Sixth Year of Projects - Week 25

Back for another week!!  I am keeping up with my Advent scarf and today completed Day 22 of the 28 days the pattern will be released on.  This is running four days longer than the "usual" Advent season.  Here are two pictures:

The first 14 days worth of knitting

And I decided to cast on something else!  I am going to knit a little scarf for my niece for her birthday (January 5th).  I dyed the yarn myself - my first attempt at a long gradient.  It didn't quite turn out how I hoped, but it is still a good attempt!  I am knitting her Boom!  It is a nice. simple, mindless project and one that should show off the gradient!

I am going to be away over the holidays so I doubt I will post until January.  Happy holidays and Merry Christmas everyone!


  1. Good progress on that awesome advent scarf and great job on the dyeing. Can't wait to see the finished product.

  2. The scarf is so pretty. And the new gradient yarn for the shawl is beautiful. It will be fun to watch it develop.

  3. Ooooh... I love the gradient you died. And I love that you died it yourself!!! What a sweet gift that will be. And I'm still loving that Advent Scarf. What interesting designs in the pattern. I just noticed for the first time that the little designs actually change too - as well as the colors. Somehow I missed that when looking at this before. It's a very attractive project!
