now on the needles besoted scarf

since my Irish Hiking Scarf was such a success I thought I would try the "Besotted" pattern from the same source...Has anyone else done that one? I am using Queensland Katmandu Aran in a pretty grey-blue shade. I will post a picture when i get closer, maybe even start a knitalong for it if anyone else is interested. Happy St.Pattys Day by the way...

I can't finish my scarf

I left my scarf at my mother's. She lives 90 miles from me. I take the bus it takes 4 hours up and down. So I shall have to wait until I go back up there to get the scarf. I've been able to keep busy with other projects. I just want to finish this one since it is a gift.

Irish Hiking Scarf making progress using Cleckheaton

I have just joined the knitalong and have about 32" of Irish Hiking Scarf goodness done. I started the scarf last wednesday evening at my "knitting class". Its actually a gab-fest for a bunch of us knitting at different levels with a wonderful "teacher" Gunnes. I brought the scarf to Newport Rhode Island with me this weekend and did alot of knitting surrounded by the wonderful mansions of Newport and also got to eat a wonderful "Sticky Date Pudding" by a guest Irish Chef during the Irish Heritage celebration. Very appropriate I thought. I love the Cleckheaton Country 8-ply yarn I am using. Its color 1396 a pretty rasberry color. I will post a picture when the scarf is complete...

My yarn arrived

My yarn from KnitPicks arrived yesterday. It is very nice and soft. I have about 6 repeats finished and the scarf feels wonderful. The color is a very nice soft blue. Can't wait to finish.
