I am dreaming of cool Fall weather so that I can wear some of the scarves I have woven. This is a Sampler Sock Kit in the colorway, Autumn Leaves, that has been sitting in my stash for a while. I bought it from Knitabulous Yarn. It came packaged in cupcake liners. Oh so cute!
There are a total of 5 colors. I used each color once for the warp stripes. Then I used each color for the weft in sections. I started with orange and then green, red, yellow and ended with blue. (10 dent heddle, 70 ends, 2.5 yard warp)I wove it looser than my previous scarves to achieve more drape and to see how much the yarn will bloom after washing. The results after washing? A light and airy scarf.
We ended August with a birthday celebration. Melody's pal, Veronica, turned 4 years old! I brought my camera and even remembered to charge up the battery. But I forgot my memory card! Sigh! Here are the pics taken with my Blackberry Phone.The birthday girl, Veronica! The birthday party was held at The Messy Artist in New Jersey. It was a great party. All the kids had so much fun and the staff was very nice. One of the best parts was that the kids can get as messy as they want, but leave the party all cleaned up and the mess behind.Melody painted a Teddy Bear that she got to bring home.There was a painting table set up with lots of paint. Melody made a beeline for that table right away.See the stuff that they are scooping? It's Oatmeal! What a great idea.Pizza was served for the kids and adults. The kiddies got juice boxes and the adults had wine.And for dessert, pink sparkly cupcakes! Thank you for inviting us to a awesome party, Jen & Jason.
