Some finished projects...

In my previous post, I said that I would spend some time finishing projects, and I did.

I have finished this scarf for my niece (she's really into green this season). I used Knit Picks Imagination in Frog Prince (this product line was a huge hit and was sold out very quickly. I was lucky enough to place my order on time and have two skeins of several colours). It is a simple k8 p8 basket weave stitch.

I have also finished a pair of socks (of course I would go back to knitting socks). I found this yarn during one of my summer day trips. The yarn is by Titan Wool and it's called Pays (country in french). Larisa at Headwater Wool shared her Russian Knitting technique with me. She even wrote a book about it. Not only is she very busy at the shop, but she also has an alpaca farm and sells her yarn at the shop. She also gives knitting lessons (her website has a few tutorials on it).

I have also finished another scarf for myself in this basket waeve stitch. I haven't blocked it, and I think I won't either, as I love the raised effect it creates. The yarn I used for this was from Cherry Tree Hill and the colour is Spanish Moss. I just love it!

Here are two more scarves I completed, but I can't remember the yarn I used.
