Mad packing is almost done, this is such a huge relief for me. I was feeling so stressed for a while, but this next week I should be able to breathe and hopefully enjoy my last week here.
I wanted to show you Lochschal.
This took exactly 2 skeins of Rowan Big Wool. There was not an inch to spare, in fact I didn't have enough to do a proper bindoff and had to fudge it. It doesn't bother me, but it might drive someone else crazy.
I do like this pattern and the lovely soft wide scarf, Big Wool makes. Hopefully, it will get lots of use next year :0)
Another finished project, this one just itty bitty. A little acorn man for my son's recent birthday. I think I enjoyed making him more than Jarv enjoys playing with him! I bought a small kit at Bear Dance Crafts to make him up.
And a work in progress, birthday socks for my husband. I was in a rush so this picture is more armwarmerish, I'll do better next time. These are the Cable Twist Socks by Adrian Bizilia.
I'm using good old Cascade 220 for these. Have to love how quick worsted weight socks work up. I have one finished and am almost half way with the second. I'd really like to have these done by the weekend, so I want to stay focused.
That's all for this rushed post, but next time I will have a sweaterly finished object!! Stay tuned...
