I finally got around to weaving in the ends of the three scarves I’ve made from the free yarn (there might have been more done by now but I’ve been a little…um…side tracked playing Civilization III. I cannot help myself – it’s an addiction that rears its ugly head once or twice a year and I must then spend weeks on end taking over the world).
The two multicolored things are ribbon yarn that has a slightly metallic sheen to it. I did simple garter stitch, using large needles to give it the open look. The green, tweedy scarf in the middle is made of some type of wool (you can see I forgot to save the labels, can’t you?) in a broken rib pattern.
I also finished another pair of socks from KnitPicks Dancing sock yarn. This pair isn’t nearly as psychedelic as the first, which was a relief.
. I’ve started making the legs of my socks a little shorter, and since I’ve got small feet, this means I managed to get a full pair of socks out of just one ball of yarn, and even have a little bit of yarn left over. This does leave me with the problem of what to do with the second ball, but I have been toying with the idea of making some fingerless gloves, so perhaps I can use it for that instead.
