  is for the knit gift scarf I’ll be making for the ESSS secretary, Debbie.

I’ll be using Helvellyn by Lily Kate France to make another hoodie – knit this time – with this Ella Rae Mega in Royal Blue that I acquired before Needlepoints West closed.

Crazy Over You

“Every time I dream that were together;
knowing just how much I really love you;
you step into the room and steal my heart away;
can I live this dream just one more day?
