FO: Gossamer Stars Scarf
You ever turn around and suddenly realize that two whole weeks have gone by in a flash? Suddenly I looked at my blog and realized that the last 3 posts were all Mod Monday posts!Which I find odd, since I've been knitting loads. oh look- here's a FO!
Pattern: Gossamer Stars Scarf
Yarn: Palette in Iris Heather, 2 skeins
Needles: 4mm/ US 6
Mods: I loved Claudine's mods on this pattern, and followed her lead by casting on only 53 stitches. I love the final result!
I really enjoyed this pattern, it was interesting to knit, and the result is a very pretty scarf that looks great from both sides.
This scarf is not for me. I don't know who it's for yet. I decided that this year, I wanted to knit several Christmas gifts, and I know myself well enough that if I leave it until the end of the year, it won't happen. So my plan is to knit some pretty things over the year to give away, and then decide closer to Christmas who would most love what. I find that I have so many generous people in my life, and at Christmas (which is especially crippling with an above average quantity of December birthdays, above average branches of family to buy for, and many wonderful friends) I often spend the last two months of the year feeling really upset that I can't feasibly return the generosity and love of the wonderful people on my life. So. I will knit.
Check it out here! I'm not sure if the alpaca is enjoying it that much to be honest, but at least the guy had the decency to put a life jacket on it.
