Cindy's Unraveled Blanket and Scarf

This doesn't do justice. All  I can see is the dog hair .Two different types of cables and bobbles .We need to have it done by Feb. 2.
Yikes!
This too...
I had committed a knitting sin. Tried a few ways to fix it but realized it was WAY too big.
Going to try and ensmallen the throw.
We shall see...

Temperature Blanket

Jessica sent me the link on FB and of course I don't have enough projects started. So!

I will no doubt take some liberties with colors. But why not?

Bad Ass Knitter

I only say that because my mother once casually mentioned to an Aunt that I wasn't very good. Of course I wasn't!
Anywhosie, it's a better title than Things I Have Learned.
And maybe only THING I have learned. And that thing is, cables and fanciness don't look great on variegated yarn. That stuff is fancy enough.
I learned my optimism is more like crazy denial.
I learned my hands will one day take all my hobbies from me. But that I will manage to work until the day before my funeral.
I learned mohair from WISH is not something anyone will like hand working with... it's like hairy sewing thread.
I learned some people don't like dog hair mixed in their knits. I think I always knew this. It just stung a bit more in person.
I am sure there is more. It's been a long year worth of learning.
But I know I love knitting and crocheting and hope I can continue to enjoy it for years to come.
