|Flying Home Scarf|
The picture here isn't that great as I had to use the flash (it was night and my apartment doesn't have good lighting for taking pictures). The colours are a little bit darker in real life. In the daylight I think it looks really good.
I used the Flying Home Scarf pattern, a free download on Ravelry. I really enjoyed this pattern; it wasn't too difficult, and while I couldn't memorize the pattern (it's a 10 row repeat), it was easy to follow. I will more than likely be knitting this pattern again.
My blocking isn't that great as I didn't have anything to use for my blocking, other than pins. I've since ordered some blocking wires from Knit Picks and will be able to use them on the next scarf I make - which happens to be what I'm working on now.
I'll refrain showing any progress on my current scarf or mentioning the pattern for the current project since I am knitting it for my new swap partner in the Stashbuster swap at Ravelry. This time I am only knitting and sending the scarf. I like the pattern I'm using, and will likely knit it again in the future. Once this new swap partner gets the scarf, I'll post a picture and the name of the pattern on here.
Aside from these scarves, I haven't been working much on the hat I'd been working on. I am on the decreasing at the top of the hat; I'm just waiting until I get these swap scarves completed and then I'll go back and finish the hat, block it, and post a picture of it. I do like the way it looks so far, though, and I can't wait to see the finished product.
Well, I'd best be off and get some marking done for work so that I can do some knitting a little later on this evening. Happy knitting!
