Black & White

In October, my mom came to visit. As is usual, we ended up where there was yarn (she’s not a knitter though) and my mom fell in love with a scarf that was on display. I had no idea how to knit with the yarn once I saw it but decided to give it a go. The yarn was like netting and actually kind of fun to knit. Here’s the finished scarf modeled by my mom (she was freezing as I took this picture).

Next, is a hat for my hubby. Rich found a website that had beautiful merino sweaters and hats for men. That prompted him to ask if I had anything like that in my stash to make him a watch cap. I had a merino and cashmere mix that worked out beautifully.

So, now if I can just get myself in gear to block a few things and take some good pictures, I’ll have a few sweaters to share. Soon, I hope, soon.
