Pattern: Irish Hiking Scarf
Yarn: Philosopher's Wool (2 hanks)
Needles: Size 7
Here is the Irish Hiking Scarf. While I got tons of practice making cables, I have to say, I really don't like making scarves. They just take too long and are too boring. I thought the cables in this scarf would make it more interesting, but they didn't.
Yarn: Lamb's Pride (about half of the silver and 1/4 of the red)
Needles: size 9 16' circs
I changed up pattern from Hello Yarn to make the hat in a worsted version for my DD's boyfriend. Worsted is just so much faster, and I had this in my stash. Sly loved the hat so much that I have to make another for him.
Pattern: something I am going to call the last minuet gift scarf
Yarn: Misti Alpaca chunky (Every bit of one skein)
Needles: size 13
Okay, he is a great last second gift (you can make this in less than 5 hours). The trick with this one is to use a VERY nice yarn. This scarf is all about the quality of the yarn and the knitting. I'll post the pattern latter, but it is a broken rib stitch.
Latter this week you will get to see all those Sweet Mary Janes I have been knitting. Seriously, I think I have about 6 pairs in various stages of done, and many more on the way.
