It’s been a busy knitting week of finishes. I posted earlier this week the Pothos socks I finished, the drop stitch scarf is off the needles and will hopefully get blocked this weekend. And here’s a photo of the Ruffled Scarf. It of course doesn’t look like much hanging on that door knob. 🙂
I’m trying to decide if I want to steam block the ruffled edge a bit – that should relax it so it’s not quite so kinky. But it’s just long enough that it goes around your neck and can be held in place with a fancy pin and a little bit of the ends hanging down. It will be a little spark of color for a plain sweater. I may just leave it all kinky and wild looking.
My mohair/silk “Fluff” scarf is coming along slowly but surely. It’s no real conducive to “bus ride knitting.”
Now that its dark when I go to and from work – the lights in the bus that are on are dull and a weird color and trying to see that skinny yarn can be a bit tricky and I keep catching part of the stitch below so this will probably be a stay at home project.
So, had to find something else to knit on the bus yesterday and pulled another lonely sock out of the sock basket. I had just cast on and knit a row or two of the second sock when it got put in away. So a little more progress has been made on these Basket Weave Rib socks – which gives them a little texture. The foot on these looks really wide but that’s just because I stopped the pattern stitch and didn’t continue it down the top of the foot – but then again, they are sort of wide cause I have a wide foot.
And I did indeed find another scarf I had started – Just Enough Ruffle – so I’m hoping to get that one finished soon since I really love the color of the yarn its in. So time to go get snuggled in for the evening to knit. I was surprised to walk out to snow this morning – most of which went away during the day despite the really cold wind. But temps are supposed to drop so don’t think I’ll stick my head out the door this weekend at all!
