Day2: advent calender scarf = issues

day 2

Day one was a breeze day two not so much for me.  I have never placed beads in this manner nor have I done nupps.  The beads not an issue pretty straight forward.  But the nupps are a little nightmarish to me I have frogged that section at least 3 times but not more than 5.

Day 1: advent calender scarf

lace and thread
This was an advent calender scarf knit along in December of 2010. This is a free pattern if any one wants to do it.  I decide I would save it till I could knit better than I could then.  To do this project I think I am at the point where I can attempt this and get a good result I am hoping I will learn lots and lots from this as one of my main goals in learning to knit was to make socks and to make lace both I am still working on.

Levi and lace


I have 3 jean jackets I have had almost all of them since I was 14 years old.  That is a while for a jacket I have almost had them twice as long as I have not (OK not trying to give my age away all the way).  So they have all started to get let say worn out which is a major understatement.  I wish I had taken a photo before I cut out the backs yoke piece. So I did the nexted best thing I set the piece back on the hole I had made but you can see the crochet peeking through the hole area.
