Snowy Sunday

This scarf wasn't on my YOP list (see tab above) , however...it might be the replacement scarf for Liberty Lace. I just haven't been able to my way clear to restart that. It's been frogged and is now on the back burner. This scarf is gray, though looks a bit blueish in the picture. Nothing fancy; but I'm really enjoying it, both in appearance and because it's so straight forward. Nothing but good old garter stitch, with the shading in the yarn, I don't believe you need anything else. This is being knit on size 10 needles with Marble Chunky yarn. The yarn has a wonderful feel, is 100% acrylic and therefore washable. It doesn't feel like acyrlic, it's light to touch and is a pleasure to knit with. When I started this, I thought it might be mine......since Liberty Lace was a failure...but, it's nice and warm and large enough, might work well for Bridge and Beyond. Jury's out until it's finished where it will end up.
This lovely green lace scarf moves from a WIP to a FO and is for my DD. Made with Cascade Yarns, Lana Bambu (79& wool and 21% Bamboo) on size 9 needles. I LOVE this yarn and plan to gt more. It has some a fabulous feel, a neat texture to it with good body.
Got Brown is coming along nicely! It should be finished soon and will be donated to Bridge and Beyond for Project Welcome Home.

So, rather then redo the list each time for YOP, I'll make the changes above, you can also click the tab to see the whole list.

Plan for the week with regard to the list, start the February cloth for the Cotton Cloth Calendar Challenge, only 2 more to go, February and March.

  9. I agree, with the lovely shading of your yarn you don't need anything more than a simple pattern. And isn't it nice to work on some repetitive garter stitch? Like meditating really!

  11. I love the shading in your grey yarn. Garter stitch is definetly a favourite of mine - it's so warm and squishy! The brown blanket is gorgeous, I love the blue touches.
