Mrs. F's Christmas Scarf - DONE!

Started Oct 5/09 Finished Oct 23/09

I don't have size 9 needles so I'm doing this pattern in size 10 needles. I casted on 15 stitches and modified the pattern because I don't have much yarn and rather have it longer then wider.

Needles: Size 10 straight

Yarn: Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in Fedora

Ms. J's Christmas Scarf - DONE!

Another Christmas gift scarf for the girls' teachers. Since I only have 75 yards, I decided to only cast on 14 stitches so the repeat in the middle is for 10x.

Green Scarf - DONE!

Started Sept 26/09 Finished Oct 4/09

Another Christmas gift. Rather then knit 3 scarves with the same pattern, I decided to knit 3 different patterns. This is just a 3 rows. I finished this while waiting at the ER for 6 hours. My oldest was sick and it took that long at the ER on Sunday!

Needles: Size 8 straight

Yarn: Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in Jalapeno

Christmas Scarf - DONE!

Started Sept 10/09 Finished Oct 1/09

This is a Christmas scarf not because of the color but because they will a gifts for one of my daughters' teacher. Don't have size 9 needles so doing this with size 10. This is an easy pattern but you can't knit back if you make a mistake. I've had to frog it and start again after the 2nd row of mistakes.

Sept 15/09 Had to frog this scarf 2 more times. The pattern is a 2 row repeat but with all the yarn overs, if you make a mistake there is no just knitting back or taking out a row or 2. You have to frog the whole thing and start over. Grrr!

Needles: Size 10 dpn

Yarn: Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in Pomegranate
