Weekend Wrap Up ~ Goodbye Scarf, Hello Cardigan

Mardi Gras Scarf

This week I finished and sold the last Mardi Gras scarf I will be making this season! I've been working on it for some time and was very pleased that it sold locally before I was even able to put in in the store. It was just in time though, the first Mardi Gras parade happened in town yesterday. She was able to wear it to the first parade of the season.

A lot of my time since that's been finished has been directed toward the custom cardigan. I've added quite some length to it but a project of this size won't be done overnight. I will say I am really enjoying working on it and it's coming along nicely. I really love the sheen the silk gives to the garment. 
I have added a good 6 inches since this picture was taken

After some consideration I've decided that Innov8iveKnits is getting a twitter account! It has been created but I'm not actively tweeting just yet. I'm still working out some things on it and how I want to utilize it. If you would like to get ahead of the game and follow me now you can find me there @Innov8iveKnits and I will certainly follow you back. There's also a link to follow me on the sidebar of my blog by my facebook & pinterest. I'd love to have you!

I also wanted to plug a reminder about the temporary closing of my store in March for my Wedding. The store will be closed between March 8th and the 22nd. If there is something you want to purchase soon you may want to consider doing it before then. You are more than welcome to message me during that time if you like and I will gladly return all of your messages upon my return. We are very excited about the big day and our trip to the Virgin Islands. It will be my first trip out of the United States with my brand new husband. Man that sounds weird... husband :).

On a related note to weddings I had the most awful dream last night that I forgot to bring my wedding dress to the wedding and LOST it!!! How on earth do you lose an entire wedding dress or forget to bring it?? I woke up this morning in a half heart attack state over it lol.

This weekend has been pretty icky and rainy so I've spent most of it on the couch watching my favorite TV shows and knitting away. It has been so relaxing and refreshing to spend a whole day in my pajamas doing EXACTLY what I want to do. No cleaning, no cooking, no day job just straight up knitting and doing what I want. It was fantastic and just the little break I needed.


  1. Congrats on your upcoming wedding! I love that Mardi Gras scarf!

  2. Congratulations on your wedding! How exciting.
    The scarf is really nice, great idea to make mardi gras scarves!
    What an awful dream..funny though hehe how do you lose an entire dress?
    I would love to do that every weekend, curl up on the couch with my crochet and some movies. Too bad my day job is every weekend!
    Looking forward to your future posts :)

  3. Thanks! I am so ready for a vacation. :)

    Chels- I live in Mobile, Alabama and Mardi Gras is pretty big here and when I saw that yarn I absolutely had to have it! Luckily my day job is a 9-5 weekday kind of thing so I get to work on my store on the weekends. Sometimes I'm so tired from working all day, knitting most of the afternoon and planning a wedding during the week I just cant force myself out of a set of PJ's on the weekends! There's nothing more relaxing to me sometimes than staying in all day with a pair of needles. Thanks for following!

  4. I am so happy you are getting a break! You make me want to start knitting.

  5. lol Jouna, I'd teach you if you were close! Break's over now, back to the daily grind today.

  6. That scarf is simply gorgeous! I love it!

  7. Thanks Allison & Ginny. I think I will make it again but in a new color :) any suggestions?
