What have I been up to?

Opal Sock Yarn from Hell

This is the Opal sock yarn from hell. Truly. I spent two evenings untangeling the spew from the center of the ball into these.

Why two balls? There was a big knot in the middle of the yarn that needed to be cut. I didn't want it ending up in my sock. In case you are curious about what the spew looked like, take a look at my previous post. I am hoping that things will go smoothly now. This set of socks is proving to be a challenge...

Rowan Scarf

I was so pleased to receive my Rowan giftie for joining Rowan International Knits this year that I immediately cast on and started knitting away. This year they are giving away the Rowan Froth Scarf in the lovely Kid Silk Haze. While I was intrigued with the beautiful purple yarn that was one of the color selections, I thought I might get more use out of the black.

This was a fast and fun pattern to knit, except for the picking up and binding off business around the edges. But, the final ruffley edge was well worth it. I wasn't sure how this yarn would be to work with as I am in a "I hate novelty yarns" phase, but it was wonderful.
