Knitting Progress

Lots of knitting was done this past month….

court_jester_inspired_scarf In addition to the Flounce scarf I made for my friend Cathy, I also finished a couple of other fashion scarves using the mesh yarn.  The bright green one is extra long and I only cast on 6 stitches for that one.   For the second one (blues and purple), I did the traditional 8 stitches, so it’s a bit fuller and shorter.   I love them both for different reasons.  Both of these scarves used the yarn, “Chrysalis” from Yarn Bee.

I also knit up a very light weight scarf using mohair “Ty-Dy Superkid” from Knit One Crochet Too  - a luscious yarn in purples and reds.  I just did the basic feather and fan pattern with about 6 rows on each end for a selvedge and 3 stitches on either side for the border.  It’s so light weight, you don’t even notice you’re wearing it!
