Love this Scarf!! I used one skein of Malabrigo and I have to say that this is the softest scarf most will ever feel. I could have made it a little longer but the person who will recieve this has a little one and a little one on the way.. last thing she needs to get strangled by it.
Pattern: My So Called Scarf free pattern from Sheep In the City found here.
Yarn: Malabrigo 1 skein
Needles: 8 mm straight Areos
Recipient: My Sister! Merry Christmas!!

At long last, I made time to download these pictures of my finished Salina to my computer. I love this sweater! I've been wearing it out more than I thought I would and it just so happens that it is very comfortable!! I've done almost all my Christmas shopping in this sweater.
A close up on the great buttons...
Pattern: Salina by Kim Hargreaves from Rowan's Vintage Style
Yarn: Rowan's Felted Tweed in Herb (146) 5.25 balls for XS size
Needles: Addi Turbo circulars 3.25mm and 3.75mm
Mods: I increased the length of the body by 1 cm before the waist shaping as well as the sleeve length by 1 cm just before working the increases. I also sewed down the buttonhole flap at the bottom because my 5 cast on stitches seemed a little tight and pulled up a bit. I really enjoyed knitting this sweater. The felted tweed made the plain stockinette stitching interesting. And I LOVE moss stitch! I could knit this again... although, if I were, I think I would figure out how to make the arm holes not so big. Other than that, I'm pretty happy with the turn out.
