I've got a few of little FO's to share on Friday, but here are two more things I'm working on right now. I just cast on a thick scarf for my Grandpa, using left over wool from his hat last Christmas. I am using cream on either end and the blue in the middle. I've done a provisional cast on because I don't think I'll have enough to make a long scarf, and then I can just join the ends together to make a circular scarf. I'm pretty sure my Grandma will steal it anyway, she did so with the hat!
The yarn is Sirdar Denim Ultra, 60% acrylic, 25% cotton, 15% wool. Thick and soft. It is just going to be a plain garter stitch affair.
Lastly, I'm making yet another Calorimetry. I can't stress enough how much I love this head band, how easy it is, how gift-worthy I find it. I'm on my third one now (more on the second one on Friday). One reason I LOVE this pattern is that it is fully adjustable, because you use the holes that are created in the pattern for the button. I am making this one for my Aunt, who has a tiny head, and I don't have to worry about it fitting her, which is great.
For this particular one I'm hoping to add a flower for a bit of bling, wish me luck on that though! This is a mystery yarn from my stash, which I bought when I first started knitting and had no idea how to figure out how much yarn I needed for a project. Come to think of it, I still don't. :) The picture doesn't do it justice however, it is much prettier in person.
And very lastly, I have a book this week! As I feel more and more on top of my Christmas knitting--I'll make the postal deadline--I have more time to read without feeling like I should be knitting. I'm about 1/2 way through the Swan Theives by Elizabeth Kostova. I enjoyed her other book, The Historian, so I have high hopes for this one. It moves along at a steady pace, but is a rather gentle book thus far.
Please do check out all the other great WIP's on the go this week:
