Knitting, as promised

As I said in my last post, here is some knitting. Some FO's and a WIP!

Spinningfishwife sent me a link to a website with a pattern for a sock bookmark, so knowing my love for sox and my continued search for what to do with the odd bits of sock yarn, I just had to knit one!

I knitted the tiny sox and then crochet a chain to join them together.(yes the dreaded "C" word).

Here they are insitu in my current book "A breath of snow and ashes" by Diana Gabaldon

I have just finished knitting a scarf in Rowan Tapestry yarn, shade 171 rainbow. I really like the colours in this yarn, and it works really well (I think) with this short row pattern from "Scarves - a knitter's dozen".

However I did find that there was a problem with the yarn, it was really easy to tangle and get "stuck" together and had a tendency to do this when I was knitting!!! Has anyone else found this a problem?

This is my current WIP, scarf number 4 in my xmas knitting! It is being knitted in Lana Grossa Meilenweit 100 Multieffekt sock yarn. Yes I did say sock yarn!!!! I picked up a pattern for scarves knitted with Opal sock yarn when I was in Kelso a few weeks ago. There are 3 patterns, one done in rib, a simple wave lace pattern (looks like feather and fan!) and a frilly lace pattern (that's the one I'm doing). I'm not too sure about the colours, but it looks better in a scarf than it did in sox! I had started sox with it, but didn't like it so frogged it.

OK I'd better get going as I'm meeting Spinningfishwife for a BBQ in the next 30 mins or so and I still have to buy the burgers!

Those teeny tiny socks would be great for Christmas cards, decorations, small gifts with a little something inside.

I love the tapestry scarf, looks ace. I have a friend who's just started knitting and she came to me the other day with a little 'doughnut' fluffy thing around her yarn too. Not sure why it happens, but it's not just you and tapestry!

Been a busy lady haven't you - that's the first 'real life' knitted up tapestry I have seen and I really like the looks of it. And the second scarf with the wiggly edges looks very cool too!

Actually I REALLY like the wiggly scarf, any chance of being able to get hold of the pattern for me? :) Will pay yer!
