WIP Chunky Knit Infinity Scarf

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

I love knitting, crocheting and reading, and recently I discovered a blog that has just that!  The blog is called Small Things run by Ginny and you can find her blog HERE.  Ginny has a blog party on Wednesday called Yarn Along where you can share both what you knit/crochet and what book you are reading.  I would like to share with you my knit project and book I'm reading.

This is my work in progress knit infinity scarf.  The yarn I am using is thick and the needles are US size 11 and I casted on 13 stitches.  The yarn is Twinkle Hand Knits Soft Chunky in the color 52 Dusty Pink.  I need to make this scarf long and I have used 1 skein and then added another skein to that.  I want to be able to have the scarf wrapped around the neck two times.
.

This is the book I am currently reading that my mom bought for me at a yard sale for 25 cents.  This book is a love story between two people that come from families that each own florist shops and are enemies and feuding with each other.   I like the book and I am towards the end of reading it.  I am curious to see what happens at the end of the book with both families.  My mom and I also like the fact that the girls name in the book is Julie!

I will also be sharing my work in progress with Tami's Amis Work in Progress Wednesday.  I am new to her blog party and I will be attending other parties this week as well.  Tami's Amis has on Fridays a blog party called Finished Object Friday too. I will be sharing this at My Merry Messy Life & Moogly party - Hookin On Hump Day.

I look forward to finishing this scarf I'm working on and the book.  Maybe some of you who like to knit/crochet will be interested in joining along at these parties I mentioned.

I am on Twitter, Ravelry and Pinterest.  My username is @brklynhousewife.  Please don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin too!  All of my crochet/knit creations and recipes are on my Pinterest Boards, so please have a look there also.  

Thanks everyone and enjoy.

  2. Julie,

    The scarf is very pretty and looks like it will do a great job keeping out the cold, especially wrapped around several times. Has it snowed there yet?

  4. Your chunky scarf will be snuggly warm! I'm also starting an infinity scarf for my daughter. Well, I started it last night, but I'm not happy with how it's working, and will have to rip out the entire thing. Thanks for the link to the WIP party. I already know about Ginny and sometimes get a post done on Wednesday for that, but lately that's just not happening. Enjoy the rest of the week! Wendy x

  5. Hi Julie! I can see your multi talented with yarn, you not only crochet but you knit also. You asked me about the baked potatoes, I just wash them, wrap them in foil and with a fork poke some holes and throw them in the crock pot. If I put them in late morning then they're nice and tender by suppertime. I set the crock pot on high and they're perfect every time.

  8. Hi Julie, I love your pretty scarf - the color is so soft and pretty. I am trying to crochet an infinity scarf right now - so far, so good, but I have a little way to go. I will have to visit your friends this evening with a warm cup of tea and take a peek at your Pinterest, too. Enjoy your day and stay cozy. Hugs xo Karen

  16. Hi Julie :) Thank you for linking up at Link & Share Wednesday :) The yarn looks lovely and soft and your project looks very relaxing! I love to read too - but since I've had the two little ones I never seem to have time to pick up a book - but I do listen to audiobooks now - which is fabulous because I can listen and still crochet at the same time!!
