So Far, So Good

I started the Rebecca sweater last weekend. The cable pattern is interesting enough to hold my attention, but I haven't quite memorized it just yet. I like how the merino yarn feels during knitting too. Snow may be in the forecast again this weekend, so it looks like it will still be sweater wearing season for a while!

Scarf Full of Wedges

Here is the finished wedge scarf, blocked and all. I really love how this turned out. It's pretty long, almost seven feet. I hope it's not too itchy for me to wear!

Up Next

I got my yarn from KnitPicks in the mail yesterday. I'm still working on the wedge scarf, so I probably won't start on the Rebecca sweater until the weekend.

Weekend Scarf

As I wait for my yarn to come in the mail to start work on the Rebecca sweater, I decided to start another scarf. This time, it's the wedge pattern from Berroco. I really love the texture of the pattern and it's interesting enough not to be boring to knit. It's knitting up very quickly. I'm using some Lion Wool that I found at the grocery store.

Vacation Project

Here's another project that I finished for a friend's kid. It's a puppy purse. The pattern was miniaturized from a puppy pillow pattern that I purchased during my middle school home economics days. There were all these different pillow patterns: roller skate, hamburger, surfboard, lightbulb, chicken, etc. They all involved handstitching, felt, and cotton. Did anyone else have them?
