Robyn mentionned a new contest held by Lotus Knitter. Thanks Robyn! For that contest we have to show our first FO or talk about the next project in my queue. I think I'll do both.
So this ugly weirdly shaped scarf (aka the itchiest scarf ever) was my first project. All garter stitch baby! Thank God I a)fell in love with the craft despite the bad material and b)got better. My second project was already much better I think :
I even chose a much softer acrylic ;)
The "What's next in your queue" is a tougher question. I'm working on two projects right now but I have a couple more on the needle that I'd like to finish before starting something new. That being said, I'm thinking of making this:
...because I have yarn that I think would work well with this pattern. And I need something like that for my office, where I'm always cold.
I will also cast on new socks when I'm done with Roza's socks, but your guess is as good as mine as to which ones I'll make. I can think of 4 patterns that I'd love to make right now. So we'll see.
Now, another contest. My Secret Pal hostess Shelby tagged her group with this meme:
