Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

WIP Wednesday

... and one totally finished Baby Surprise Jacket.

Just in case you thought I never "totally" finish anything besides socks. (haha)
I sewed the shoulder seams and added the cute frog buttons.

I have been working on the Sockdown! Mar socks, Blackrose. I am on the downward slope... finishing up the gusset and heading towards the foot. I think I'll finish in time to qualify for a prize! And if I get a few more projects done, I'll join in for Sockdown! May (cables/twisted stitches or the Mystery sock). I luv cables!!

I am about halfway through the Styx Old Shale Scarf. I still haven't decided if I want to continue or if I should place it on a holder and start the other side and then join them together. I do like to see the pattern traveling the same way on both sides. But it is so nice just to be able to knit this scarf and not worry if I left enough yarn for the other side. Just keep going until I run out of yarn.

Here is a close-up of the pattern:

The colors are much deeper than the picture shows (it must be the flash).

I have also been working on designing a small project. The designing and surfing the internet (read Ravelry) must be why the two other WIPs have not been worked on lately. So there is no new updated pictures of them.

Guess I'll work on a sock while I "ponder" the scarf's fate.

The BSJ is adorable! Where did you get those cute frog buttons?

I got the buttons from a friend. She is a quilter and a knitter and has lots of buttons.

Cute froggie buttons!

Yay, you're almost done with those socks, it will only get easier now.

Oooh, cables for Sockdown May. Tempted, though not sure I can knit a pair in one month.

Hey Susan, you busy girl. Love the sweater, the socks & the scarf! I'm so proud of my basic socks but can't wait to try some fancy ones like yours.
