Knitting ContentA few recently finished objects:
Child's Rainbow Scarf from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts . Two skeins of Noro Kureyon, size 9 needles. These were not the original shades in the book; I was at a yarn shop that carried Kureyon and took a wild guess. I'm very pleased with this; it does need a relaxing bath and some light blocking. I learned something about color with this project: sometimes you need colors in a project that you don't actually like to heighten the power of the other colors. Sounds like a good metaphor for ministry as well. I would happily do this pattern again as I was always fascinated by the change in colors, and I wonder if other stitch patterns would work.
Mostly Knit-Round Hat from Sally Melville's The Knit Stitch . Cascade 220. The beginnings of a Christmas present. Not a good photo, but I'm not a good hat wearer and the cats object to the wearing of clothing, so I've posed it on top of a Triscuit box.
