Even More Knitting

I finally had enough Silk Garden in my stash from gifts and sales at Little Knits and Webs to do a striped scarf a la Brooklyn Tweed for Hubby and me. Now I'm too embarrassed to go out in public with the matching outfit thing going on. I have been wearing mine only when I go out without him. He gets to wear his all the time and I think he's enjoying it. The previous scarf he was wearing around I made for him when I first learned how to knit and it's way too short. Sort of an Alpaca Cravat. Not a good look.

More Knitting

Socks in TOFUtsies sock yarn. Did two at a time Toe-Up and used the Waterfall Rib Stitch Pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks. Ravelry Link. These Socks ate my soul (sole hee hee). The yarn was no fun at all.. splitty, no memory.. blech. I still haven't started another pair of socks since then. Sigh...the horror.

On the other hand ( I swear I'm not purposefully trying to be all puny) These convertable mittens made from Dream in Color Classy were a joy to knit with. LOVE LOVE LOVE this yarn. it has terrific yardage, beautiful non-pooling colorways, and glorious sproinginess. Colorway is Chinatown Apple Pattern Urban Neccesity. Ravelry Link
