Two IHS for Christmas

I know this late for a post for Christmas but I was having difficulties posting last week. I completed two IHS for my son's teachers, they were knit in Knit Picks, Wool of the Andes, in Mist and Snickerdoodle. These were my first cable project and I quite enjoyed doing them even though at first cables have always made me a little nervous. Now not nervous at all. I just started another one in Knit Picks, ShineWorsted in Blush for a friend. I'm sure I will be making more of these too.

Second IHS Christmas Gift

I finished another scarf. This one is for my BIL for Christmas and is made with Patons Canadiana in either Dark Periwinkle or Dark Wedgewood, can't remember. I don't have the ball bands any more.

Merry Christmas and Happy Knitting!

SIL Christmas IHS

Finished an IHS for my SIL for Christmas. It's made with Patons Shetland Chunky Tweeds in Biscuit Tweed. Modified to a two-cabled scarf since it's a chunky yarn. I have another scarf finished for BIL, but it isn't blocked yet.

Happy knitting!

IHS #2

This last weekend I started my second ever IHS, using Plymouth Encore bulky.
Since the yarn is so thick, I modified the pattern to use only 2 cables instead of three. So far it's turning out great:

And with bulky yarn it is going quickly!

(This scarf is going to be for myself, too... yippee!)
