1  Re: Branching Out scarf knit-along in Knitalongs by Annkari on: October 30, 2005 09:16:33 AM
I cast on for this scarf yesterday evening and have spent most of today knitting it. I've done eight pattern repeats so far, and I love this pattern! The yarn I'm using is New Kid by Lana Grossa (50% mohair, 50% microfibre) in a dark green.

Here's a picture of the first few inches:

I love seeing everyone else's versions of this scarf!

I bought new yarn.  Shocked

But, I've already knit it up to make these:

Plus, I've finished two pairs of children's socks and a felted bag since I last posted here, bringing my yarn total down to 63 balls (from an original 80).

More details and a bigger picture of the scarf can be found on my livejournal page:

Yarn Will Always Be On Sale. Somewhere.

I had to work at a yarn store for over a year and see all the sales we had until I realized this was actually true!

It's still pretty hard for me to refrain from buying more yarn ... I bought one ball of Lana Grossa's Quick on Monday, but it was for a thank you gift and it's already finished. Now I'm back to my old habit of starting several projects without finishing any of them.  Sad

Right now, I'm working on this scarf I started last year:


The yarn is cahmere+ by Lana Grossa. Let's hope I can finish this one in time for winter (2005!).  Wink

Is it too late for another yarnholic to join the support group? This thread is a great idea!

Here's an older picture of my stash:

I counted 85 skeins of yarn (not including lots of leftover skeins with only a few yards left and several half-frogged projects), but I have the nagging feeling that there might be a bag of yarn somewhere in the apartment that I haven't counted.

I, Annkari, have a yarn addiction problem and I want to stop it.

I will not buy any new yarn until my stash is reduced by at least half! (This will be especially hard for me, since I work in my favourite LYS!)

Hopefully I can post pictures of my first stashbusting project soon ...

5  stripey summer sweater in Knitting: Completed Projects by Annkari on: February 14, 2005 05:03:27 AM
Here's a picture of the first sweater I finished this year:

It's made of Opaco, a variegated microfibre yarn by Lana Grossa. With 7mm needles it only took me two weeks to knit it up, that's my fastest sweater project ever!  Smiley[/color]
