I did it! I completed the two projects that I mentioned on Wednesday. First we have the Miss Babs socks. They are knit with Miss Babs Yummy sock yarn in the Nell colorway. The yarn was a bit heavier than what I usually use so I cast on 60 sts and then followed the pattern in my head. They are going to be very warm and I can already tell you they are very soft and comfy. Second we have the Quick & Easy scarf from the Dale of Norway kit I won from Coveted Yarn. It is knit with Ara bulky yarn in color 23063. When looking for a link to this yarn I did discover that it has been discontinued. I followed the directions for the scarf as written though I did cut the fringe before I completed the scarf so I could use every inch of the yarn.To be quite honest I’m glad the scarf is done. I wasn’t thrilled with the yarn. It is soft but it is also a thick and thin yarn, think fingering to bulky, and when knitting it there are spots on the scarf where thin yarn meets thin yarn and thick yarn meets thick yarn. This drove me crazy! I am a person who likes nice neat even stitches. This is NOT that. I did enjoy it for what it was though, a quick and easy project.
