finished things!

I should be sleeping but look: I finished stuff!

The Purl Ridge Scarf! (Ravelry link)

I realize, actually, that I never talked about starting this project. I was deep in my desire to find The Perfect Yarn™ for the Dipped Infinity Scarf (which I am still determined to do) and then I saw that other people were knitting other scarves of the same type and I decided to, you know, be smart and look on Ravelry. I found Stephen West’s pattern for The Purl Ridge Scarf and I thought it fit the bill. Then I remembered this yarn, Ty-Dy Cotton which I bought in Placerville as a souvenir of my trip with the knitters to Tahoe last May. I never knew what to do with it… until now!

A little morning knitting.

I love it already. I wore it for a bit today but it got too warm, even though it’s just cotton. I think it will be nice when it really is cold again, so that might be November.

I also finished a baby sweater.

I made it to match one that Juls made for our knitting friend who had twins last week. Juls made the girl one and I made the boy one. It looks much cuter on the bear, don’t you think?

I think the Koala needs one with shorter sleeves
The bear needs longer arms.

It’s All Seasons Cotton, of course. It’s a colorway that I actually bought from Juls a few years ago because she saw my Rogue knit from it and said she had this yarn and did I want it? Of course I did! I have two sweaters out of that exact yarn myself. I did not mean to make my friend’s baby match my sweater but I guess I did. Whoops!

I should have taken a progress picture of Aidez because there actually has been progress. I’m not convinced it will be finished at a time when it will be at all the right temperature to wear it but the cold always does come back eventually… right?

      Thanks! The colors in the scarf just come from the yarn. It looks pretty but it’s really simple to do. I hope the sweater is as cute on the baby it’s intended for. I think it will be. 🙂

      Thanks for your comments!

    The sweater is super cute! And the scarf is lovely, and if you want to be REALLY cold in July, just take a trip to Ocean Beach in SF, I am positive you can wear your sweater there. And probably still be freezing.
