Two Nice Finished Objects
Since I last posted, I’ve been pretty busy finishing a bunch of small projects. I made Just Enough Ruffles as part of the Ravelympics, and I won a medal in the Scarf Super-G event by finishing this lovely project within the time frame of the Olympics. I couldn’t be happier with the soft, ruffly Malabrigo scarf I’ve completed. I would definitely make this pattern again!
I went on to make the Taos Chunky Vest–a project for which I bought yarn (Tahki Taos) a year and a half ago at Stitches East! I thought I might run out of yarn, but I made it. The vest is blocking now, and I am attempting to make it a bit longer and a bit wider, which I think will be no problem since the yarn is almost all wool. It knit up very quickly, the yarn is beautiful, and I am hoping to get in a few wearings before the warmer spring weather arrives.
I will now go back to my series of fingerless mitts (just delivered my fourth pair to one of my daughter’s friends yesterday), and the first of my husband’s socks, before moving on to the other Stitches 2008 yarn in my stash: Brooks Farm Mas-Acero. Had slated this for a shawl, but now I’m thinking a cardigan–either February Lady Sweater or Amelia…to be continued.
