Gloves and a Scarf



As you can see, I finished a few projects and I am thrilled to have them completed and out of my knitting bag.  The gloves are tucked away for when the fall cool weather arrives-just think I have something new to wear!



This scarf was truly a labor of love.  The knitting was a bit fiddly because of the sleek yarn.  The entire time I was knitting, I was thinking and worrying about whether I would have enough yarn.  Oh my, what a waste of time.  Once again, the magic of blocking cured all of the worries!!  This knit blocked out beautifully and you know, I have one other skein in a light gray and might subject myself to more knitting torture to have another scarf :)

  3. I love the gloves, but the scarf is just drop dead gorgeous Karen!

    Honey suckle is a vine, very invasive and I usually pull it up if its' in the yard since it takes over everything.

  8. the scarf is lovely! I usually don't care what i'm working on as long as i like the process…but once in a while….the project just has to be made again, in spite of it not being a favorite thing to knit. I really love this scarf….you'll wear it a TON!!! (and don't forgot where those gloves get stashed….they'll be a great surprise for winter!)

  19. You know how I feel about the gloves and the same goes for the scarf -- it looks like a dream to wear, soft as a cloud. And the colorway is delicious. You are such a prolific knitter and produce beautiful pieces. I always feel inspired when I visit your blog.
