Well, I finally lost that extra 12-15 pounds I gained just pre/post surgery, so now I'm back down to where I've been for forever it seems. Will 2006 be the year I loose those extra 80 pounds I've been packing around? (Note: I have not been on a diet, I just started moving again, once I started healing). Anyway, that all leads up to modeling Klaralund. I love the bell sleeves. Now what do you get when you have six hours in a Jury Assembly Room, a ball of yarn and pair of non-metalic needles? A drop stitch scarf! Yes, folks, I spent last Thursday doing my civic duty and sat in a jury pool. Fortunately, I wasn't called and was free to go at the end of the day. Whew! But I did get some great uninterrupted knitting time and another scarf for the Christmas boutique, so not all was lost. I bought this Singer Knitting Machine for my daughter, but I couldn't help playing with it myself. It basically knits a long stocking stitch tube. With a couple balls of self-striping sock yarn and a 1/2 hour of turning the crank, I came up with this long skinny scarf. My daughter thinks it's pretty cool; so she'll be cranking out some Christmas scarves for her friends.
