Lightning Bolt Scarf Completed

I just finished it. The double bolt cloud has a zipper pocket on the back for things like an id or some cash moneys. YOu know you know. I also started a tumblr. I couldn't resist. The layouts are so... slick and pretty. I am going to be doing both. Here is the link for my tumblr so if anyone wants to follow that as well you can. Yay! friends.

By the power of thor

My friend Sasha has commissioned me for a lightening bolt scarf. I knit the scarf itself in a day which made me happy. I used two skeins of geisha. Which is always heavenly to work with. Now I am just working on getting the lightening clouds made and attached. The best part is that the weather has totally been rainy and full of thunder and lightning while I've been working on the clouds. Thor must approve. Sweet!

The knitting was started on Aug. 16 finished on aug. 17th. The cloud and lightining are made of felt and stuffed. I am putting another cloud on the other end of the scarf which will have a pocket inside. Yay! excitement.

I haven't posted in a good minute so a lot has happened. I recently moved from a small town about an hour outside Nashville to Midtown nashville. I am loving pretty much every minute of it despite the quirks of living in a building that is older than public electricity. I am also living with a boyfriend for the first time ever which has been a new adjustment for not only me but my family .
I am still working on finishing school. About the start my last semester which involves the student teaching aspect. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I am sure that I will have tons of silly stories and fun school projects to share soon.

I recently started knitting again. The blue scarf is one I spent the past two days knitting on casually. I plan to add some embellishments in the next few days and then we'll see what happens with it. I have some sewing projects in the works and another scarf that I am starting on request. Lots going on. Now that things have begun to settle a bit and the year isn't throwing curve balls at me every few weeks I think I'll be able to get some good post and pictures up.

Hope everyone is crafting and well.
