Happy Labor Day... and Knitting

I am thoroughly enjoying all of your responses to my last post! I can relate to so many of your reasons and I think that's what I love so much about knitting... the variety! From dishclothes to sweaters or stockinette to lace there is a project to suit just about any of my many moods. I've never stuck with a hobby so long before and I'm certain it's this variety of options, fibers, and techniques that has kept me enthralled. Add in the productivity factor and, well, it's really the perfect craft! I guess my frequent frustration over just *what* to knit, is actually what makes me love it so much.

Anyhoo... I have amazed myself by finishing the Aspen Leaf Scarf. (More photos and details later.)

And, thanks to Maria, have found the perfect pattern for my luscious new Hand Maiden yarn.

Happy Labor Day friends!

Yay! Glad I could help. Mine is finished. I just need to block it. I did FIVE repeats of the last chart. Woolmeise has a ton of yardage. I may just go block it even though it's 1 AM. Have fun knitting!

Wow, you're on a lace roll! You're inspiring me to dig out some yarn I've stashed for shawlettes - yours are so pretty. :o)
