Festive Red and Gray
The mailman just delivered a huge order of yarn at my doorstep, so I've been knitting and crocheting non-stop this week. And now that I'm finally done with all of my Christmas knitting, I can start making stuff for myself again. It's exciting! And strange.
I'm not sure how the idea popped into my head, but I've been dreaming about a red and gray wool knit scarf for a few weeks now. I'm not sure if I'll be able to translate the idea I have in my mind to reality, but it shouldn't be that complicated. It's just that the scarf in my mind doesn't specify whether it's garter stitch or stockinette, thin or wide, short or long. So I'm just going along with whatever feels right. Right now that means a thin and long scarf with 1x1 ribbing. The color-change edge is complicated, but maybe nobody will notice.
I also finished another (yes, another) Autumn in a really pretty brass color. I love how this one turned out, and I have enough yarn for matching mittens or a scarf.
