Came across this today as I was watching Graham Norton clips. :)
trying to knit hearing Adele!
I get some awesome emails from people all over the world with something of the same theme: they're now grown adults, with children of their own, still holding on to a teddy bear given to them when they were tots. Some are hidden in closets, some are proudly on display, and some have been heir loomed off to a younger generation who we all hope will cling to the little bear with love.
I have been a knitter and a part of this community (mainly on Facebook) for some time now, so I figured I could introduce myself shortly :)
And the Wyoming Winds have returned with more gusto than ever. Last week they swept into the Casper area with a small yet beautiful break Thursday morning. Then they blew back in and brought a bit of rain and snow with them Saturday night. One must love horizontal precipitation no matter it's make-up when living in Wyoming.

This was KAL and the only stipulation was to use Handmaiden fibre. I had a couple of skeins of silk and cashmere so I designed this scarf using the "Lily of the valley and Spruce" pattern from Estonia Knitting and I substituted beads for "nupps". I was going to add a edging border but had a major melt down over it lol. Maybe I will add it later.
I had a lot of fun making this. I have a friend who bought a new Kindle Fire but didn't get a case for it. So, I thought I'd make one for him. I used Peruvian Highland Wool, 4.5-5 sts per inch. I didn't take a picture of it before I sewed the bottom shut and blocked it, but it really did look like a sock, thus the name.
