My DD is thrilled with her new scarf. The pattern is called "My So Called Scarf". I used a beautiful Malabrigo yarn colorway Saphire Magenta. The variegation of this yarn is the perfect partner to this scarf pattern. I only used one skein. I think the size is just right for my DD. I did not add any fringe. The scarf doesn't need it. Check out the close up of the stitches. Pretty Cool!!
As I was finishing her scarf I knew I needed to make my DD something warm for her head. She's not a big hat person so after a posting from Wool Windings I decided to knit her a Calorimetry.
I cast on 98 stitches and did 15 repeats of row 5. Calorimetry fits her really well. For the final touch I found a vintage button from my Great Grandma's button tin. I have to admitt I love the pattern. It's pretty quick. I started knitting one for myself last night. I'm about half done with it. I can't wait to raid the button tin again!!
