Scarves and Such

More updates on WIPs today, as I have dead camera batteries, so I can't show you any new stuff!

In that recent bout of starteritis, I started a "My So-Called Scarf" out of Brook Farms Four Play. I ripped out the previous incarnation as it was too tightly knit. Now, on a size 11 needle (like the pattern calls for!) it is much better.

The beginnings of the Snowy Triangle Scarf from Handknit Holidays, which is just a multidirectional scarf. This is in Paton's Soy Wool Stripes, which I enjoy working with.

Sophie is much further than the picture shows - about four rows and some i-cord from being done.

The Rutabaga bag hasn't seen much progress, as I don't like working with the hemp yarn for too long.

I started the Jumbo Elephant from Zoe Mellor's Knitted Toys the same night I started the snake. I haven't worked on it since, but I really want a new toy for me!

There are a few more knits lurking in the wings, but they need to have their picture taken before their blog preview. More tomorrow!


  1. You've got some great yarns to work with there. I especially like the Pattons.

  2. Sophie looks really cool!
