Wife, Mummy, Nurse: My Favorite Things Infinity Scarf #YarnAlong

My Favorite Things Infinity Scarf #YarnAlong

Recently I was browsing through Instagram and saw people doodling (or drawing) memorable things that happened in 2015. I sometimes wish I enjoyed drawing, but I don't have the patience to work at it and get better. I want a way to remember some things that happen in 2016, and that is when the idea to knit the 'My Favorite Things' Scarf came about. I have so much stash yarn from projects completed (or not begun), that I REFUSE to buy any yarn for this project. If I use yarn I buy this year, it will be AFTER the original project is complete.

I did a provisional cast on with 72 stitches. January's sections include:
Birthday cake. I turned 32 on January 8!!
Fish. My daughter's Sunday school teacher was out of town on the 3rd and 10th, so I offered to take her class. Let's just say, it made me much more thankful for Miss Jennifer.
Snowflake Eyelets from Up, Down, All-Around Stitch-Dictionary. My infinitely scarf will not just be fair isle knitting. I enjoy knitting lace and cables and decided to throw it in my scarf ever so often. I knit the snowflake eyelets because of the blizzard we had on January 22-23.



Have you knit the 'My Favorite Things' Infinitely Scarf? If not, it's an EXCELLENT stash buster! What's on your needles?
