Purse & Scarf

I have finished my very first pair of socks!! I will be posting them shortly, but until then here are a couple of other recent FOs.

Project: Mosaic Bag
Source: Spun Mag
Yarn: Noro Kureyon in #139, 3 skeins
Needles: US 4 & 5
Started: 10/12/06
Finished: 1/15/07
Comments: This colorwork gives the appearance of Fair Isle, but it's much easier. The knitting went pretty slowly on this. On such small needles a very tight fabric is created. The strap took forever because I made it twice as long as the pattern called for. Then there's the obvious procrastination with sewing the damn thing up! I still need to try & block the curling on the front. I really like the way the colors turned out, I think the back is purple & green, but overall I'm a bit disappointed.

Project: Yo, Drop It Scarf

Yarn: Colinette Giotto in Florentina
Needles: US 11
Started: 10/24/06
Finished: 10/26/06
Comments: I used my leftover Giotto from the Waterlily Tank. Easy peasy pattern.

They turned out great! You can hardly see any curling in the photo of the purse.

Happy Valentines Day!!!

Great scarf - it really shows off the lovely colours of the Giotto. I have a couple of skeins in my stash....
