2009 is here
I'm nearly done with the Mini-Mochi scarf. By the way, the yarn is now available through Yarn Market and Jimmy Beans Wool One site was a few cents cheaper, but I didn't check shipping costs on either. This yarn is so very soft. The pattern is easy;
using two balls of yarn, pull from the outside of one and the inside of the other. I used a cable cast on and cast on 46 stitches. Slip the first stitch purlwise, then purl 1, knit one across. Complete two rows with the first ball of yarn then use the second ball for the next two rows. When you switch colors, allow the color you're dropping to lay to the left, pull up the yarn you're picking up slip the first stitch then using the new yarn purl the second stitch. This is a picture when it was less than half done, but the colors just contine to make an amazing scarf. It's currently about 4' long, and I think I have enough yarn to do another 6 inches or so.
May 2009 be kind to you all. I hope you're all busy knitting lots of wonderful projects.

Here and There Cables!
Hi All - here's my version on Here and There Cables in Tatamy Tweed Worsted (40% Cotton, 60% Acrylic), Oatmeal. I removed 1 repeat to make it a bit skinnier, but otherwise, used the pattern as written. It's a very easy pattern to memorize. It's thick and cushy. I made it for a very good friend for her Birthday!

Ene Almost Done
I'm through the second pass on Chart 3. Fortunately, this shawl gets smaller as she goes. The color in this picture is pretty true to the yarn color. It's a gift for Helen. I'm a little late on it. Though I do try to get thru at least two rows a night....most nights I make it.
I am finally enjoying knitting Ene. I was having a hard time with the center stitch, but finally got a handle on how it works on the row.
I hope to have this done in the next few weeks and blocked. I'll post pics here and on Ravelry when done.
Pattern: Ene, "Scarf Style: Innovative to Traditional, 31 Inspirational Styles to Knit and Crochet"
Yarn: Baruffa Cashwool, doubled
Needle Size: Too lazy to go look
Color: Same issue as above
