getting caught up...



Before Kitchener, I finished a couple of scarves - Citron and Garden Path Shawlette.

Citron - before blocking
Citron was really a double inspiration from Rue of Tinks and Frogs. Not only did I win the yummy yarn from her (Woolen Rabbit Essence in Oakmoss), When I saw her version of Citron, I knew it would work for this wool!
I had to shorten the final ruffle, as I was running out of wool, but it still works. I gave it a steam block, and love how it looks as a scarf.

It's a good thing I stopped when I did - this is how much wool I had left over. The final bind off was a little touchy towards the end!

The Garden View is a nice, simple scarf for the Christmas gift box.

I used some Elann merino I had lying around, in a deep olive green, and it really blocked out nicely - the yarn overs opened out, and really showed off the leafy shapes.
While it is technically a "shawlette" as shown above, I think it will get worn more like this - wrapped around the neck to keep out the cold.

And another scarf finished (shown previously, but just recently blocked), and how I believe it will be worn - wrapped around and around to keep the neck cozy.

I'm still working on my Kitchener posts - both my prize haul and what I bought!

Sounds like a fun time was had at Kitchener. The scarves look wonderful.

I love Garden path. I am so not into shawls, but this I could wear as a scarf. I've downloaded. Thanks.
