Irish Hiking Scarf...Done!

And what a fun knit it was my first try at cables too. If you've never done cables, you can do it! You can find the pattern here Irish Hiking Scarf I still have no pics to post...I just can't get any good ones...I need a decent camera! Actually, I just need some lessons on how to take a decent photo -- and I know the PERFECT person! Now, if I can just talk him in to coming here to teach me...I will be in business! What do you think, Linda? Can he come for a week or so? Think I would survive that long?

On to SOCKS! In a lovely Merino wool that knits like buttah. I am just loving this wool!! You can find some from The Painter Tiger OMG, her merino is to dye (pun intended!) for! And the colors!!!! LOVELY!! It actually feels like you're knitting with a yarn that was some how infused with's that soft! LOVE this stuff. After the holidays I am going to ask her to custom dye some for just ME! Her signature color (you can see it here is something I MUST see -- in a pair of socks -- in this wool! Acutally, I must feel them too! HEAVEN! Pure Heaven I tell you.

That's all for now. Back to cleaning (YUCK) but the sooner I get that done, the sooner I can get back to knitting.
