Helen wants pictures. The first one is Aria in a combination of Lamb's Pride worsted and Unger Slalom in the red colorway. It's fun to knit, but you have to pay attention. It's about 24" now. The second is Easy Wave in Paton's Classic Wool Merino. The pattern called for 10s, the yarn called for 7s and I compromised with 8s. A little narrow. I would add stitches to the next one. The third one is Meandering Stripes in Bernat's Bamboo. Nice and soft.

Finally got back to knitting

Finally got back to Knitting New Scarves after a brief timeout in making an entrelac scarf with Noro Silk Garden.

Too many scarves?

OK, so I've gone a little crazy with this book and have knit 2 easy waves, one tilted blocks, one meandering stripes, a parallels, and am working on an Aria. I gave the Parallels to me sister. I've shown the others to my local weaver's guild and they have started some of the scarves themselves. It's viral. Everyone I show the book to is intrigued.
