I finally finished my Damson and Veronica also has a completed one (that she blocked “properly” so it must be prettier than mine). After much debate, I decided to just finish the darn thing in the mismatched color and see what would happen. It actually looks really cool. It has a slight fading as if the ends are burning out into orange. Worked out well.
Kel is plotting her scarflette…eyeing up the Malabrigo Sock yarn. If you haven’t knitted a “scarflette” yet, its all the rage this season! These little things use basic lace in an easily memorizeable pattern that makes finishing one quite easy. These are great projects for holiday gifts and some of them are “man” friendly!
Worked in sock yarn, most of these projects are also a great way to use some amazing sock yarn without the stress of starting yet another pair of socks.
