Ribbons and Scarves

It has been ages since I’ve posted about my knitting.  I’m working away on small projects, like I normally do.  Hopefully once all the Christmas gifts are done I will tackle something big again.

The entrelac scarf I was knitting for Baby Man has been put on hold.  My parents bought him a new snowsuit that is grey and blue, and I found hat and mitts I forget we had that are red and grey.  These are not good matches for a blue and brown scarf.  It was coming along nicely though, and there is enough yarn yet to be knit to make it into an adult scarf.  I’m glad now that I made it too wide.

Baby Man still needed a scarf, so I cast on a reversible cable scarf using this pattern: Palindrome.  Unfortunately, I’m not the sharpest tack in the box anymore, and I grabbed one US10 and one US10.5 needle tip for my interchangeable needles.  Even so, the scarf turned out fine, and Baby Man isn’t quite 2 yet so I figure he doesn’t care.  The yarn in Bernat Berella 4 in colour 08893 Dark Oxford.

On the sock needles is still Pink Ribbon Socks by Lloyd Designs.  I’m done the first sock, and it is looking really nice.  Their website is down, or I would repost the link to the pattern.  The yarn for these is Sirdar’s Calico in 0719 Bikini, which is a lovely pink just right for Breast Cancer Awareness month.  This is a cotton/acrylic blend yarn, and it is so soft and squishy.  I’m looking forward to knitting a sweater with it next winter,  perhaps.
