Knitting Season Starts Early This Year

i taught myself how to knit a few years ago and somehow i managed to create a new way of doing it hahah it's like backwards and upside down but i don't care, it looks fine to me. the only downside is that all i can do is make scarves and blankets because they are flat..... oh well hah i loveeeeeee knitting even if it comes out a little weird, no one can really tell besides me i don't think..... anyways i didn't know it was gonna be so cold so fast this year so this weekend i was knitting like a madwoman so i can wear something before the snow starts!!!!


so my first new project of the season is a scarf using the color above. it's called "dusty blue" and i think it's wicked pretty.... it'll look nice with a black coat for work, or also just with gray sweatshirts and stuff.... plus it's my faaaave yarn - lion brand homespun - which is sooo soft.......


and then this is the yarn i am using on a blanket i started last winter and will be working on until the end of time.... it's called grape but i would say it's more of an eggplant purple, if you will..... since i don't know how to read knitting patterns i just sorta winged it, and i guess i made the blanket WAY too long so that's why it's gonna take forever.... BUT once it's done it will be humongous- big enough to cover my whole bed...... it's an accident that will actually turn out better than i planned for yippeee....
okee that's all for now...... i'm gonna work on the scarf.....
