i have been knitting

It's just quick little projects, but I think that I'll start something bigger this weekend. No sweaters, thank you; I'm still reeling from the Hourglass Sweater debacle. I've been looking at a lot of lace patterns, and will narrow down the choices tomorrow.

I love making hats and scarves, and these fit, and turned out well. Both patterns from the Yarn Harlot, and yarn from Morehouse Merino (top) and Misti Alpaca (bottom). I've also cast on a new pair of socks for a gift.

However, I can't block anything while the apartment is up for sale (as of this morning!). Some knit item was drying, and the realtor was wrinkling his nose in distaste. Hubby felt vindicated, because he's always said that yarn shops had a peculiar smell - and I've never noticed. Maybe it's a guy thing?

Must be a guy thing. Wet wool does have a scent, but I'd be hard pressed to call it nasty.

The scarf and hat turned out great!

Good luck selling your place!

I don't know if I'd call it a guy thing, but most definitely a non-knitter thing.

The scarf looks great. What size needles, what's the pattern and is Morehouse Merino really as good as everyone says?

MMM....Misti Alpaca. I'd wear that hat in a heartbeat.
