What's on the Needles?

I finished up a pair of big black socks for my oldest son but they aren't very photogenic. And then I started a project for me -

this is a long scarf called Strathcona and you can see the pattern here. The yarn is Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool and it feels so good. The scarf comes to a point at the center. You change the direction of the slant of the mesh stitch.

This picture captures the colors better. The mesh part is done in Citrine and the knit part is Dusty Blue. I love how they look together.

I should have this finished by the end of the weekend and then I have a Cladonia shawl I can't wait to start. I hope to have pics of it next Friday.

Well, I didn't wait long to spend my gift certificate from The Loopy Ewe. There were so many pretty yarns to choose from and I picked these beauties.

From the bottom to the top -the fallish colored yarn is Sokkusu and the colorway is Tree Frog. I do love Fall colors. The middle skein is Dream in Color Smooshy and the colorway is Dusky Aurora. And that top skein is Cascade Heritage - did you think I could pass up a good yellow yarn??? LOL - it is impossible! I don't have any definite plans for these skeins, although I'm thinking that yellow Cascade would be a lovely pair of lacy socks. I'll just have to wait and see what develops.

Have a great weekend-
happy stitching and knitting!
