FOs............feels good to finish something....

Firstly I finished the Vogue Silver anniversary Flower Scarf by Nicky Epstein. Because I used Aran weight silk instead of DK I adapted the pattern accordingly and used a single row of larger flowers instead of a 'ladder effect' of flowers as desribed in the magazine. It makes for a lovely soft but weighty scarf.




I finally finished these little socks for my little'un, before the first one was too small. Mind you leaving the second one for a few months meant there was a slight difference in how they turned out, but he loves them. They are knitted in the leftover yarn from a pair for my SiL in Little Lola from Woolly Workshop.

Oh, the scarf turned out gorgeous - I love it. I think I may have to make one for myself - is there time before Ally Pally? x

The scarf looks lovely Gilraen! I really like the flashes of red/pink as they lift the whole thing. And your tiny socks are too cute.

PS: Yarn ordered and will be despatched in a week or so, if I can part with it ;) Thanks again for helping me out. I really appreciate it.
