Making Do

While waiting for the yarn to arrive for Aine's stocking this week, I cast-on a few other projects. The main one was a scarf from some stash yarn. After making a couple pairs of baby socks a couple years ago, I still had approximately 350 yards of yarn. It made a nice sized shawl, which is going to be a gift this holiday season. The knitting went really quickly due to my current obsession. I haven't been reading much this week. I have been watching streaming television. I have been watching Friday Night Lights. Although I don't watch television, I have spent my evenings watching the old seasons on my laptop and knitting. I am seriously hooked. It is embarrassing. Hopefully next week, I will be back to the books and have a stocking to show everyone who visits for Ginny's Yarn Along.

  2. Beautiful scarf! That's the 3rd or 4th hearty recommendation I have heard for Friday Night Lights. I will have to put that on the queue.
    Happy Yarn Along!

  3. Love the colors.
    I happened to me, someone just mention Gilmore Girls the other day, like a month ago and I have been watching them on my computer, since I don't have a TV, like crazy, I think it's starting to pass, or I hope so, because, there are 7 seasons, you know.

  8. That is one beautiful stash yarn shawl!
    I am not a television watcher either, but my secret watching is Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Those women live such a different lifestyle than me, it's like watching a train wreck!
