Here are some WIP's. Finished photos and details as they're done!

Richard's scarf

I can finally start to reveal some of my holiday knitting! Here's one for starters.

Richard's Scarf

A simple mistake rib scarf with lovely soft squishy yarn that made up into a very cozy scarf.

pattern: Mistake Rib, inspiration from this site
yarn: Filtes King Extra Stampato and Mission Falls 1824 Wool
colors: black with grey flecks and black
amount: almost 3 skeins of each (roughly 500 yds. total)
finished measurements: didn't measure -- maybe 8"x60"
needles: US 11 (8 mm)

This is a very easy knit -- just k2, p2 to the last 3 st., then k2, p1. Every row is the same so it's reversible. I held two strands together, one of each of the yarns. Very quick and easy, and it makes a great cozy scarf... I ended up loving it so much that I want to make a mistake rib scarf for myself! Lots of other projects to finish first, though.

More finished gifts soon!
