Straggler | Celtic Cast On

You know its bad when your husband is whinning about not having a new post to read….. I didn’t realize my knitting captivated him so much

Pattern:Quick Mustard Scarf by Jane Richmond

Yarn: Patons Shetland Chunky in Mustart

Needles: U.S. 15

Start Date: December 22nd 2008

Finish Date: December 23rd 2008

I was in need of a quick simple project that would distract me from the finishing frenzy just before christmas. Chunky needles and some bright yellow yarn proved to be just the pick me upper I needed.

I knit almost all of this over an hour or two of telly, with only a row or two to knit the following day. A simple soothing knit that grew quickly, ahhhhh instant FO.

2009 has arrived and I thought i’d start off the year with a small project that I’ve been dying to cast on for…. Thermis by Kristen Patay. I’m using Patons Classic Merino in Grey Mix, the same as in the pattern. As soon as I saw this pattern I knew I had to knit it and grey seems to be a favourite colour of mine in the past few months so it only made sense that I make it in grey. This pattern reminds me of a sweater, the waffle stitch and the way the little collar flap buttons over like the top of a sweater, ahhhh I love it so much!

More new knits to come and plans for 2009.
