It's getting looooong...

But it's not done yet. As you can see the scarf is coming along nicely and will be done shortly thus giving me a finish date weeks before my brother's bday. (YES!!)

What's next? I've had this single of Mission Falls 136 Merino Superwash for almost a year and have been unsure what to do with it. But I at last have plan. I'm making this little lovely into a baby hat for my cousin and his wife who are due in November. I like the gender neutral green for a baby, and its machine washable, so perfect! I still need to pick out a pattern though so let me know if you have any suggestions!

FO: Ubdulating Rib Socks!

I seem to be in a sock mood of late so when I finished my last pair I soon cast on another pair, and finished them just yesterday.

This is the Undulating Rib socks in A Piece of Vermont's wool/bamboo sock yarn. Unlike my last pair of socks I love this pattern and yarn combination. The bold rib pattern works well with the muted pinks, purples, and grays in this yarn. I often had to stop knitting just so that I could admire how pretty this is. Can anyone tell I am totally in love with these socks? Because I am. These are easily my favorite pair to date. These are also my fifth pair for myself which means I am only more pairs of socks away from my goal of having enough handknit socks for everyday of the week, awesome!

But alas I must take a break from working towards my goal. For one thing I'm out of sock yarn, but also I have other knitting that needs to get done. Like making this yarn into a scarf for my brother's birthday in October.

I had best get knitting :)
