A Finished Object at last !

Well, this one was a quick and fun knit once I actually got around to it. I finished it this afternoon and am really pleased with it - it is so soft and fluffy ! The pattern is Colinette's Daisy scarf from the Artyfacts booklet. The yarn is Fandango in the Velvet Plum colourway - it only took one skein . I made two of these as Christmas presents last year and liked them so much that I wanted one for myself. It took me a while, but I will definitely be wearing this one a lot. I love it ! I have also made this pattern in the Colinette yarn Point Five which works up very differently but still looks great. This is an inexpensive project s I can see myself making more of these in different colours.

Not much progress on the socks today but I guess one finished item in a day is fairly satisfying. I am hoping to finish my Rowan Cork jacket tomorrow. I had run out of yarn half way through the belt and had to order another. Luckily, the wonderful Janette from Janettes Rare Yarns was able to find a ball for me. She is incredibly helpful and has a store full of bargains.
