Multidirectional Scarf

Classic Elite Fame

The yarn that you see on the left-hand side of my scarf is what was left after I cast off the last stitch. It was a little tense there for a moment. I wasn’t sure I was going to have enough yarn so I did not attempt the optional ending posted with the pattern.

My So Called Scarf in Magnolia colorway. Ready to ship to my Secret Scarf Exchange recipient.

The children chillin’ on the newly slipcovered couch. (Trouble on the left and Fuzzy on the right) I think they like each other now. 🙂


Late is better than never… September 1, 2005

For a long time my dream has been to get my degree. I went straight from High School to College and then got slightly derailed by a really freaky religious group that I stayed in for a little over six years. So…back to the real world with only a year of college under my belt. Finally time to start making my dreams reality.

Now, I have some health problems that I may or may not have mentioned here before. One of my issues, in particular, has made it difficult for me to go to school full-time in the past. Being out of above-mentioned religious group (affectionately known as “the crazy cult”) has lowered my stress level immensely. I’m an ambitious kind of girl (have you seen my list of things to knit lately?) so I decided to try going to school full-time, albeit online. In February of this year I graduated with my Associates Degree in Business Administration. This spring I return to a brick and mortar school to continue my education and complete my Bachelors in English/Secondary Ed. So…while this is all fresh in my mind…a graduation picture (yes, I had one. It was a virtual graduation, all done through the internet) 🙂
