My knitting seat and my Great Granny's Rocking Chair. My dad refinished it when I was prego with my eldest. It warms my heart to sit and knit (or feed my nursling) in the same chair where I remember my "Chicky" Grandma knitting when I was a small person.
You see him eyeing that ball of yarn? He's in to the mischeifs already. There's nothing like a boy...
But onto the scarf. It's a self-shading ruffle scarf knit with Wisdom Yarns Limerick.
It's pretty easy, but also looks fancy schmancy when finished.
Cast on 20 sts.
Knit 5. Turn Knit to End. Turn Knit to End. Knit 5. Turn knit to end. Turn knit to end... You get the idea? An extra row of 5 stitches at each end makes some cute little ruffles. :)
Lace-weight Mohair Scarf. Also very easy. Cast on 70 stitches on size 9 needles. Knit until end of skein. Laceweight mohair is just so pretty that you can make even the most simple projects look all kinds of fancy! This skein is from Blue Ridge Yarns (Shadow Mini in Rainforest.)
Some of ma stash...
My most favorite local yarn store is closing shop so I am loading up while the gettin's good.
