A couple of my friends at my knitting club! One is a crochet-er, but I don't hold that against her. In fact, It's why I named my group Santa Cruz Knit and Crochet. Posted by Picasa

made a hat and scarf ensemble for my best friend's brother. Been talking to him a lot on the phone and though he deserved a reward for putting up with me. It's the Kittyville hat from SnB 1 made in left over Wool Ease (the Blue) and Red Heart (the Black). I didn't want him to look like a huge blueberry. And I don't know if he's alergic to wool and other natural fibers like his sister. Posted by Picasa

Closer...... Here is the scarf in all it's glory.... It's a 3x3 rib of something like 15 stitches. Wanted something with a deep rib...  Posted by Picasa

Closest!!!! Here is the rib stretched out....just for show, it's meant to be tight, not spread out. Posted by Picasa

Scarf I made for my minister for Christmas....(she doesn't know yet) I am in love with this yarn. It's very much not at all my colors, but for some reason I love it - could never wear it in a million years. Hope she likes it! And since one skein made one scarf....I made two scarves and gave one to a friend for her birthday in the beginning of this month. Yay! Posted by Picasa

Way up close so you can see the pretty drop stitch pattern. Thank you Stitch 'n Bitch Nation for finally coaxing me into trying a drop stitch anything! Posted by Picasa

This is my first draft of a scarf pattern I am working on called Triumvarate.....this is the easy version....wanted to come up with something really nice to show for my effort. This is classic red and black in redheart (left over from the stashbuster blanket that I finished last month) Posted by Picasa
