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!

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.

Baby Stuff

Here is a baby sweater and hat I made for a friend's baby. I also made another bib from a pattern in Mason-Dixon Knitting. The sweater pattern is called Poonam and is a baby version of an adult pattern from Berroco. It was fun and easy to knit. The hat pattern is from a LYS.

I knit up this hat on Saturday from a free Berroco pattern. I used the leftover Elsebeth Lavold ClassicAL that I had from the Rebecca striped sweater. I lightly steam blocked the hat to even out the stitches and it was good to go. I've already worn it several times.

I also finally managed to get my fabric cut out for the Machiko plaid wool dress. I think I was hesitant to actually do this because of matching the plaid on the side seams and the back, but it didn't take too terribly long. I'll start sewing tonight!
