So here I am scarf knitting on Friday the 13th
This is the second month in a row that the 13th day of the month lands on a Friday. Really, it hasn’t impacted me since I was about a freshman in high school; so all you knitters out there who fear this day or the number thirteen, take heart! It’s nothing but a silly superstition.
Thirteen is a baker’s dozen, in case you didn’t know. And the United States began with just 13 colonies, and no one seemed to think that would turn out bad. (It hasn’t.) And remember Apollo 13, (“Houston, we have a problem”); they definitely weren’t unlucky!
So, just to tempt fate 🙂 or to be a little eccentric, start knitting something new today, Friday the 13th! Mark it on your calendar and when you’re finished, take note of how it went. No different from any other knitting project you’ve done, I’ll bet! In fact, this one may have flown along.
I’m right in the middle of my Peacock Jewel Scarf which I mentioned a few weeks back in this post. In fact, I’m loving this scarf so much I may knit another one in pure turquoise, it’s such a pretty color! (My favorite.)

As well as knitting my scarves today, I’m also looking for a new scarf pattern for a new lace scarf. Lace knitting is very easy to do, as long as you don’t use an overly complicated pattern. I prefer the written instructions over charts. They are just easier to follow.
Besides searching online for “knitting lace scarf patterns”, I also like to stroll over to places like Pinterest or Craftsy for ideas. AND, I always refer back to all of my knitting books which are chock-full of knitting patterns. So, there’s something for everyone. Hurray!
I love getting inspiration from books such as Victorian Lace Today by Jane Sowerby and Knockout Knits by Laura Nelkin. Just turning the pages, you will be get so many ideas, jot them down before you forget!
Scarf Knitting on Friday the 13th
can be one of the “fun-nest” things you do all year!
As always, take your knitting to heart!
