I needed a break from socks. I have been tortured by that sock. And I have some Christmas gifts to get done.
Like this scarf.
I bought the yarn (Lambs Pride Bulky in Fuschia and Shangr-ri La) when I was in Boston in June, it's a gift for my cousin Maura. I think she will like it. It's a simple yarn over pattern on #17s. They feel quite different than the #1s I am using for my sock. I feel like I am using my whole upper body to knit rather than just my little hands and fingers.
It will brighted up the long, cold New York winter.
Here's a look at the yarn. This is a fun, quick project.
