I finally finished my dad’s scarf, but I can’t really post pics here because he could stop by and the whole birthday surprise would be ruined. To make matters worse, his birthday isn’t until November. Stay tuned–I’ll post sometime this year, I promise! For those of you (you know, all 2 readers!!) who are part of Ravelry, stop by my projects page and take a look–there are several pics there. For the other person who reads this, I followed the One Row Handspun Scarf pattern as posted by the Yarn Harlot herself using some Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted. I added a couple of stitches since my dad wanted a bit larger a scarf, and used up 2 hanks of the Lorna’s. Size 8 Addis. Started it in late April–embarrassed to admit that!!
I also buckled down and finished a pair of socks using some Lion Brand Magic Stripes I’ve had in the stash for a loooooong time. I thought they’d knit up into some fun, funky colored socks that wear like iron, but instead they knit up into what I consider the FUGLIEST pair of socks I’ve ever encountered. They’ll presumably still wear like iron, though. What can I say? They were cheap. And they used up stash yarn. Bonus!
Anyway, here is a pic of the socks for chuckles:
