FO Friday 41: Normal Programming Resumed










So after my ireful explosion last week, the focus this Friday is back to something pleasant and enjoyable - a finished object. You'd think I'd have more than one, and, actually, I do. Just not any photos, as I forgot to take pics of the cabled baby sweater before it was gifted.

The scarf for Uber-Cool Brother, which I was hoping to be at least blocking by today, is also not completed yet, as I frivolled yesterday away looking at fruit trees in garden centres with Belo, and an extra-long walk with the dog: who - I have discovered - likes eating fresh cherries.

So fortunately I have pics of the Lacy ZigZag Scarf I finished last week for one of DH's BILs. You'll remember it's made using RYC Classic Silk Wool DK in the colorway 'Brownstone'. And the hole is fixed too ....




































And see the lovely color of my lavender; I've lost the label, so I forget exactly which one it is ...

Lots more completed loveliness over at Tami's Amis ....

  2. Great scarf! The lavender is so pretty. I envy your garden. I'm so not a plant person.

  3. That's a really pretty scarf. It's not a colour I would normally go for, but I really like it in this scarf. I wonder it it's the texture that makes it so appealing?

  4. I love the zig zag scarf. It looks like a beefed up version of the strangling vines one. More substantial. :)

  7. The scarf is lovely. I applaud anyone who can withstand the monotony of a scarf. I give up after 1/3 of the way!

  9. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! I'd forgotten to put cherries on my shopping list. Umm, sorry. I didn't mean to detract from the fact that your scarf is wonderful. I am so used to seeing men's scarves only in black, brown, navy or grey, and No Pattern Allowed! I wonder if it is a UK vs US phenom, or are you a fortunate knitter surrounded by enlightened men who are fortunate enough to know a talented knitter?

  12. I love the color of the scarf. Your lavender is very healthy. We're so dry it is hard to such lush green color. Christina

  15. i love the scarf & the blocking job as well. :)

    In reply to your comment on my blog about the shawl pattern (I also posted this to my website but in case you don't see my reply)

    It’s called the EZ 100th Anniversary Hearts Half-Circle, & it’s found on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ez-100th-anniversary-hearts-half-circle & available as a free download. I’m not able to find any other source for it other than Ravelry! Hope this helps!

  16. I would definitely be all over that lavendar - it looks wonderful, and I hope it smells like it looks.

    And as for my bedcover - I crocheted the blocks together using a row of single crochet. Of course, all the blocks are knit, and in intarsia blocks, so that's the "knitting right." :)
