Bacon and Blogging!

I am pleased to say that, now that we're here in mid-March, that my Christmas knitting have made it to their final owners. The last one to finish, for a couple of reasons, was my Makin' Bacon scarf.

Pattern: Makin' Bacon by Linda Cyr
Yarn: Loops and Threads Impeccable Solids
Needle: 5.0mm

The yarn left something to be desired. I usually avoid knitting with pure acrylics at all costs, but the recipient of this scarf was destined for someone who is quite picky about fibers, leaving my only possibility as pure acrylic. The squeaky yarn combined with really long rows made this scarf last for-freaking-ever. The result is pretty cute, though, and it goes well with the pancake hat I made her a couple years ago.

In other news, I'm getting excited about Knitting and Crochet Blog Week! It starts on the 28th, so hopefully school won't get in the way of getting all my posts out. And now, I must go dive in to the list of over 50 sources for a paper I'm working on. I hope daylight savings hasn't ruined all you guys the way it has me. I had such a hard time getting moving yesterday and I'm still groggy today! In any event, I hope everyone is enjoying as lovely weather as I am. It's above 0C for the first time in a good long while!

Happy Monday!
