One Down, Three to Go

Finished seaming Backyard Leaves tonight. I hope my mom likes it!


Pattern: Backyard Leaves from Scarf Style
Yarn: 4 balls Karabella Aurora 8

I really enjoyed this pattern. It went fairly quickly and the chart wasn't too hard to master. I'm glad I got to make this one as a gift, I probably wouldn't have made one for myself. I'm more of a stripy scarf kind of girl.

Progress on Branching Out is going well. I'm at repeat 22 and need at least 22 more to make a decent length scarf. I don't want to make it too long though, it's not exactly a "wrap around your neck 3 times and wear out in a blizzard" kind of thing.

Now the problem becomes what to knit next. I'm thinking about making either the Log Cabin Socks (I have yarn already) or making the Vintage Beaded Gloves from Handknit Holidays for my Grandmother. Thing is, she lives in Florida - though she usually visits for at least 3 month during the winter. This one is a tough call. Any suggestions?

Very pretty scarf! What do you think of the Aurora 8?

Turned out really pretty! I'm happy to hear that it was a fairly quick knit. I will probably knit one pretty soon for myself.

Love the scarf! Very nice. Re: your grandmother - which would she wear more? My grandmas mostly wore hose, rather than socks. Or if she likes scarves, maybe another Branching Out would be a cozy choice...
