DIY Suprise Scarf KAL Done

Hi All !!

I finished my DIY Suprise Scarf KAL this morning and already gave it away. I let my grandson give it to the principal . She loved it and the color was great on her as she is a blond. The yarn color is Basil .

This is the pattern I used .

It worked up really fast when I was paying attention. This is one of those patterns you cannot watch T.V. and knit. I might do this one for my next exchange on the Knit & Chat board.

This Saturday we will be starting our DIY Mitten KAL. Feel free to join us >

Happy Knitting !!

DIY suprise scarf KAL

I am almost done with the scarf for the KAL over at DIY. I am knitting like crazy in order to be done for this Saturday. I would let you know what the pattern is , but its a surprise !! Will post a picture and link to the pattern I am using when I get done.

Things have been crazy at school this week . The last two weeks always are. Yesterday we had field day and the ice cream social.

Today my class went on their field trip. They loved the train ride and the beach. With all the different things going on , they were so tired at the end of the day.

Tomorrow we are having the 5th grade breakfast . My youngest grandson will go to it as he is graduating this year and going to middle school.

Tomorrow night we will to go to the oldest grandsons middle school graduation . Its hard to believe he will go to high school next year. I feel so old !! LOL

Happy Knitting All !!

My House Scarf Pattern

I have posted a link to my Harry Potter pattern. It is a house scarf pattern from the 4th movie.
I made this before the movie came out and did not know there were color bars close together at the ends of the movie scarf.
The last 35 rows were not posted for some reason. So you need to do another 35 rows of black before binding off.
This pattern is copy righted to me and I give you permission to make it for yourself , family and friends. Please DO NOT SELL the pattern or items made from this pattern.
It is posted at The Leaky Cauldron with my permission.
Happy Knitting !!

My Knitting Blog

Well I thought it was about time I started a blog. I have been knitting for about 39 years now. Since I was 10. Hard to believe its been that long. I learned from my grandmother.
I go by Lulu but my real name is Cheryl. I use Lulu because my husband calls me that after my grandmother Luette.
I will post about different items I am knitting and how I like the patterns I am using.
I belong to several knitting forums.

I love knitting socks . On the Knit & Chat site we are doing a sock a month knit-along.

Right now I have a knit-along going for scarves. I called it the Suprise scarf knit-along so everyone could pick out their own pattern. We are only letting each other know what yarn and color we are using. The surprise comes when we post our pictures of our scarf and then tell what pattern we are using. This way we can see what everyone comes up with.
This will also give everyone there another way to reach me when DIY goes down.
We just finished a purse knit-along there .
As soon as I figure out how to post pictures here , I will post some of my knitting.
Happy Knitting All !!
