another one for the gift pile

Is it a ruffled ball?
 hang on, let me spread it out for you...
 a barbell? I could do a couple of hundred reps with this weight...
 no... it's yet another Churchmouse Barb'sKoigu Ruffle (not made in Koigu)
Doesn't look like much on the table, but a simple knot at the neck, and this really looks good. (Okay, maybe not in this picture, but picture it tucked into the neck of a jacket, with just a cascade of ruffles tumbling out.
 Yummy. And I have to thank Needles again for gifting me with this pattern. I've now made it twice and plan on a few more. It's classic and timeless and beautiful.

Oh, and the yarn is a merino/silk/linen blend I picked up somewhere. Lovely earthy colours, and I have no idea who makes it or where I got it. Probably a fair somewhere - either Kitchener or the Knitters Frolic.
And yes, I know if I bothered to use Ravelry and all it's bits and pieces, I'd know where I got it and when, and how much I had, and who made it. But I don't use Ravelry that way. I'm too damn lazy to catalogue all my stuff, and really, I kind of enjoy finding "new" things when I give the stash a toss every now and then...

that is the same scarf Gail showed off at knit group a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday she gifted me with the pattern. I have some great Kroy sock yarn in gorgeous fall colours I'm planning on using.

That pattern was a slow starter, somehow but over the last few months it has taken off. I have seen dozens of variations. My favourite so far was done out of rich fall colours in Moochi Plus. The knitter had knit fewer rows and fewer stitches to accomodate the thicker yarn. Fantastic.

Nice job. I don't use Ravelry to it's full potiental either.
