I’ve been busy writing so much tech stuff these days, I haven’t had time to post about some of the other craft projects I’ve been working on in my spare time. I haven’t been ignoring it, I promise!
First, I spent most of my vacation working on a pinwheel blanket made from *all* of my scrap yarn. It’s hideously ugly, but I’ll post more about that later.
But I’ve temporarily put the blanked on hold so I could quickly knit up two scarves as thank you gifts for some dear friends in Maine. A few days ago, I finished the first one, which looks like this:
It’s knitted with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky, and the color is Brick (017). I got the pattern free online from the always wonderful knitty.com. The original pattern was meant to be thinner and more lace-like, but I think it translated pretty well to the thicker yarn. Here’s a closeup:
The second scarf which I’m still whipping through is a simpler, more straightforward one that’s done in a ribbed moss stitch.
That’s it for now, but stay tuned to see pics of the infamous pinwheel scrap blanket.
