I recently got a profile on Ravelry. I LOVE it!! So, I have been uploading most of my knits and finding other people's projects I like for inspiration.
I found two scarves I really liked and knit non stop to finish both within three days. I sprained my ankle badly a week ago so there's not much else I can do. (an excellent excuse for knitting)
One of the projects I found was the purl ridge moebius scarf by Cat Bordhi
Size 8 US circulars
Araucania Atacama 100% Alpaca
I have the book Knitting With Balls which I really like and after finding projects from other people's Not So Rugged Scarf I took a second look at that pattern and really liked the idea. I guess it's the simplicity of these scarves that are pleasing and calling me to knit. I won't even get to wear them until Fall arrives. Oh well. It's never too warm to knit.
I chose Kidsilk Haze and Rowan Yorkshire Tweed 4-ply both in brown instead of the recommended yarns.
size 8 circulars
I cast on 272 sts and started knitting away making up when I switched yarns.
I will probably do this project again for a friend or two. I love knitting stockinette or garter st lengthwise.
I made these gauntlets a couple weeks ago for Christopher as well.
Noro Silk Garden
sz 8 needle
I just started knitting a rectangle because I liked the yarn and then they turned into arm warmers. I had 42 sts wide going so I continued until they went up to the elbow, then sewed them together and left a thumb opening. eeeeasy
That's all for now.
