November Finish

I finally finished these. Started Oct. 1 and finished Nov. 23. These are a Ram Club selection from earlier this year. The yarn is Verve from the Unique Sheep, in colors Summer Solstice and Winter Solstice. The pattern is Alp Hikers by Charles Voth.

I knit the size Small in width and XL in length. There were 300 yds of each color, and I have about 50 yds of the lighter color left.

Progress updates.
I now have one red sock finished. It's the SKA November Mystery Sock by Lisa Stichweh. The yarn is Handmaiden Casbah.

The other sock is one of my designs. The cable resembles chain link fence. The yarn is Plymouth happy Feet Dye for Me, dyed by my local yarn store Susan Yarns.

12m/12b/12p Midnight at the Oasis

The scarf is the pattern Renee's Lace Class Scarf, and was knit with some lost label merino yarn which I dyed using Wilton's Food Paste.

The scarf took exactly 400 yards, and sadly, is only 4 feet long. The scarf is part of a set which includes gloves.

Holiday 3 KAL

These gloves were knit from yarn which I dyed using Wilton's Food Paste. The gloves are part of a gift set, and go with the Midnight at the Oasis scarf I knit for the November 12m/12b/12p.
