i finished something today! i started it last year ! this is an 80" ribby cabled scarf from this free online pattern. i used two hanks of misti alpaca chunky on size 10.5 needles. it's long, it's heavy, it's soft, and it's beautiful ! is this a christmas gift? i don't know .... 'cause i did start it last year, with only myself in mind. hmmm .....

it was another wonderful knitting sunday at jackie's. she couldn't knit all day today, because of dancing.


oh! and this is the shot of the hippie and jackie ... i think something has gone awry with his knitting.....


ps. brrr ! i think it's about 57* in here ... because, my doors are open, and that's the outside temp, and it hasn't really been warm inside here since the last time it was warm outside here ....

The scarf is pretty cool. Maybe I'll be a copy cat and start a scarf like that too.

hey norma, it's not terribly wide, as it's only 20 sts wide, and ribbed ... so, i'd say about 3.5" wide? i'm being lame and trying to visualize it, because it's stuffed into a bag in the bedroom right now, and if i get up to go and actually measure it, i might knock over my glass of wine. ... and that's a no no.
