WIP's Feather and Fan Scarf and Queen of Diamond Gloves
Dad and I are making 18 scarves for Christmas. We bought KnitPicks Bare Fingering Weight and I have been dyeing it it my crockpots. Feather and Fan scarves for the women (6 total) and 8 scarves for the men a basic stockinette with garter stitch borders. We found the simpler the pattern the better it shows off the variations in the yarn. I have one finished Feather and Fan, but dad has it right now, hehe. I'll post it when I get it back. He has done a couple scarves for the men, that'll be my next project after I get this Feather and Fan done. The second pic shows some of the blue yarn I have dyed.




And here is a pic of the Queen of Daimond Gloves from KnitPicks that I am working on for the Challenge of the Month! I'm close to being done with the first glove. Hope you like it! :D It is done in KnitPicks Essential. Sorry the pic is a little blurry.

It sounds like you and your dad have a great project going together. Scarves all around....the neck. What fun to dye the yarn and make all those scarves together. I think I would have picked sport weight at least, to save on stitches. LOL Lazy me.

The gloves look like they are coming along nicely.

Doh! I forgot to say that we are double stranding the scarves! So pretty much worsted weight, and using size 10's so the knitted fabric is nice and soft. Its been a huge, but fun project, hehe!

Wow, your colors are so vivid! Just gorgeous yarn, and I love the scarf pattern. You're so lucky to be able to work on a project like that with your dad. Enjoy!
