First, a scarf for me, that is taller than me. 2×2 rib knit by alternating two Noro Silk Garden colourways (252&225) on 4.5 mm needles. Soaked then hung to get the length; before hanging, the scarf measured 5’6″. I haven’t measured the finished length…all I know is I’m 5’4″(ish) and it’s way taller than me, which is FANTASTIC! Oh, and for those of you who knew I had pink hair, it’s still there, it’s just been over-dyed with henna so it’s a little more subtle.
And a couple of shots of the latest sweater I knit for work. It’s going to go onto 1920 Street, I don’t remember what yarn it is (but I got a bag of it for cheap at Salvation Army), and it was knit on 4.5 mm needles for the body and 4.0 mm needles for the trim. 100% wool. The pattern is called “Patterned Vest” by Deborah Newton, number 26 in Vogue Knitting’s Fall 2005.
