Recently I made a scarf and a pair of socks. Here they are:
The pattern is from Metropolitan Knits, and is suppose to have buttons at one end so that it can be worn like a cowl. I haven't gotten around to getting the buttons, but suspect that I don't have quite the swanlike neck that this kind of accessory is made for.
The yarn is a lovely soft merino and cashmere blend which I bought for $5 per ball at the recent KnitWorld sale.
It will keep my neck warm, once it actually gets cold enough for me to need one.
Speaking of colds, I am home with one right now. That's why I've got time to blog this...
Too bad they ended up too big for me - but they fit the boy's size 11 feet perfectly! The pattern is from Blendy Knits Socks.
