Hey there crafters,

Just wanted to share some of my recent FOs. Okay, from the past few months...

Some Voodoo wristwarmers (knitty pattern), in black Brown Sheep LP worsted. I love this pattern, and these are nice and boy-appropriate. Gift for hubby, but I wear them more often.

More wristwarmers, this time in a lovely blue Manos that is much darker than it appears. (Actually, it's the same blue as the hat in the next pic.) Free pattern from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=62360.0. Very fun, and quite warm. Gift for a friend in chilly Boston.

A Kim's hat (pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts), in the same blue Manos. When it was very, very cold in January, I lined it with a bowling ball fleece I received in the Big Lebowski swap. It is, in a word, fabulous. And so warm! And this time, for me.

And finally, from December, a multidirectional scarf (i LOVE this pattern! free online somewhere, just google it). Made from Patons SWS, which I do like and wish it were cheaper. Yes, yes, I know it's "cheap" in the range of luxury yarns, but how much would it be to make a Danica from this?

Hope you enjoy. Keep posting your great pix, knitters and others!

Love the scarf. I know, isn't the SWS amazing? You can make a Danica with just about 3 balls (I used almost four but I like my scarves practically dragging on the floor). A little pricey, but SOOO worth it. I get compliments on it where ever I go, and its so much easier to knit than people think.

And the hat's adorable too! One of these days I'm going to have to pick up that book...

I just bought 3 balls of sws for a Danica from Michaels and it was 18 , i agree I think it's kind of a lot , but I think it would be worth it the scarf is super cute and fun to knit so I've heard.

Yeah Danica takes 3 balls of SWS...I've done 2 so far.....but...I'm loving yours!!!  I have 3 balls of natural navy and I think I might have to give this one a try!  So if I just google multidirectional scarf...I should get the link right?

Edit to add....

Yes!  Here is the link

I really, really love this!  Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the replies! i guess I didn't know that Danica only needed 3 balls of SWS...and since I used 3 balls for this very scarf, then I can certainly swing the price for another  Smiley

and thanks, krafty_kelly, for posting the link to the pattern. How anyone could do this scarf in Noro is beyond me. I tried a few inches in Noro a while ago and the itchiness was appalling! (sp?) SWS is so much nicer.

I used two balls and a little of a third and got to 65" after blocking. I did use a size 10 needle and not the 9 like the label recommends. I figured it would work better since I knit really tightly.
