Cast On: Annapurna Scarf

It’s the day after Christmas and I’m blogging from an over crowded mini van on its way back to post-christmas reality. I’m finally casting on my Cornbread and Honey advent minis project. Jellybean is watching a movie and PB is snoozing (for now) so here goes nothing! Come along with me and let’s see what I can accomplish today.

I’ve already seen all 12 minis but here is the first one! It’s a gorgeous tonal purplish pink. I put on some knitting podcasts with my headphones and hand wound my yarn. I’m casting on Annapurna by Aspenknits. This pattern is specifically designed for 12 or 24 advent type mini skeins.

I’m back! The three hour car ride is complete and the kiddos are asleep in bed after a terrible sugar crash. I managed to knit half? of the first color section. It’s a pretty wide scarf so between the purling and number of stitches this is taking me a bit to make progress.

For now, I’m off to bed. It’s back to reality tomorrow with work and daycare. This momma is happy and tired. I hope everyone else is re-entering from Christmas safely and slowly!

Happy Knitting!!

  1. Nice way to take advantage of some car ride knitting time! I am excited to follow the progress on your project. Color 1 looks pretty and happy.
    Good luck with the transition to post-Christmas (which I’ve always found hard because it’s quickly upended by NYE/NYD).
