This week has been rather heavy but I do have some goodies to share. I started working for the school maintenance team at the Craft Center to earn some extra bucks in my spare time and when ever I am notvacuuming I get to paint mini murals for different things. Here is a shot of the first one I did.

Other than that I started knitting a rasta hat for my friend Bethany for a trade of one of her scoodies (a hood and scarf combination) that she sews together. I am really excited about the scoodie and also about knitting my first rasta hat. Its a really easy pattern from the looks of it. Talking about projects for other people I have a picture of Andy wearing the scarf I made him. He loves it. Its charcoal grey with Navy Blue stripes that I knit at irregular intervales to give it interest then when it was finished I crocheted a navy border that goes up and down the scarf but
not across the bottom. I think it turned out pretty nice.

Andy's Irregular Stripe Scarf
Yarn: 1 skein each of Lion Brand Yarn Wool Ease in Navy Blue and Charcoal Grey
Pattern: CO 15 Stitches on Size 13 Needle
K1, P1 rib the whole thing, I just knit a stripe til I felt like switching so some are long stripes and others are very short.
Weave in ends
Crochet a row length wise on either side in the one of your stripe colors. I used Navy.
Wallah fin!

Congrats on new part time job! Looks cool! The Andy Scarf is such a nice male scarf. I guess that's what Peter would wear too ;)
