My New Wool Obsession

Lately I've been getting some knitted projects finished for the holidays. I've been making scarves. I won't say who they are for, just in case they happen to drop by my blog.

The wool for the first one was just beautiful, I loved working with it and seeing how it knitted out with the color changes.

This one is knitted in the same pattern as the first, but with the solid color you see the zig zag pattern much more distinctly.

This one is so soft, made with a blend of Marino wool and cashmere. I'm getting quite a stash of yarns, and I'm finding that half the fun of knitting is experimenting with the different colors and fibers and being thrilled with the outcome.

I get to stay home today, and can hopefully "hide" all day in my sewing room and bring a few sewing projects to completion :)

Enjoy the day!

Dawn, Your scarves are so pretty. I've always wanted to learn how to knit. I tried once years ago and wasn't very successful. You are giving me inspiration.
