|Progress Picture for 4/4/2012|
I am really pleased with what I got accomplished this week but with Easter coming up and finals (test and paper) for my grad class coming up. I think my crafting will have to go on hiatus, but we shall see.

Well, this guy went into time out and when I picked it back up this week everything just seemed to click and I was able to see the pattern emerge from the yarn. So happy that I stuck with it, as this is going to be a beautiful scarf.
|About another inch or so to go until the heel flap.|
The Gryffindor scarf really is my go to project right now, particularly when watching the Penguins or any TV program. The Pens won last night against the Boston Bruins, but I had to switch over to another program because I felt like I was jinxing the game. I did get about 9 rows done on the scarf.
I am going to the next game on Thursday. It's against the Rangers and I am so excited. Not only am I going to the game, but I am volunteering through work to sell raffle tickets for the Flight 93 Memorial before the start of the game and through the first period of play.
You will also notice that I have some stitch markers in the compilation picture. After receiving and purchasing some awesome markers, I thought that I could make some. Really I just love how they hang from your work and are more attractive that the plain old plastic ones.
|Aren't the Bumblebees and Lady Bugs adorable?|
I still have some finishing work left to do on many of them but the above is just a sampling of what I was able to create. Really I know they look complicated but after about 15 minutes of work I end up with a handful of these colorful gems.
I do want to plug my own handy-work a bit, my good friend Samie at Not Your Gram's Afghan is doing a giveaway for her blog-aversary. Not only do you win 2 skeins of King Cole Riot and a pattern for the Spring Ripple Scarf, but you get 5 stitch markers that I made!
