This week I finished the last of my non-Christmas knitting.
A cushy, ribbed, cabled scarf that was admittedly not for me, but a long-time promised project all the same.
I think it’s gorgeous all the same.
The pattern is Cinder by Jared Flood.
The yarn is Knitpicks Wool of the Andes Bulky (which I happen to have purchased a ton of this fall, expect to see it again soon.)
It wasn’t bad, as far as scarf knitting goes. I enjoyed the innovation of ribbed cables, but by about the last foot or so, I was just ready for it to be done. Of course, now that it is finished, I am glad I powered through.
It’s a cuddly, strong scarf with a lot of style. All wins.
I have a small parade of Finished Object to share. I finished them off over the weekend and should probably get myself back to work.
First up, I spun some merino which I hand painted and then navajo-plied. (Not bad for my first try if I do say so myself).
Became Athrun’s open fingered gloves for this year.
Once they were finished, I couldn’t get him to take them off.
Then I made a matching hat.
Which I had to frog three times due to twisted stitches and gauge issues.
It worked out in the end though. I absolutely love the fabric of this hat. I might do nothing but navajo-ply in the future to get this same texture in all of my hand spun. It is luscious.
Also, Athrun wanted a really big pom-pom
Behold! My very first pom-pom.
I also finally finished Brock’s Cobblestone Pullover. The photos kind of speak for themselves.
