Scarf #8

I promised pics of my Dulaan scarf project, so here they are:

I am using Lion Brand wool, in Navy Blue. I am nearing the end of the first skein, and, silly me, I don't have any more of that yarn! So a run to the Hobby Lobby where I bought it is in order. I'm kinda nervous that there won't be any left, because last year around this time, they had no blues at all left in their stock. I bought mine about 60 days ago, when they just got it in....I hope there's some left. I need probably 2 more balls to make a scarf of any decent length, and another ball for a hat to match....Hmmmm. I'll be lucky if there's any more in the store.

I had a nice weekend, got some cleaning and organizing done, though not as much as I'd hoped, got to visit at a neighborhood block party (of course I brought my knitting!) and knit through the Bears game where they duked it out with the Packers, and in the last minute of the game scored the winning touchdown! Woo hoo, go Bears!

Ninety degrees outside yesterday--you can bet I didn't step foot out my door. Thank you Lord for AC!

Here are pics of the reversible cable scarf in progress:

I set this aside as its girly colorway makes it not a priority at this time when I'm trying to make 4 bros, my dad, my grampa, my husband and my son all scarves for Xmas. So "reversible" is sitting on the sidelines. I photographed it on my new quilt I got through Ebay for $25! I washed it and hung it on the clothesline to dry a couple weekends ago, and it is my favorite throw on the sofa right now! Crisp and cool cotton, sigh!
