I am just a gal who loves to knit and spin in my spare time and thought it would be nice to share my projects with everyone.

Horse Shoe Scarf

I finished my Horse Shoe cabled scarf this week. The yarn is Silky Flamme. It is a bulky weight Wool/Alpaca/Silk. It has the appearance of handspun and after using 4 skeins I wondered why I didn't use some of my own handspun from my stash. But it turned out very pretty and I like it alot.


Finished Tilted Duster

I finally finished my Tilted Duster. I love, love, love this sweater. It is Oasis Aussie Wool in bulky weight and super warm. The pattern is from the fall issue of Interweave knits. I wore it to work on friday with lots of nice compliments. The only changes I would make in the future if I were to make this sweater again would be to add more to the sleeves. The picture in the magazine shows a tight sleeve but I personally would like it a little more loose. The other change I would make would be to make the collar not quite as high as the 5" the pattern called for. It goes up the back of my head a little too far but it really wasn't uncomfortable.
