There's been a whole lot of craziness here but, believe it or not, there was also some knitting! I finished this scarf last night and I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. Of course the weather is too warm for it now but I'm sure I'll get to use it lots in the Fall and Winter. Here are the specs:
Pattern: 'Misty Garden' by Jo Sharp as found in "Scarf Style"
Yarn: Artyarns 'Regal Silk' in color #148, 2 skeins
Needles: Size 7, Bamboo
I just loved working with this yarn. It's soft and beautiful and the color is just gorgeous. Originally I started the scarf on KnitPicks needles but the needles were way too slippery for this yarn. The bamboo needles seemed to do the trick though. This project was one of 2 projects that I was hoping to finish up in this first round of Project Spectrum. The second project was Boogie's sweater.
This is Boogie's sweater right now. I put off blocking it until the major stuff was done around the house. With all the dust and crap flying around I didn't want it to get messed up. In blocking it I've already found that some of the measurements are off and the sleeves are a bit longer than I'd expected. I think I may have knit a few more rows than necessary. That's cool though. I made it a larger size so that Boogie could wear it later in the year or next Spring...depending on when it fits her best. Next step is seaming and the ruffle.
The Master of the Mystic Arts made an appearance today. I was sure he'd been shoved into a drawer or a box somewhere but clearly his ability to move through dimensions served him well.
Hope y'all enjoy the rest of your weekend!
