The Peasy Scarf is finished!  I really liked the pattern – like I said, it was easy.  I’m just slow.  And I love the result – it looks kinda fancy, don’t you think?  I started this on size 11 straight needles, but… I couldn’t do it.  I’ve been spoiled… so I picked up my KnitPicks Harmony Options set and used my size 17 tips and a circular cable… I can never go back.  Maybe I should start collecting the Harmony straight needles.  What do you think?

Nutkin roll cuff

I have cast on for my Domestic Betty Baker’s Dozen KAL October sock – finally!  The pattern is the ever popular Nutkin – and no, I’m not using Wollmeise.  Sigh… I’m making these for my mom, and she has a wool allergy, so I’m using Kollage Luscious sock yarnin Rusty.  It’s 63% cotton and 37% elastic, so she should have no problem.  I’m hoping the elastic starts to appear, because as of right now, the fabric is pretty non-elastic.  And the yarn is kinda splitty.  But I like the color a lot.

Here’s something funny for you – while I was winding my Kollage yarn and casting on for the socks (using a Harmony Fixed Circular Knitting Needle Recital screen shot - 1998natch!– to do 2 socks at once on Magic Loop), I was also copying old videos to DVD to get rid of the bulky VHS tapes.  I was working on my recital tapes, and I took some pictures of the TV while it was on so I could blog about it on my family blog… but here’s one pose I caught, and I have no idea what I’m doing here.  I look rather Diva-esque, don’t you think?  I can’t tell if that’s supposed to be a Diva pose, or if I’m supposed to be emoting something different…. Anyway – that was 10 years ago, and I’m glad I’m knitting and not singing!  I got butterflies in my stomach just watching the videos!
