In Knitting

Last week I finished some knitting. This is a scarf for the men in the house. (We’ve plenty of scarves, but most of them are pink and orange and girlie.) I love the blue and browns…and I just might wear it on occasion myself. It’s wool and silk from Brooks Farm that I picked up at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.

Now I’m on to a honeycomb patterned hat and scarf for me. The teal-y yarn is wool and mohair from Kid Hollow Farm, dee-lish! The brown is stash yarn. Lots of brown in the stash for some reason…

The pattern is from Loop-d-loop by Teva Durham, fall Winter 2007. I hope when I am done with mine I look happier than that model wearing it. Maybe she has the brownie blues, too…or just the blues. Not me, though, I’m happy knittin’.

What’s on your needles? Anything?

    There hasn’t been anything on mine in a long, long time. I need to dust them off soon. For some reason I can’t get in the mood when it’s hot outside.

    Great pattern Betz! Did you have a cold rainy day in the middle of summer? That always makes me want to pull out the knitting needles. Be sure to post a picture of the finished project. Can’t wait to see it!

    I finished a pair of socks yesterday, and started a scarf with bamboo yarn…an experiment.

    I wonder what that honeycomb looks like on the reverse…any chance of a picture?


    Great job! I am working on 2 socks at a time on circular needles. Really nice to have a pair done at the same time.

    The model just isn’t too happy because she doesn’t have the satisfaction of making it herself.

    Happy Knitting!

    Funny thing, I’m also working on a manly scarf with brown wool. It’s the cable sampler pattern from Debbie Macomber’s new Blossom Street book. I also have too few manly scarves, considering I’m the only female in residence!

    Beautifull and delicious. Very nice.

    The scarf came out great, which guy’s gonna get it? I have to check out that pattern, love, love, love it!

  • hey now! I recognize that scarf. Is it possible that some of the knitting that created it was done sitting in comfy leather chairs in the NH airport?

    I love the honeycomb scarf. I want to start one now! Maybe the model has a puss on because she knows that she has to return the scarf/hat after the shoot!

    I crochet, but I wish I could knit! I want to take a class someday…that looks like a great project!

    Hi i’m just a blog hopper. I saw the scarf you knit and it’s very nice! I just started learning it, I wonder if you have to keep changing the color to make it the way you knit? =) And I like your blog! It looks simple and nice! =D

    Hope you won’t mind a stranger talking here. =)
