Scarf and Sky Socks

There has been some knitting. Simple, mindless knitting with soothing soft yarn reminding me how knitting can be a pleasure.

First I finished the scarf with the gift yarn from Brother Dave's Karen.

Pattern: One-Row Scarf by the Yarn Harlot.

Yarn: Cherry Hill Alpaca Handspun. DK weight.

Color: Mystic.

Needles: US #8.

The Yarn Harlot designed this scarf for handspun. It's easy. The texture accentuates the softness of the yarn and there's no curling at the edges.

I declare it to be perfect scarf pattern and I'll be using it again and again.

Pattern: Basic cuff down sock on 60 stitches. k5p1 ribbing.

Yarn: Stalwart Sock from Slackford Studio. 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon 4 Ply Fingering Weight Sock Yarn.

Color: Skydive.

Needles: Options 2.50mm circulars.

Gauge: 8 stitches/inch, 10 rows/inch in stockinette.

The simple design of the scarf pattern really allows the yarn to be the star. She will love it.

I love that scarf pattern too. It looks great made with any yarn.

How did you get the socks to match so well? They're lovely!

Your new scarf looks soft and warm. It is my next project if I ever finish the men's pullover I am knitting.

That looks like a yarn that really shines close up. I want to pet it!

I love that pattern!! I've make a couple of scarves using The Yarn Harlots pattern and they always come out nice. Great scarf!

That scarf looks like fun, and I'm going to try it. Thanks for the link. How many yards of yarn in yours? Love the socks, too!
