It's scarf time

Hey guys..

It has been quite a while since I posted up on here...so I thought I would show you all what I have been working on.

These are two scarfs that I finished up late this fall for me and my boyfriend Brandon. We have had an unseasonably warm winter so far...but the cold finally hit today and I was able to venture out in my new alpaca scarf and loved every warm cuddly minute of it. One woman at the bank stoped me and commented on how nice my scarf was and wondered where I had gotten it...she didn't believe me at first that I had made it...but we chatted for a while and she just thought it was great.

My dogs love to cuddle up in my knitting so I thought they would wonderful models (my next project is going to be a sweater for Snow so she can have something knit all to herself)...so here they are...

The scarf I knitting up for me is being modeled by Snow...it is just k2p2 ribbing all the way up in Misty Baby Alpaca Chocolate Carmel and the stripes are done in the Toffee Cream color

Brandon's scarf is being modeled by Teak...and it is also k2p2 ribbing...but knit in alternating stripes of Rowan Natural Silk Aran (light blue and black)

Well that is it from out here in Virginia...Hope all is well out there in knitting land...take care boys!

Quick Question

Hey guys....I have a quick question that I don't know if there is a quick answer for...

I was just given a ton of yarn from my uncle that he is getting rid of. There are some gorgeous colors and I am really excited to start playing around with them. But none of them have labels...I know that some of them are hand spun and dyed....

Is there a way to tell what materials they are made of...i.e. wool, alpaka, etc....? Or is this something you learn over time with feeling them all before and just knowing?

Thanks!

Finally Finished

Hey fellas....a couple of you wanted to see what I was working on so here it is....I just finished it up last night and I am pretty proud of it...being one of the first projects that I have done. It is a scarf for my mother and I think she is really going to like it! It took me about 4 weeks to finish it off (I don't know how you guys finish your projects so fast....it seems to take me forever) Oh well....

Well I hope you like...

By the way....I made my boyfriend model it for a picture last night...hence the sleepy eyes and hair...hahaha
