I’ve been knitting lately. I finished a pair of mittens for a Christmas present and two things for me. The mittens are not being shown for obvious reasons, but the others are here. The first is what I’m calling a Sea Slug scarf. The pattern is really titled Winter Head Wrap by Mac and Me but I wouldn’t wear it that way and all the ruffles remind me of sea slugs or, for the more scientific inclined, nudibranchs. You can see some pictures here and here and here to see what I mean. I used Bebe Cotsoy yarn, a blend of cotton and soy fibers.
The second project is a Spiral Hat. The pattern can be found in the Storey publication 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders on page 164. It is a smallish pattern which fits my little head just fine. I used Louisa Harding Castello yarn, a wool, cotton and synthetic blend. It made up quickly on size 8 circulars and double points.
Now that I have these little projects finished and out of the knitting bag, it’s on to …. Socks!
