Same pattern.  This scarf worked in the recommended Cascade 220 wool.  It isn't finished and hasn't been blocked, and already the lace pattern is more pronounced than in the version knit with Lamb's Pride.  This one will be infinitely more wearable than the first.

Teva Durham's Lace Leaf Scarf knitted with Lamb's Pride worsted.  I don't really recommend Lamb's Pride for this project because the mohair content sort of obscures the lacework.  Still, this was a fun, easy, and fairly fast project (about 1 hours start to finish, including the steam blocking, and I'm a sloooow knitter.)

3  Belt de Jour: Completed in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by RomBookLover on: May 13, 2005 03:28:51 PM
Absolutely nothing says "Check out my humongous hips and fat @ss!" like a bright yellow cable knit belt:

LOL   Grin

It was a pretty fun and easy project, though.

More wrist warmers in April ...

These were made with undyed Morehouse Merino and a size US 8 8" circ.  I have no idea why I thought I needed to make these, but they were pretty easy to knit.

I cowed and made two hats:

And, now you know why I don't like to make 'em -- I'm lousy at them!

The squares idea is a great one.  I can basically knit up a bunch of swatches, practice different stitches, then practice seaming as I sew them up into a scarf, afghan, God knows what.  Yeah, I like that idea! Thanks!

I hate, hate, hate, hate, hate hats!  Case(s) in point:

This one is two strands of Encore chunky held together and knit on US 13s.  My Goddaughter says that if I put a cord and tassel on the crown, she'll wear it.  Good thing, as it's way too small for an adult.

Use Wool Ease Thick and Quick and Fun Fur for this hideous thing.  I followed the Martha Stewart pattern for this one and even checked my gauge, still it came out very large.  My mother has a large head and she actually likes this one, so it's hers.  Of course, I think she likes it only because it's so @#$! cold outside, but ...  (Shrugs)

My personal thoughts?  That both are God awful.  They're slightly better than my first two attempts at hats (neither of which will even see daylight, let alone a camera) but still bad.  Done on a circ, dpns, straight needle, doesn't matter.  Hats elude me.

Sigh.   Undecided
