Infinity Scarf

That's right, I've hopped on the infinity scarf bandwagon.  The wind was so cold a few weeks ago, I couldn't help but think it was a fun, fast project.  Now the weather is suddenly............not as cold (I really don't want to jinx it) but at least I know I'll be ready in a few weeks time.

I used tutorials from all over blogland, and finally cut it about 60" by 12".  The blog that inspired me however, is Vixen Made.  I used a piece of fabric I had that was long enough, and while I'm not crazy about the colour/pattern, I didn't taken it off for several days after I made it.  So comfortable.  So warm.  Who would have thought?

In addition to my tiny bit of sewing, I've also done a tiny bit of cross stitch.  To be fair, cross stitch was the very first craft I developed a passion for.  It was too limited for my tastes however, I love to make things I can use daily.  Hence my passion for knitting.  However, I digress.  Here is the little card I made.

I did have one knitting project finished this week, a present I made for Christmas.  It is for my Dad, and since he doesn't read my blog (much) I'm hoping to get it posted next Friday. 

For everyone that offered sock knitting help---THANK YOU so very much.  I've cast on my first one, using magic loop.  I ended up looking at all the patterns everyone recommended, until my eyes went blurry.  I also purchased Getting Started Knitting Socks by Ann Bud with a gift voucher I had.  So I feel pretty prepared.  I agonized over the first 1/2" however, thinking it looked like rubbish.  Then it started to a sock!  Now I'm super excited.  I'll post my progress next Wednesday.  You guys are the very best, thank you!

Here's where I'm hopping
