photo-happy

Let's see, I got some Shibui sock yarn (for an upcoming birthday, I think) in colour 21, which I love. We shall see how it ends up working up...

I am past the heel on the first of Ms. R's Fleece Artist socks (I tore through the foot, then life got in the way). I'm using the same recipe as the last pair I knit. I cannot for the life of me get a decent shot of the colours...

This totally made my day, I found this tied to my handlebars when I came out of the cafe I had lunch (and knit on Ms. R's socks) in. I saw a few more tags here and there as I mucked about downtown.

I got some buttons for the secret project. Somehow, I think y'all can guess what it is. (not 100% on the buttons, but I'm leaning towards yes. If not, I can finally start a button box!)

The Scarflet made it out East and has seen more snow than I have this year. I hear that it is well loved and enjoying it's new life. I will not be writing up a pattern for it, as there are plenty of examples out there, and this one was too similar to some others for me to be comfortable stamping it as my own. But really, 6" wide by about two feet long with button holes at one end in some fun textured stitch, remembering to add a border if it is likely to curl. Pick your favourite stitch and go nuts!

Whew, I think that is all for today. Have a good one, peoples!

I also love the Shibui sock yarn--I have yarn envy hardcore. I love how the colorful socks are coming out too! Your friend who got your neck warmer is lucky, it looks so cozy!
