Scrambled is how my mind is right now. I have soooooo much going around in my head. I have finished with what I can on the afghan project. Here is the red and purple. I now have to wait to get more yarn from other people. I hope he sends or brings it to the guild meeting on Sat. So that is at a halt until then and I hope not longer. I know everybody will be so glad to not hear about this project. I know I will.
On to the next scrambled thought. My granddaughter, 9 almost 10, wants an Inkle belt. I have gotten the yarn. She wanted lime green, turquoise, and purple. She did not choose the fuchsia, I did because I think it needed something. I think the fuchsia made it pop. If you happen to look a kids clothes these days those are the colors all mixed together. Now I have been looking for an interesting  pattern. It can be only 1" wide so a very small pattern will be necessary or just a plain weave design.  
Now for the next biggie scrambled project. We have to make scarves for the craft center Christmas exchange.  I have the yarn. I have my pattern.  Now to put it together. I have done that. My problem is not mixing colors. I can do that. I have a problem with mixing textures. This is very small string. What I want to put with it is really a different texture. In my mind I see it together looking great. But you know how our mind will sometimes play tricks on us.I can't tell you what I want to use because it will give it away. I have it laid out like it will be in the warp. Everybody saw the colors that I choose so I don't have a problem with showing this. I may have to ask the expert lady, Carol.

That is all I have for today. Until next time.
Have a good week.

You are soooooo far ahead of me in your projects!!! I am beyond impressed! You stay busy too, with other projects you have to do but you're almost done the afghan project and starting on the scarf. I don't even have my yarn for that one! The belt and scarf will both work out great!

That's going to be a great belt! Those colors are all the rage. I can't wait to see your scarf in December. Those colors are lovely together. I, too, will be glad to see the end of the afghan project.
