This week I finally finished my pattern. I call it "The Marjorie Scarf Pattern"
I created this pattern because I wanted two things: fist, I wanted to keep the back of my neck warm like with a scarf. Second, I wanted the convenience of take my hat off without misplacing it.
We go see the Tennessee Ice Bears play hockey once or twice a season. I love to go but I hate the walk to the arena. It can be cold, and sometimes wet. So I bundle up for that and when we get inside, we get to our meager little seats. There is just enough room for you so storing your belongings need to be the bare minimum. "The Marjorie Scarf Pattern" otherwise known as hooded scarf is perfect.
I have added the pattern to both my Etsy shop and Cathy Creates.
Next is the Pumpkin Hooded Scarf. I love this one. The color is just perfect for fall, and I love the size. This one is a smaller version of the Purple Hooded Scarf I posted a week or so ago.
Next is stitch markers for knitters. Sometimes a stitch pattern, such as lace for multiple cables can take more of your time than needed. For instance, you are working a complicated lace pattern and the count didn't come out right at the end, you have to rip back, count and hope you find the mistake. Stitch markers make it a little easier because if your count is off you know which section the mistake occurred, which might just be the last section so you don't have to rip out the row.
This week I have four sets of stitch markers. I posted two on Cathy Creates and two on Etsy.
First on Cathy Creates I have a Set of 5 Flower Lampwork Stitch Markers. They are made with some pretty lampwork beads with little flower on them and I have a flower charm for the progress marker.
Second on Cathy Creates I have a Set of 5 Rose Lampwork Stitch Markers. They are also made with some pretty lampwork beads but these are darker and have a rose on them. The charm for the progress marker is a butterfly.
First on Etsy I have a Set of 7 Burgundy Glass Bead Stitch Markers. They are made with burgundy glass beads. This set also includes a progress marker, the beads are larger for this one and a beginning of row marker, the beads are different colors.
Second on Etsy I have a Set of 7 Acrylic Bead Stitch Markers. They are made with acrylic bicone beads. This set includes a progress marker, the beads are larger for this one and a beginning of row marker, the beads are different colors and the bicone is larger.
Works in Progress:
I finished two squares on the tablecloth I showed you a couple of weeks ago. Yay, me.
Last week I showed you a jogging suit I had cut apart. After thinking a little more about what I want I have decided to sew some of it back together and cut other parts. I hope to have something done on that next week. So for now, this is still a working in progress.
