These are a few of my favorite things...

I'm super excited about the scarf I'm knitting -- it's called "My Favourite Things" by Jill McGee.  It's more of a "recipe" than a pattern.  The instructions to get you started are a free Ravelry download, so I recommend checking it out.

I am stashbusting for this project, which means it's mostly coming from my leftovers of acrylic from various amigurumis or whatnot.  (All gathered together in what I call my "bag of chaos.")  I'm having tons of fun playing with different color combinations and picking out cool motifs to make the scarf.  I just pick color schemes and motifs that remind me of my favorite things.  Like this one, where I'm knitting the Federation symbol while watching TNG...

I'm also loving the pink cat motif (although I used some extra crappy yarn for that piece and it looks pretty bad.  Really should have frogged it and started over with better yarn, but that ship has sailed, so I'm gonna live with it...)

I'm loving playing with color and getting to use everything I learned in my color theory class on Craftsy [affiliate link].  BTW, I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that I'm enrolled in 108 classes, but happy to report that this color class is absolutely my very favorite!

OK, back to knitting!  Pepper out.
