Autumn Branches, Still Growing


Autumn Branches is supposed to be a quick and easy transition project after St. Brigid, before the next big thing. It started with a little ball, only 200 yards, such a small yardage I pondered what to do with it. After working on it daily for a month, there is still quite a bit more yarn left. I rolled up the finished part so I have no idea how long the scarf is now, but I'm going to finish it as planned. I may have to wear the scarf double, triple, or quadruple. Super long scarves are in, right?

Tuesday morning I met up with some knitting friends, who didn't mind me taking pictures of their projects and showing them off here.

It is BEAUTIFUL! Long scarves are popular right now. I have one I wove a bit longer than I wanted and I just make an extra wrap. With that lace pattern, yours will be super gorgeous.

Oh, yes...keep knitting away! I adore long scarves...
they're so Art Deco! :)
...and yours is gorgeous...such a perfect (underused, in my opinion) color, too!!!

I'm super jealous you have such a talented knitting group! I dream of the day I get to leave college and move somewhere with a good knitting group.

That scarf is looking even more beautiful! I think you could definitely pull it off super long. Knit away!

I admire your dedication to the scarf. I would have given up ages ago! Love that hat pattern, off to Bing it.

Wow, you and your knitter friends have some great projects in process! I love your scarf, it's so lacy and beautiful.

I love long scarves... It needs to wrap at least once, maybe twice and reach to at least my thigh. :-)

Whoa, that brown yarn looks a lot like the yarn I'm knitting the daisy stitch hat with. Gotta love a nice brown. Scritches to Rascal from LittleDog and the gang here. Have a wonderful weekend.

Oooh so what is the next big thing?

Chrisknits, the pattern is called Branching out, by Susan Lawrence, and it's a free download on Knitty and Ravelry.

Beth, the next big thing, a sweater of course :-)
