So here I was -- happily crocheting a scarf, using sock yarn that I had purchased in Kansas City probably 2 years ago. The yarn had been wound for a looong time. I get about 1/4th done, and the yarn starts coming out from all sides, all twisted and knotted!! I cut it off and tried to get it undone, but the yarn is so mad at me, I think, it refuses to cooperate! So, I threw it in the trash! OK, well, I took it out to take this picture and decided that I'll hold onto if for awhile -- maybe after I calm down, I can coax it into submission! This was to be my project to take on a little trip I'm going on tomorrow with my daughter. So, now I had to wind another hank of yarn (which was giving me all kinds of fits during the wind) and now I'm going to start another scarf. I'm thinking I'm having some kind of Bad Yarn Karma!

What a wonderful Valentine's Day gift! I won this yarn from Christine at Treasure Goddess - last month on her blog! It's her Fruity Toes Sock Yarn in the colorway "Pinky Tuscadero"! How fun! I think I'm going to make a lacy scarf with it.
I haven't been knitting very much lately -- too much other stuff (baby quilt - getting paintings ready for a show) - but I'm starting to get in the mood again! I've still got a lot of projects on needles that have to get finished!

I can't believe that it's taken me the whole month of January to get this little thing done! But, I would work on it and then put it up for awhile, then do some more - and stop for awhile. I'm really not in the mood to quilt, but I promised my stepdaughter that I would do this for her to give to a friend.
Cathy wasn't able to help me pick out the fabric, so I was a little concerned that maybe the pink and brown wouldn't be babyish enough. But, she told me that the mother-to-be had received several pink and brown things at the shower -- even her diaper bag is pink/brown! So now I think she just might like this quilt!
Now, I just have to make the label and send it off! Maybe I can get back to some knitting now!
