5 FO's for my chilly family members!
Hi, everyone!

I made these five scarves for my family, during these weeks when it's too cold to go out. It took a while, but about a week ago I finally finished the last one- the light blue one!

So, here's all I did:

1) Irish hiking scarf, using Wool-Ease worsted weight in Forest Green Heather (so pretty!) and US 8 needles. It's 4 feet long.

2) Basketweave scarf, using Homespun yarn in "Cyprus" (now discontinued-- ), and US 10 needles. All I did was cast on 21 sts, k3, p3, to the end, and do that for three rows. Then, three rows later, I would do p3, k3, to the end for another three rows. It's about 3 1/2 feet long.

3) Garter stitch scarf. I used Wool-Ease Thick and Quick in Charcoal Grey, and US 11 needles. I just casted on 15 (maybe 16; I don't remember) and did the whole thing in garter stitch. It's a little over 3 feet long.

4) Then I did one that's white (Red Heart) and navy blue (Caron Perfect Match in midnight blue), with two strands of worsted weight held together on US 10 needles. I casted on 14, and did 2x2 ribbing all the way through. This one's about 4 feet long. I like the variegated effect.

5) Last but not least, I did this one with Patons Divine yarn in Halo Blue. I did the same ribbing pattern as the white and navy one. It's 6 feet long.

Anyway, here are some pics:

Thank you!
The Irish hiking scarf was my second cabling project, and I loved working on it! It took a little longer than most scarves do, but I had fun with it.
Does anyone else find it really hard to work with Patons Divine yarn?? It was really hard for me to work with, and made me Especially becausemy hands tend to be sweaty ALL the TIME (even when I'm cold ), and all the fibers come off and stick to my hands. Hmph. But it does look pretty when it's finished.
Well, thanks again for the nice comments.
By the way, Jillle, I like that picture of the dog, too! Wish I could have one , but I'm allergic to dogs...
