My new mantra: Knit it all...

On the way home from Rhinebeck, I decided I needed a challenge. I needed to take the blog up a notch in the knitting niche. I decided that I am going to KNIT IT ALL. By knit it all, I mean, every last skein I bought at Rhinebeck. I challenge myself to knit all of the yarn...I can't even guestimate the yardage...before Rhinebeck next year (which by the way is October 20th and 21st next year--mark your calendars!).

To start this week off, I have knitted TWO (2) projects with Rhinebeck yarn.
Project One: Fishknit Scarf from Morehouse Merino
Yarn: 1 Skein Morehouse Merino Bulky: variegated Denim Blues
Needle: Size 13
Number of hours to complete project: 4

This is the scarf after knitting: it's only 29 inches long!

But here comes the magic: you maximize the length by dropping stitches before binding off...

Voila! The finshed scarf!!

Model/Muse Molly Models (how's that for alliteration?)

The scarf was gifted to super beagle sitter and fabu social work student Erin. Thanks for everything Erin!!!

If you can't knit it all, you can send me some of that STR. ;-)
