Section about the "transform chape yarns into Million bucks scarf

Great mohair vintage scarf!! I love this one!!!!

Also men's scarf!!!!!

I saw list about "10 reasons to Knit a Scarf" by great knitter Stepanie Pearl-McPhee from the magazin!!!!

I was ageed with her saying..Number 9? I was laughing so loud!!! LET's A Rob a bank together!!HEHE

1. Eveybody needs one. If you live in a warm place, a scarf is an accessory: if you live in a cold place( like Canada), it's necessity-all that stands between you and certain death.(Okay, not certsin death. Fostbite maybe; chilliness for sure!)

2. A friend of mine likes to say that a winter scarf is "caulking." Wound rounf your neck it bridges the difficult gap a cost leaves at the top and keeps all your heat form escaping.

3. No matter how many coats you won, by the time January rools around, you'll be sick to death of all of them. Owning 20 scarves adds a little color to the endless winter and lets you pretend that you have s different looks.

4. You can skip the gauge swatch with a scarf and have it matter not at all. How could a scarf not fit? (Don't answer that. I'm sure I'll find out.)

5. Scarves are varied in technical difficulry. You can do one in a plain garther stitch, or make a delicate lace wonder. You could knit nothing but scarves your whole knitting career, never repeat yourself, and learn almost every knitting technique.

6. Scarves are easy, at least mostly easy. If you're a beginning knitter, you can get a faulous yarn and let it do all the work.

7. Just a s there's comfort food, there's comfort knitting and a nice plain scarf out of simple delicious wool, knit back and forth in naive,mindless rows, is good for those days when anything more complex would make you cry.

8. A scarf is aways a welcome gift. Even if the recipient lives in Hawaii, a scarf made of a wee slip of silk will be gratefully received

9. If say, you were going to rob a bank(not that you would, that would be wrong) a scarf could be a vital part of your disguise.

10. The scarf is the the gateway to the shawl. There are only so many scarves you can knit before you feel an urge in the shawl direction.

Ok...more yarn to make a scarf!! I guess this weeken is my scarf day!!! see ya....

New Project~~~ "SHAWL"

Hi~~ eveybody? Do youguys miss me? I didn't been post for a week....BECAUSE my class started last week and working full time here~Too Creaze here~~ Sorry about that.....I miss youguys alot..too~~~Iam writing this post right now Sunday mid-night.....And listening "Better Day" by Alfred James Band. I got a CD from "CD Baby"last Saturday... Iam soooo falling in this song..Listening over and over again!!!!Little bit of cello and cross over Atl-Rock together!! Listen HERE
"Better Day" by Alfred James Band
You always were my favorite color
You shine on me like no other love
You've got me falling down, breaking down at your feet
For you I leave my light on
By your grace, shine on, shine on
Your blue eyes carry me up and lift me to better days
I was floating through my life,until you found me
soft words like daydreams,
dripping in wine your tears unfold me.
whispering of my better days you lay me down.
We drank your father's wine
stumbled on your mama's porchand
when I look back now I use that time to carry me to better day
sand the freedom of your laugh that night
tickled to my soul's delight
I would give all myself to keep your spirit free
I was floating through my life,
until you found me
soft words like daydreams, dripping in wine your
tears unfold me.
whispering of my better days you lay me down when
the world comes between us you lay me down.

Do remember last post about "My SO Called Scarf?" This is what i came out with Knit picks yarn ""Shamrock." I thought this yarn is work for MSCS but it looks so bad!!It is hard to see the beautiful stitch and to it is not a soft wool so hard to knit with it!!
Also i was really hard time with this stitch..I was sooo fucking confuse this stitch..What is this fuckling this mean?
"sl 1, K1, psso but before dropping the slipped stitch from the left needle, knit into the back of it* repeat until there is one stitch left"
"P2tog, do not slip stitches off the needle, purl the first stitch again, slip both stitches off needle"
Did you find out?

I try and flogging for many time for a 3 hour..I finlly get the stitch!!! I Do NOT really recomment to this to baginer!!! TOO MUCH CONFUSSON!!!..I Tall ya!!!

So I Chage to other yarn such as leftover Knitpick "Shine" I had for long time!!!

Now you can see the great cross over stitchs!! WOW LOOK AT DOES!! GREAT!! The scarf looka like a baby-blue color but it is GRAY!!!!!

Iam going to wear with my new "Option-G" T-shirt i brought it online!!!!! It will be great match!! Dont you think? OLIVE with GRAY!!!
