Happy New Year

I guess this is the newest in knitted scarves, my mother-in-law saw one and asked if I could make her one. The yarn is made by Red Heart and is called Boutique Sashay, under $5 a skein, you only need one and it comes in many colors. The yarn looks like lace and you use the top loops to knit with. It turns out to be this lacy looking scarf.  Directions are inside of the label.

It's kind of putsy to make, looking for the right hole to use, but is very easy otherwise.

I put 6 stitches on my size 10.5 needles.

This is my "Official" New Years Eve pin, I made this several years ago with an old watch set to 12:00 midnight and several stars and a moon around it.

Speaking of Stars tonight at midnight will be a good time to star watch. Sirius in the constellation Canis Major-the legendary Dog Star- should be called the New year's Star. This Star-the brightest one in our sky-celebrates the birth of 2013 and every New Year by reaching it's highest point in the sky around the stroke of midnight. That the case this year and every year.
This information came from the web site, click on "tonight".
If your interested there is information on how to locate the star on the web site (and a lot of other great sky watching information.

Have a Wonderful New Years Eve. I'll see you soon.
