Drama for your Mama

We had drama on Sunday which contributed to my not posting on Sunday. So I'm posting on Tuesday!

First up: The Noro Striped Scarf is done!



The Particulars:

Pattern: Noro Striped Scarf

Yarn: 2 skeins Noro Kureyon, color 195. 2 skeins Noro Kureyon, color 92

Needles: US8s

Next: the cooler weather prompted me to knit another sweater for Sissy.

Pattern: Cowl and Howl set from Stitch n' Bitch -- minus the Cowl.

Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Bulky in Blue Boy and Kiwi -- about 1/4 skein of each.

Needles: US10s

Mods: I didn't make the sleeves and I made a shorter neck so it's more like a turtle neck instead of a cowl. Also, this one is a little shorter and snugger than than the red and black one -- which is a little on the baggy side. Using smaller needles and casting on fewer stitches made a sweater that fits just right!

Tony finished his first of the Camo socks.

I ripped the mitten and restarted it on US1s. The sizing is better. I still have a ways to go but hope to have them done-ish before the next knit night.

Later,

Eric

Great sweater. Now can you please convince my husband that our dog needs a little sweater (or a little pink polo) in the worst possible way?

Knit and fall back in it said...

That Sissy looks beautiful in her sweater, amd Tony's scarf looks great.

I didn't know you had a puppy! My Noro scarf will be done in a few days; I'm terribly excited.

Great sweater for Sissy, and I am so glad she is white again - not pink! And the Noro scarf is great too, I have it on my list.... Now I am making Noro mittens - EZ Miltred mittens in Noro. Amongst a lot of other things - I think I have to sort things out - one day...

I love the little doggy sweater (and the little doggy!). Great looking Noro scarf; am I the only one in Blogland who has not knit one?

Very nice Noro scarf. I just finished mine as well. Really glad to have that off the needles. Boring as heck, but a VERY nice looking scarf when it's done. Yours is much longer than mine. The sweater is nice too.
