On The Needles

It sure didn't take long to become Friday again.  
I am loving the new On The Needles link ups with Judy L at Patchwork Times.
I think it is making me pick up my needles a bit more often.

I am now working on my fall colored Simple Skype socks.
Not a lot of progress because I just started to work on these.

I finished these.
This pattern is called Into The Green.
You can see the design if you enlarge the picture.

One day while blog hopping, I saw a scarf called Drop Stitch Drama
A super fast and easy drop stitch design that uses double yarn and size 13 needles.
So I go to my yarn bin and find a skein Vanna's Choice purple and 
one lonely skein of Moonlight Mohair.
The perfect pairing for a quick project for the scarf wearing daughter. 
This took 3 evenings of a couple hours of tv time.
And reduced the yarn bin just a little.

I need some motivation to start knitting again, so thanks for the link information.

You're going to town on those socks. Love the scarf and how nice was it to use yarn you already had!

Love all your projects!! I'm loving this new plan of Judy's, too. Just what I needed to keep moving.

Love the "simple green" socks knit in BLUE yarn! HAHA! The scarf is very cute on your daughter.
