One Skein Bubblegum Scarf

I've been gone again recently.  I flew out to help my in-laws pack up all their treasures in order to move in with my brother and sister-in-law.  They have a lot of treasures.  I could've taken pictures of the beautiful antiques that she has, but I was on a mission.  Had a job to get done.  Well, at least try and make a dent.  I think it's going to take awhile.  I didn't take the time to blog or even read blogs!  I know!  Crazy!

There was no sightseeing or fun shopping adventures. Not that I didn't shop. Did you know that Home Depot has pretty cheap boxes? Much cheaper than U-Haul and not to mention the exorbitant amounts that Budget charges for boxes. Geez! Highway robbery. If I lived closer I could've come up with free boxes.  But, I didn't have time for that.  No monkey business, just packing, and lots of it.
But, you see here that I did accomplish something creative on the plane rides. I knew my current projects wouldn't pass muster. Little tiny metal knitting needles are just asking for problems. So, I did some last minute Ravelry searches. I found a scarf that would use up the one and only skein I had of Zanziba. The pattern is here. Haley's turned totally different than mine. It made a light and airy scarf with pretty bubble gum colors. I used size 19 needles that I had, thank you very much. A heavy wool scarf is just not usable in my neck of the woods, or should I say city. The stitch is called the Purse Stitch. It did the trick.

  5. Heping elderly family members trasition to a different home is one of the most challenging things I've had to do. How to accomplish it and still leave them with the things they treasure? Your scarf is so much fun--love the open knit and frothy colors.
