Started before Christmas...still a Work in Progress

Buckeye ScarfBuckeye Colors, Scarlet and Gray. This was going to be part of a Christmas gift, but as you can see....it didn't get finished in time. It's basic garter stitch and is striped but at an angle which I like called Chevron. Now that it's sat awhile, I'm not sure I can figure out where I am in the pattern. Errrrrrrrrr, why didn't I leave myself a note. I don't want to frog it since it's striped would have all those separate pieces. tsk tsk...must think on this. This is where my knitting isn't up to my crochet skills. With crochet, I can count figure out where I am and or determine what the stitch is etc. I find that harder with knitting. I keep at it, hoping I'll improve my skills. I do enjoy knitting; but...I can't do it as easily when someone's talking etc.

Did you get all your planned projects done in time for gift giving?

  2. I've got my fingers crossed that you'll figure out where you left off :) Maybe if you tink back just a couple of rows it will jar your memory. Good Luck :)

  3. I did not do any knitting this year for gift giving....I just didn't want the stress. However, I have plans to finish one UFO per month for 2011....ha!

    Joansie, I like your goal for 2011 to finish one UFO per month...

  5. I LOVE the unfinished scarf. Hope you get it finished ... (of course, being a Buckeye Fan, I'm a tad partial to scarlet and gray anything LOL). I've all but given up knitting, too, but still crochet some. Always seem to muff it up in the middle somehow then I'm always somewhat unhappy with my final item.... good luck with it all, though. -- Karen

  8. See, I am just the opposite! I am not a good crocheter and could never keep up with stitches, but give me some knitting kneedles and I can pick it up a year later and figure out where I left off. The tie is cute!
