Guess I Can Still Knit!

I've been finishing things! Some things I just got tired of working on so decided they were done and some were really fun. Here's the run down.

1st is the Montego Bay Scarf
Yarn:Handmaiden Sea Silk color Ocean
Needles: size 8 Brittany

I tried this scarf a few years ago but because it's such an easy knit, I kept messing up cause I could never figure out what row I was on. It's only a 4 row pattern! I think alot before I actually start doing, and I thought about this one so much it about drove me crazy till I came up with a plan! So, it's moving right along, although I usually only work on it when I'm waiting.

This has to be my all time favorite knit! It's beautiful and it was interesting and a very relaxing knit. Took me 9 days! I will definitely be making another one.

Pattern: Hanami
Yarn: Cleckheaton Country Silk DK
Needles:Knit Picks 8 circular

This is the Springtime Bandit Shawl that I've named Brittany's Birthday Shawl. It's for The Baby Girls Best friend/Roommate whose birthday is the same day I will arrive for a week long visit.

This is my Lamb friend Louie. :o) He's my biggest in my collection of sheep. He's my new model.

5th Avenue Infinity Scarf/Wrap/Cowl
Yarn: James C Brett Marble Chunky
Needles: 10 1/2 Brittany

I have to say, I was never too fond of acrylic yarn once I found all the yummy yarn in LYS's, but this is a great yarn for someone who can't handle wool. I love it and I'm so glad I bought that 1st ball. If you see it, try it, it's great for just about anything. Comes in worsted too. BTB wore this while painting my friends deck in Atlanta, where it just happened to be in the teens (11 that morning) while he was scraping. I was working on this on the ride up and had finished it when he asked if I had something he could put around his neck. He had this, a hat I made while we were there and the mitts that I had made myself several years before and the deck is all scraped, painted and looking wonderful!

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter and enjoy the beautiful spring weather. I'm kind of stuck in the house till the pollen goes away. Oh my is that stuff bad here this year. Looks like someone went around the neighborhood sprinkling green flour all over everything! UH!

Happy Knitting!

I'm glad to hear that someone else had problems with Montego Bay. I'm sorry it was YOU, but I'm still glad to hear it. I thought it was just me. All these knits look lovely.

You´ve been very busy and I especially love the Hanami Pattern, looks so delicate and pretty.
I haven´t known the birthday of Miss Read, frankly said I haven´t even known she is still alive. I always thought she was already retired at about 1960. This is maybe because she is not as popular here as she certainly is in the english speaking countries, which is indeed very sad because I love her writing so much and would wish everybody should read one of her books.
Have a lovely time, enjoy your knitting and many thanks for your comment,
with my best wishes,

I have just noticed that you might think I am talking (or written in my comment here lately) lots of nonsence. JUst now I realized that I have understood someones blogger profile wrong. (Related to Miss Reads birthday and so on). Oh my, I am really getting old and the internet still is a sealed book for me. I am so sorry, please take my excuse for my silliness.
With best wishes,
