The 400 Yard Scarf

 is all done and off the needles.

The yarn is such an amazing tweed,

it is six feet long, washing and blocking will all be done today.

 Next up, a Donnie hat...

with this soft, luscious alpaca yarn.
The color is a shade of green, one I don't usually work with,
but it is really pretty,
it is for one of my nieces boyfriends.

The needles have been very busy, as I started the Donnie Hat
last night. The hubs commented on the process of knitting,
he said he is amazed at how tedious it is,
I disagree!
Then he asked me to knit him a scarf,
I almost cried I was so happy.
I think this 400 yard scarf will look amazing on him!!
And how convenient, his birthday is Thanksgiving Day!!

  1. It is a beautiful scarf Debbie and I love it. The new yarn looks very nice and I also love your little snowman. Have a great day :)

  2. Gorgeous scarf! Love the color and texture of it! And this alpaca looks so good! It will make a great and warm hat!

  3. It looks great! I knit a Dr. Who scarf a couple of years ago. It sure felt like a 400 yard scarf.

  4. Hello Debbie, the scarf is lovely. I think your hubby will love it too. The new alpaca yarn will make a pretty hat. Happy Birthday to your hubby! Enjoy your day!

  5. The yarn is so soft--I can almost feel it as it slips through my fingers.
    I just finished a hat with my first pair of Bamboo Circular needles.
    Oh my! I love the creamy feel of them too. I can see more sizes in my future.

  6. Whoo hoo. Well done.

    Thinking good thoughts for you and he upcoming hat.
