What's going to happen in December

I wrote goals for November, but I think I didn't post them! I'll tell you now what they were:
  1. Finish the denim cardigan
  2. Finish one front of the Noro cardigan
  3. Finish a sock
So. I have sort of finished the denim cardigan. The body went into the wash yesterday, so it just needs sewing up. If I make that a December goal, I'll almost certainly meet it!

The others, no... Although I really want to start something new, I will put November's 2 and 3 as December's 2 and 3, after the cardi.

Oh, and in the middle of all this, I seem to have started something different! I was in the new Anthropologie store in town and saw some cute little scarves -- you know, the kind people's grandmothers knit for them in the 1960s, little bow-tie like things. I found this pattern on Ravelry.

It's clearly for another year's Anthropologie scarf, because this year they are garter stitch with a simple cable and bobble pattern going up the middle! However, I liked the texture of this one and am making one for Elaine, using a ball of Rowan 4-ply wool that was this year's "free gift" when I subscribed to the magazines, held together with some sparkly sock yarn I picked up recently.

The sparkles make it look like it's just dusted with snow! I think I have the colour called Acai. It looks better in real life -- neither the flash nor the dull morning light show it to advantage.

Shortly, though, we will have a completed scarf, which might even get modeled if I ask nicely. Stay tuned -- you might get 2 finished objects before you know it!


  1. That's pretty much the scarf I'm doing (twice), except in stockinette instead of garter. The divide/rib/rejoin part is fun! The middle is getting me down.

    But I stole the needle for it out of my other project, so I can't easily do a few rows of this and a few rows of that. Must finish garter scarf.

  2. Must check this out. Looks fast and fun.

  3. what a fun little bow tie scarf! can't wait to see the finished product!!
