Knitting Finish 1 of 2014

20140108_11  My first finish of 2014 is my Loopy’s Challenge – Mixin it Up.  The challenge – at least 300 years in a project and there were several options – mixing yarn, mixing two different patterns, or mixing materials – I chose the mixing materials and mixed beads and yarn.

So Racing Raindrops is finished – completed the knitting last night and a quick steam block tonight.   I definitely would have liked this longer but this is the second scarf I’ve made from this designer that is much shorter than their photos look – go figure. 🙂  It’s pretty and will be a nice little piece to add a bit of color.  If you’ve never tried beading (as I hadn’t) this would be a great project to try with.
