I have some FOs!

When I bought my boyfriend a few books and DVDs from Amazon a while back I sneakily added Norah Gaughaun’s “Knitting Nature” to the basket to score free delivery. I absolutely love this book, and it’s good to see through Ravelry that jumpers that look huge in the book are somewhat fitted when placed on normal sized people. So I set to on the Droplet Hat:

Scruffy garden, and a rare shaft of sunlight. A closer look:

The yarn’s Malabrigo Worsted in Sealing Wax, which worked really well in the pattern, and is incredibly soft and warm.

After the Great Scarf-Making gift commission of Christmas I realised I didn’t actually have a scarf for myself, due to losing my Kureyon Striped one. I also didn’t want to spend too much time making one, but knew standing at bus stops with a cold neck wasn’t doing much for my mood. Luckily, I’d participated in a Malabrigo swap, and was sent two skeins of Chunky wool in Intenso, a red shot through with pinks and purples. It knitted up speedily, and once blocked was really long, but sufficiently wide.

Hopefully the neighbours didn’t see me weaving this into their fir in order to get a photo. Next time, my first sock.

I agree, the hat is particulary pretty.

I love red. *sigh*

Ps. Like the new layout, almost didn’t recognise where I was!

I *love* those. Love them! The hat is so great it’s even tempting me to buy Knitting Nature… until now I haven’t been that sold. Is the scarf really just garter stitch? It’s so pretty
