Projects I'm Working on this Week

I've got my knitting needles and my crochet hooks out this week. Mosttimes I've got at least 4 to 5 projects going on at the same time, but not right now! I have 3 projects! LOL! And, I'm going to share the video tutorials for the patterns I'm making.

Crochet Loopy Love Scarf
by Tamara Kelly, Moogly Blog

She has three different versions of this pattern, a cowl, infinity scarf, and a regular scarf. I opted to make the regular scarf and I'm making mine super long. I want to wrap it around me several times and I decided to use a mixture of yarns: Scarfie by Lion Brand and Caron Cakes and the colors are an ombre of neutrals. Scarfie is a wool blend mixture with acrylic and Caron is 100% acrylic so the scarf will be really soft to wear.

The video tutorial she provided is for her loopy love blanket but the stitch is the same for the scarf! If you have trouble viewing the video, click here!

The second item is my fourth needle knit project and I can't be more enthusiastic! I am so enjoying learning to knit. So, this time I'm making a super wide, super big scarf. The pattern is for a cowl and calls for a size US 19 circular needles and I bought a pair to try out but I'm struggling getting the stitches through them so I opted for a straight scarf using my 19 single pointed needles but I'm following the stitch pattern in the video and I think it'll come out just as pretty!

My last project I already mentioned in this post, but this is a big project that hopefully I'll have done by Thanksgiving. I'm calling it my "Checkerboard Blanket". I'm using a light color with a dark color and knitting up squares and sewing them together to make the blanket. I get so cold in the car sometimes when we're out on field trips, so once I finish, I'll have this cozy, cushy blanket to snuggle up with!

I'll be sure to post pics of my items once I get them done or near the end, can't wait to show you!

Bonus Video Project
I was happy with my three projects until I saw this video on YT the other day and I watched it several times and then the next thing I was doing was looking for appropriate yarn since I don't have Lion Brand Wool Ease in the house as suggested in the pattern, but I found a good ball of Lion Brand's Scarfie which is perfect for this kind of item. It has a lovely ombre of colors which makes it fun to work with. So, here's project #4!
