My Latest Scarf

I finished my latest scarf last night. That's two since Thanksgiving. If I keep up at this pace, I can make one for each of my girlfriends for Christmas next year.

The yarn I selected for this one is a hand-tied collection of different browns and turquoise with a little orange added to the mix. Since there are so many different textures, I decided to just knit this one.

I made the fringe from a section of the ribbon included with the yarn.

Here's that same ribbon knitted up.

Stitch detail - see all the different yarns?

If the weather continues to be as cold as it's been the past few days, I'll wear it to MOPS on Friday. I think it would look great with my orange cashmere sweater.

That is beautiful yarn! The fringe on the scarf is my favorite part. I tried to start knitting last winter - it was so much harder than I thought it would be!!! I kept losing my place and skipping stitches, and counting wrong....yeesh.

Very cute! I love brown, turquoise and orange. Such a cute color combo. I'm jealous of y'all and your cold weather, it's been warm and muggy here. Hard to be Christmasy when it's hot!

Very cute. I love how the knitted ribbon looks. I should knit with some ribbon - if I can find it at a good price.

I just finished a purse for my cousin and I'm working on one for Jean. I think I will post them soon.
