Ever since I finished Ken’s sweater, I’ve been drawn to my WIPs. I have way too many, and I’d like to finish some of them up. The one that’s been calling to me all week has been the gorgeous Dryad scarf by Jared Flood.
I started the Dryad Scarf back in July. When I picked it back up this weekend, I had about 3 repeats done of the cable pattern. I’m now just starting the 13th repeat. It’s just so addicting to work on! The cable chart is really easy to use. I probably could’ve ditched it a while ago, as I know now what’s going on and what everything should look like, but I’m tending to knit early in the morning and late at night. That means I’m prone to mistakes. So, for safety sake and because I love this scarf so much, I keep the chart handy.
I’m using Malabrigo worsted in Pollen, and the cables are just popping. I’d probably be done now if I didn’t pause and squish the yarn in my hands every now and then. I just love this scarf! I cannot wait to wear it the one day in Central Texas that it’s chilly enough for a scarf. (Yep, I’m going to be selfish. This scarf is mine!)
Well, can you believe it? It’s November! The sweater for the October 30 Day Sweater Challenge is over, and now it’s time to start NaNoWriMo for November. I’m a little overwhelmed because I also have a list of WIPs and projects I want to get started. I’m going to have to figure out a really good schedule so that I can get everything done.
What projects are you making for the holidays? Or are you, like me for most of my family, buying gifts?
