Lacy Waves scarf

Whew, I finished Jodi's birthday present and it's still two days until her birthday. She may not get the scarf in time to wear it on her birthday, but I can show pictures.

The pattern was fairly simple,but it took me until the second skein of yarn to actually get it set in my mind so I could knit without have to think about every stitch. I like the way it looks, and the yarn was fairly easy to work.

Now, back to my socks.

A new month

It's a new month and I just can't decide on a knitting project. I need to start a new pair of socks, but all the ones I've tried are just a little too hard for my skill set. I also need to make a scarf for a birthday present, and I've started over at least five times. Why oh why am I so indecisive about this.

Yesterday I went to Wildfibers and got the prettiest yarn. It has a very nice texture and is called Panda Silk, with 52% bamboo and 5% silk, shouldn't it be called Panda Bamboo?
