Wool that won't felt?

Finally a pair of socks I can wear

Success at last. They fit great and are really comfortable. Unfotunately it is now too warm to wear wool socks. So on to the next pair. I'm having a really hard time finding good guy sock yarn.

Koolhaus Scarf?

Has anyone worked out a pattern for a scarf based on the Koolhaus Hat?

The socks are finished!!!

Well, I finished the second sock over 3 days - but I don't have lots of knitting time, so that worked out pretty well.

They were knit from Red Heart Kids "Bikini" on size 6 dpns.

Tree of Life Afghan #4- On the border...

So, I'm down to about the last 30 rows of the afghan (pix coming soon!) and pondering the border. Never one to do things the easy way, I have this idea of a garter stitched border...
