My other two projects, the Shedir Hat and the Bobby Bear, have been driving me to distraction. Well, let me rephrase that. I've been too distracted to knit them properly as they require concentration and have lots of fiddly bits.

So, I cast on this Undulate Scarf in this magnificent Malibrigo worsted weight yarn. This stuff is so utterly yummy. And the pattern is so easy you only need to barely pay attention. Perfect. :)

What I've been up to as of late. :)

This is the Shedir Hat. I've been knitting it for a friend of mine who is going through chemo. It's 128 stitches per round and full of cables and lovely. It's; however, taking a *loooooong* time!! :) I hope to get it done over the weekend. :)

I love Collinette Jitterbug. I don't love how little yarn is in a skein. So, I used BMFA sock yarn on the cuff, heel and toes. I think it turned out pretty darn spiffy. OK! Off to knit the other one.

Photo!

So, as this is supposed to be my SCA journal as well as my knitting journal, here's a photo from this weekend, in where I am giving a rose to Blayde's most excellent wife, Serita, as he best me during a Rose Challenge at Crown Tourney.



I loved the photo so I thought I would pass it along. :)

I finished this sock this evening -- and how I utterly love it. I loved knitting it. Yarn Harlot was the designer -- I got the pattern and the yarn as part of the Rockin' Sock club.

Ah. I love this yarn. I love this pattern. I am now, by the way, completely enamored with pattern knitting and have been spending hours looking for my next sock pattern. :)

Whee! :)

*clears off the dust*

Wow. So, it's been a while since I posted. Sorry about that! I have been knitting a good bit, just access to uploading has been spotty. Currently, I am working on knitting another Bunny Hat for my baby nephew Collin (since his mom, my twin sister, apparently lost said hat. Woops), baby mittens to match said hat, and working on the "Lenore" socks from the Rockin' Sock Club. :)

I have a lot of other stuff planned for the needles, including knitting the stuff for the Doctor's Without Borders promise I made a year ago. I suck. I also moved across country, had a newborn baby in the family to knit for and got a new job. SO. SOON. Promise!!

On that note, here's the wee bit of Christmas knitting I did this year:



Mom bought the yarn to match the sweaters she bought them -- so it's sort of a joint gift. :) The Blue and Green were made out of "Bazic Wool" by Classic Elite Yarns and the brown and white was made out of "Rowan Calmer". MAN, I loved these yarns. Both were utter dreams to work with, especially the Calmer. Mmm, Rowan.

Happy Holidays! I promise to post more of what I am knitting soon.

And oh yeah, I'm rani23 @ Ravelry. Feel free to friend me!
