So I am in California conferencing with special collections librarians about all matters digital right now; but there is some knitting to report. Before I got to LA to attend my conference, we visited with family around these parts and I finished some knitting. It seemed like a perfect time to get some modeled shots, as it was 85 degrees. I can't fathom why it's so hard getting kids to model winter wear when it's hot out.
This scarf is for Little Sir. He picked out the wool from by spinning stash and help me prep it for spinning. He even popped his foot on top of mine a few times while I was treadling. He was very excited about this scarf until I finished it and asked him to model it. He said it was "too hot."
My niece, on the other hand, was very excited to strike a pose.
Which made Little Sir get all possesive about the scarf. I think he likes it. At least for today. Toddlers, they can be fickle.
Just a plain garter stitch scarf. The interesting thing here, I thought I'd learn to knit continental working on this scarf; but it turns out I am just as slow knitting one way as the other. So I think I will stay a thrower (and when knitting stranded, a picker...sigh). Details in the gallery.
