Excitement! News! Amazement!

You will not believe the news I am about to tell you. Sit down. Seriously. In under 24 hours, I started and...ahem...finished (well, finished in the sense that I CO'ed) a scarf! Yes, I actually completed a scarf in a resonable period of time. Yes I knit a garter stitch scarf on size 13 needles; however, this was the type of scarf I was craving for at the moment. Yes, it won't keep me warm, but it looks so darn cute! I used Modea Dream and this stuff is great! It has the mohair feel without being itchy at all! I made another tiny scarf with mohair yarn and as much as I like it, it is pretty scratchy. This yarn is so freakin' soft and light. I haven't even blocked it and it is feathery soft and airy.

In other news, my amazing friend E has traded me tiger sock yarn for an exciting but yet to be named item. The important news is I have tiger yarn though! I now have new motivation to learn how to knit socks properly to use this lovely, happy yarn. Now some of you might be thinking that wool socks are silly in Florida, but let me tell you that it is chilly here. currently says that it is 48 degrees out. My cotton socks just are cutting it anymore. I desperately need to learn how to knit wooly socks to keep my feet warm.

  1. I can't believe how cold it is down there. Maybe you can make the Tiger pattern in the "Socks Socks Socks" book? The colors would be appropriate.
