Scarftober?

It's not all socks around here these days - several scarves have jumped on the needles this past week.



Out of the frogged Claudia's Sport - Isobel from Cider Moon's free patterns. I am really enjoying this, and it is working up fairly quickly.



Also from the failed Chevron scarf - Branching Out, restarted for the upteenth time. I'm finding it much easier this go-round.


And finally, I could resist the call of the Noro no longer. Two colors (for now) for a Striped Scarf. I love it. My only disappointment is that one of the colors has pulled apart on me FIVE times since I started. That's way too many freakin' ends to weave in for a scarf. It'd better stop it.

  1. There must be a chill in that Texas air . . . You are using sock yarn for these, right? I think that's perfect for Socktoberfest.

  2. Hee. I thought I was the only one living in scarf heaven. This summer I was knitting with some friends who were being nice and encouraging about how far I've come since learning to knit, and one of them said, yeah, you know, when you're a beginner, all you can do is scarves. And I just cracked up, because I have four or five scarves on needles.

  5. I have totally been wanting to make that brooklyntweed scarf. I'm going to a small fiber fest this weekend, so let's see if some Noro jumps into my bag. Love the other two scarves as well!!

  7. Beautiful scarves. Don't you agree that even in the warm winters we have here in Texas, a long, skinny scarf and jeans jacket always look chic? These will be a joy to wear!

  8. Beautiful scarves! I think it must be scarf season, because I'm knitting two myself!
