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.


  1. What a pretty color. I know how it is to want to knit for self.

  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! ;)

  3. Gorgeous! Reminds me of wine (mmmmmm). So happy you'll be knitting some for yourself this happy knitting season.

  4. I love the colour of this wool, I am using something similar to knit a snood :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  5. I got some Ultra Alpaca in a *gorgeous* blue color for my birthday ... no idea what I'm going to make with it. It has to be something really special! :)

  6. Lovely! I've been eyeing that pattern (ahem, and a whole lot of other cowl patterns lately).

  7. Divine! It should be included in your lovely color post a few days ago. The color on my screen is just the same as those gorgeous leaves you photographed.

  8. aww everything S. West comes out amazing...!!! I have Christmas cowls to knit

  9. oh good for you karen, something wonderful just for you. and it definitely is a lovely simple pleasure.
