Hi all:

Two new FOs...

1. a scarf I just finished based on the Moderne pattern (the left half of the pattern for the Moderne blanket in Mason-Dixon Knitting). I added some beads (which are knit in). This was fun and fast to make.

Finished size: 40"x12:, roughly
Yarn: curlilocks by fleece artist (raspberry, eggplant, plum)
Needle size: 6 mm
Knitting time: 5 hours approx.

I decided to use the same size needles for casting off as I wanted to see what would happen. Hence, the warp, which I rather like. If you want to avoid this, use 8 mm needles for casting off.

2. socks

My first pair!

Yarn: Fleece Artist sock merino
Pattern: on the ballband of the yarn
Needle size: 2.5 mm
Knitting time approx: 10 hours (for both socks)
