Ball Bands are Versatile!

I keep getting so distracted by knitting, I forget to update the blog!

This is a pretty simple scarf I made my Mom for Christmas.



Project: Diagonal Rib Scarf
Source: I got the stitch pattern from last year's Knitting Pattern-a-Day Calendar
Yarn: Misti Chunky Alpaca #678, 1 hank
Needles: US 10 1/2
Started: 10/4/06
Finished: 10/22/06
Comments: I love the alpaca! The length is 46" including fringe.


These are a couple of band cuffs inspired by Mason Dixon Knitting that I made for my nieces. I want to knit that rockin' purse someone made as well.




Project: Band Cuffs
Source: Star
Yarn: Sugar 'n Cream in Grape & Yellow with Patio Pinks
Needles: US 7
Started: 11/15/06
Finished: 11/16/06
Comments: These were a fun little project. They knit up fast & easy in under an hour.

I keep knitting on, waiting on yarn to complete my capelet. In the meantime, I was able to finally Finish(!) a couple of things completely. All that's hanging around now is that pesky sock!

The rest of your yarn might be here tomorrow!! Or Friday.

And don't worry, you'll get that little scamp of a sock one day.
