Skinny Black Knitted Fashion Scarf

I love knitting long skinny scarves. I found this one I'd already finished so I listed it on Etsy. I have some big bags of projects I just dragged out to the patio to sort. In one there are 2 tychus hats that need to be finished, and a pumpkin hat and a gob of other things. So I better get back out there and make some progress before it gets dark.

Ponchini or Capelet in Covered Bridge Red

Yesterday I started making a ponchini/capelet thing out of Homespun yarn that I got off the free table at the All Things String knitting event at El Dorado Park. I knitted like a mad woman until 2 AM and finally had to call it a night. I think I can finish it in two more rows, only now I'm thinking a black border would look nice and I don't know where any black yarn is off the top of my head. So do I finish it right away, thus assuring it gets done and doesn't fall into the project black hole, or do I shelve it until I can find some black yarn in this mess I call home?

Rocking Horse Knitted Panel

Right now I'm knitting a rectangular panel with a rocking horse on it. I'm not sure what it's going to be but I was in the mood to knit something from a chart. In fact last night I knitted so much my hands were too sore to knit today at all, so I made earrings instead.
The important thing is that I made something, right? Maybe I can knit again tomorrow. I wish it wasn't midnight. I still have lots of things I want to do.

Knitting outdoors

I knitted this a while back and it got stuck in a bin.

Jumbo circular needles

Shrug on the jumbo needles.

I sure hope I have enough yarn.

During breaks on another project I got some knitting done today. This shrug is about half finished. I just hope the yarn doesn't run out before it's wide enough to go from wrist to wrist. Sometimes I wish I lived in a yarn store.

I used to teach knitting at Michael's. I would love to have some knitting students again.

Knitting Event

On June 19, 2010 at El Dorado Park there is an event that combines World Juggling Day and Knit in Public Day. It's at an archery range. So I'm going to take my hoops, juggling equipment, archery gear and knitting supplies. There is a small fee to drive into the park. I think it's $7.00. Bring something to share at the potluck as there are no food booths. We are on our own. If you do not live near Long Beach, CA you can check the IJA website for other World Juggling Day events near you.
