Cashmere scarf in basketweave pattern   3/05
Very happy with the way this turned out, and love the drape of this fabric.  I may have to borrow it……..

Project:  LAST Christmas' scarf for my DH
Handspun cashmere/silk, which I purchased from MaryLynn at Indigo Moon Farm
This is a size 3 US needle.  After knitting a few rows I thought it needed an edging of some sort, but didn't like anything I tried, so I knit it with one extra selvedge stitch.  I do love the sheen this yarn has, and the way it defines the stitches.

Here's a little sachet, almost finished, made from handspun soysilk.  The pattern is knit in mitered squares, by Vicki Sever, published in the Summer 2005 issue of Interweave Knits.  This was my first modular knitting project, and it took me awhile to get the hang of it, but eventually I did.  Now I'm looking at my little oddballs in the stash with an eye to creating a little evening bag or a pretty little pouch. 

Bobble Edged Hat
Made 3 of these, 2 for Christmas gifts which didn't get photo ops, and this one for me, a non-hat wearer.  Somehow those edge bobbles make this hat more flattering.  Size 6 or 7 needle.  Handspun wool.
