What's on the Needles?

Socks...

One pair is a lovely multi-green with a mild pattern. Can't remember the yarn, but I got it a the Needle Emporium tent sale. The second is Patons Kroy Socks FX in muted greys and greens. This yarn feels GREAT on the feet, and the pattern of colours make "sibling" socks - not identical but definately a pair...


I have a bagful of Noro Silk Garden. I have decided to make a bunch of hats and scarves and mittens... maybe Christmas presents???

The Sugar Cane scarf is almost done... the pattern is really easy. Cast on 25 stitches, and work in stocking stitch (knit the right side and purl the wrong side) for 6 rows, then work in reverse stocking stitch (purl the right side, knit the wrong side) for 6 rows. Repeat this 12 row pattern over and over until the yarn is gone... or the scarf is as long as you want. The yarn is a sport weight (recommended 4mm needles -US 6) but I knit it on 5mm, to allow a bit more drape. You can use any yarnyou want, just knit on a bit bigger needle than recommended and use about 100grams.
