Simple Pleasures



Well maybe this isn't really a simple pleasure to most of you, but it is to me.  Over the weekend I was thinking about my two projects left on the needles and how both of them are not for me.  I also know that I have at least three more knitting gifts to make before Christmas if I feel up to it.  So what do I do?  I dream of something for me!  I wanted a super easy cowl that is in worsted weight which would knit up quickly in case I do get motivated to knit for others.  Ahem.

The yarn is Ultra Alpaca by Berroco that I picked up in Pittsburgh around two years ago.  I was going to make flip mittens out of it but I changed my mind.  The pattern that I am following loosely is the Purl Ridge scarf by Stephen West.  My ravelry page is here.

  2. I am glad to hear you are doing something for yourself. You know I am drooling over your beautiful yarn! I really think we need to get together one day and go yarn shopping; I could learn a lot from you! ;)
