Knit infinity scarf

Chunky infinity scarf

I have been working on another knitting project, infinity scarf, and i am finally done. I actually used straight needles for the knitting and joined the ends together with a darning needle.
My yarn of choice was a fingering/sock yarn, i used multiple strands of the yarn held together which made the infinity scarf chunky, to keep me warm and toasty when i wear it.

I used different colors of the yarn, which in my opinion is great when putting an outfit together, one gets more selection. For the infinity scarf above i used denim and red and the one below white, red, and navy colors.

Even though the infinity scarf is chunky, it is not heavy around the neck at all, it's super comfy and light. And now on to the next project, i am not sure what it will be we'll keep you posted. Until next time happy knitting!

Canvas tote bag for my knitting

I had been wanting to get a bag for my knitting and since most of the time i am working on more than one item, a medium sized bag was what i really wanted to get.

I then decided to paint the canvas bag to make the colors more vivid, since i am all about bright colors, and added polka dots just for fun. This was my first time painting fabric so i did not know what to expect but it was great, later after i was done i notice i had not aligned the polka dot stencil correctly in some parts, but since its the first time a few boo-boo's are allowed.

I used satin arcylic paints from craftsmart, which gave it a nice finish which i liked, it was not matte or super shiny, for the polka dots i used a stencil from folkart.  I also used some RIT dye for the rope handles which was way easier than painting them.

I love, love my new knitting tote bag, glad i spent sometime painting it (colors used navy, hot pink and white), and i like the final result. Until next time, keep crafting.
