The Scarf is Finished

Well, I did finally finish the scarf, so now I'll be able to start something different this next week. Here's the finished product:Nevermind that I'm in my pajamas. Never got out of them yesterday and quite enjoyed that. Here's a close-up of the scarf. I can't even begin to catch all the colors in there:I'm quite pleased with it, but doubt I'll be making another one like it. 1x1 ribbing looks great, but it drives me insane to do it for more than a few inches, much less 6-8 feet.

I also started some more fleece spinning. Carded up some of the fleece into some gray rolags and got to spinning after filing some grooves into the old spindle. It really needed the grooves, so hopefully it'll work better now. Even if it doesn't, I should have a new spindle to show you all for tomorrow, but in the meantime, here's the spinning progress:I also cast on one more pair of wrist warmers, this time for myself. They are for the LK2Tog knit-a-long on Ravelry for this month. It's out of the leftover Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in the Devon colorway.That's it for today. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Knit on...

Sorry Leah, I've inadvertently become a lurker! So I'll comment now to make up for it. ;) The scarf looks great- I'm addicted to those Noro scarves now! But I'm not crazy like you- mine are in worsted. ;) You sure do love those voodoo wristwarmers don't you? I might need to make some just to see what all the fuss is about.

It's not so much that I love the pattern, but it works well for something varigated like the Lorna's. Also it's so easy that I have a tendency to fall back to it when I need something knit up quickly. Thanks for commenting! :o)
