On the needles


Pattern: St. Albans Valentine Cable Scarf
Yarn: Elann Highland Wool, red maple
Needles: 5 mm (US8)

Here's what I have on the needles -- my first project using my new Knit Picks Options Interchangeable needles! This scarf is for my SIL, knit on 5mm (US8) needles using Elann Highland Wool yarn (Ravlink here) in Red Maple, which is a gorgeous color in real life. The 5mm (US8) seems so large after knitting on 2.25 mm to 2.75 mm needles for socks & mitts.

Can't seem to get colour to appear true in photos. :-(

There is a wicked cool contest over here. Look at all these goodies you can win! Yarn. Needles. Patterns. And more! Go check it out.

I have that pattern printed out to make, just haven't started it yet. One of my favorites.

I love that scarf. And it is weird going from size 1 or 2 to a 7 or 8. Feels like you are knitting with giant logs!
