And Done!

3 days till Christmas and my holiday knitting is officially done. Woohoo! 

Dual Cable Scarf

Yarn: Caron One Pound in Dusty Rose

Needles: US 10.5 

Notes: The cables are 4×4 (total of 8 stitches per cable). 

Hermoine Socks

Yarn: Valley Yarns Huntington in Lite Grey Heather (Merino Wool/ Nylon)

Needle: US Size 1

Notes: I used the double magic loop method for these socks. I knitted only 12 repeats on the cuff. I really messed up on the heel. I noticed too far along so I just kept on going as I was on a deadline.  

 It is 3 days till Christmas so I better get these blocked and wrapped! 🎄

Finished Object Friday: Another Lacy Scarf

Friday woot woot! I know you are excited. I am excited to FINALLY show you this finished object.  This one felt like it took forever to complete.

Meet my newest Lacy Scarf. I shall call her Olivia, as she is the color of olives. Here she is before I blocked her.

I found this free pattern on the blog Give Me a Purl. It was a pretty easy project to make. It would definitely be good beginner lace project.

My personal changes to the pattern: Instead of using the recommended size US 10 needles, I used size US 5. I liked the slightly tighter tension it gave. I also used wool/nylon blend yarn rather than alpaca. For more information please see my Ravelry page.

This scarf is intended as a birthday gift for a friend. Fingers crossed she doesn’t figure out it is for her before I send it off. Hopefully, it is thin enough that she can wear it even though summer is approaching. You never know when a chilly summer night might pop up. Right?

What are you finishing this Friday?
