FO's

Here's the shawl I made last weekend. It is the Wear-it-as-a-Collar Scarf from the Scarf Style book. It looks nothing like the picture in the book, because I used such a different yarn.



Sorry about the lame picture. I'm home alone, so this will have to do. Major fuzz on my t-shirt is from the wool sweater I took off to take the pic. I used 1 skein of Fiesta Boucle in Burnished Red #2109. This pattern is super easy, but it took a little while because of the boucle. I always say I will never knit with boucle again (because I hate it), but when I saw this shawl on Peggy, I had to try it. Confession, I bought another ball in the Safari color. I must be crazy! I promise next time I will have better pictures.

I also finished my first Rib and Cable sock from IW Fall 2005. It's another Nancy Bush pattern. I'm doing them in Bearfoot, super dark colorway, I can't find the band though.



I wasn't sure I would like this yarn. It has mohair in it and it's not tightly twisted like STR, but I actually love it. It is SO soft! I just have to make the other sock now. I'll start it as soon as I finish the pair I am making for my daughter's friend.

Yea on finishing the scarf collar, it's drop dead gorgeous in that colorway! Have fun with the 'Safari' when you get around to working with it. :)

I second loving Bearfoot yarn! I just can't get over how soft this yarn is. I may never take my socks off once I finish them! ;)
