Here's a nice little scarf for Med Team International knit with leftover hand-dyed silk and some hand-dyed merino. Scraps- just tiny balls of each. Cast on the long way and seed stitch, changing colors at the end of each row. Soft and Oh So Warm!
On the needles now, Lorna's Laces from Angelika's Yarns in Portland. A sweater for a handsome Russian pre-med student. His dad works with my DH. I knitted a similar sweater for DH. He suggested I knit a nice warm sweater for the dad who was going deer hunting in Eastern Oregon, and the dad loves it. DH, who knows how much I love to knit, suggested that I knit a sweater for the pre-med lad who will soon be out on his own and putting himself through school and no doubt living in cold and draughty rooms. I gotta say, this chunky silk and merino blend is a freaking joy to work with! Wish the red color would photograph better, because it's darker, manly and subtle, and will have young ladies lining up for a chance to wash his dishes. I'll try to get a photo of him in the sweater.
It snowed in the passes last night. That morning, I had to scrape ice off my windshield at 8:30 am. I think the season is upon us. Time to cuddle by the fire and knit faster.
