...and I'm back...kind of...maybe...

*dusts off the blog*

So, I guess my attempt at keeping up a regular blog isn't going so well...oops.  Well, I suppose I will just have to keep trying.

Oh la la, what have I made since my last post in June?  Lots - and if you are friends with me on Facebook, you would have seen it all because I take pictures of all my projects!  Maybe I'll blog about some of them another time (sooner, rather than later, hopefully!).  But today's topic?  Infinity scarves!

Yes, I have fallen in love with one pattern in particular:

Apparently, the blogger came up wtih the pattern after seeing a scarf at Forever 21.  I changed it slightly by doing a quad stitch instead of a treble stitch and by using an N (9 mm) hook.  The scarves that I have been making are about 5 feet long before I  stitch the ends together  and can wrap around three times.  Last week, in our wonderful -40C weather, I wore mine wrapped three times and it completely saved me!

Here are some pics:

black and purple - a couple that I made for some friends

...and a new one for me.  This one was made with 3 skeins of Vanna's Choice yarn in Taupe Mist.  That Vanna White - who would have thought she would have her own brand of yarn?  Lucky duck.
P.S. This one is my new favourite scarf.

And there you have it folks - my first post in many, many months!  Now hopefully, it won't take quite as long to post again! 

(Thanks to my friend, Quyen, at for making me write a post tonight!)
