Christmas Knitting 10-09-08
1. Red Scarf Project: Irish Hiking Scarf 2. Twelly's Socks 3. Feathers Wimple 4. Mrs Twelly's Socks 5. Brotherly Love Socks 6. Brotherly Love Scarf

Red Scarf Project: Irish Hiking Scarf 1. I'm using Vanna's Choice 100% acrylic yarn in Cranberry to knit the Red Scarf Project scarf. Its put out by Lion's Brand. I'm pleasantly surprised that this acrylic yarn is soooo soft. I'm buying more of it especially since I could win $1000 in a contest on the Vanna's Choice website(which goes live on October 10th). Lion's Brand is sponsoring a yarn contest at Michaels stores beginning October 12, 2008 where the grand prize will be $1,000 and an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles to meet Vanna White and be part of the audience of Wheel of Fortune. The contest ends on February 1, 2009.

Twelly Socks 2. I'm knitting Twelly's Socks for my scrabble buddy in Dream in Color Smooshy Black Parade. The pattern is Charlene Schurch's Garter Rib.

Feathers Wimple 3. I'm knitting the Wavy Feathers Wimple for a friend. The yarn is Fearless Fibers Laceweight %100 merino in Antique Rose. This seems like it'll be a quick knit. I'm using leftover orange sock as placement markers.

Breast Cancer Awareness Socks: Mrs Twelly's Socks 4. I'm knitting Mrs Twelly's Socks(my scrabble buddies wife) for breast cancer awareness month. She's recovering from breast cancer surgery. The yarn is Dream in Color Smooshy Cool Fire and pattern is Schurch's waterfall lace rib.

Brotherly Love Socks.. a modification of the Irish Hiking Scarf pattern 5. I'm modifying the Irish Hiking Scarf to make my older brother a pair of socks. The yarn is Dream in Color Smooshy November Muse.

Brotherly Love Scarf: Irish Hiking Scarf 6. I've fallen in love with the Irish Hiking Scarf pattern. Its easy and beautiful. I'm making this scarf for my lil brother. The yarn is Plymouth's Encore in Deep Forest.

WOW!! You rock! I only have 2 projects going and I'm struggling to get them done. I love that cranberry Vanna yarn too. I buy her yarn pretty often because it knits up quick and washes really well.

I love the scarf! It's on my list of things to make myself. I found out about the red scarf project too late to do one for this year (I'm slow!) but I am definitely going to make one next year.

Have a great weekend!
