Well here it is, my first blog. I actually have been thinking of doing one for a while, and got more motivated once I saw so many great ones out there.
I have finally given in to the Curly Whirly scarf craze. I decided to make one for my daughter, which is good since it came out quite short. Most of the patterns said to cast on 60 stitches, I started with 80. Next time I would cast on quite a bit more. Anyway, she loves it, though wouldn't let me take a photo of her in it.
I used the new Louisa Harding Kashmir Aran for the first bit, then Wendy Frizzante for the last 4 rows. It adds nice texture to the scarf. Here is the close up.
Another great project that was quick, and made a great birthday gift for a friend is this flower from the new Louisa Harding accessories collection book. I didn't use her yarns though. I mixed some Koigu KPPM and a Yaeger merino from my stash, then used Lion Brand Incredible on the last row. I think it came out great. I have to make another one for myself.
Now its back to work on my Twisted Float Shrug from the Fall Vogue Knitting. I have 1.5 sleeves to go then finished!
