Lacy Knitted Scarves

The weather has been all wintery of late. Wintery weather makes me want to close the blinds, put the fire on, snuggle into the big squashy sofa I have, amongst all my many scatter cushions, and stay there till bedtime.
Every winter the knitting needles come out, but being an impatient person I need to make things that give me instant gratification, so jumpers and blankets just don't do it for me.

Last year was a 'Glove' year, well a Wrist Warmer year really - gloves with no fingers, nice and easy.

This year is a scarf year, I have found a wonderful drop stitch pattern which means it knits up really really quickly. I rooted through last years stash and used a few balls and came up with these :)

This is quite a short one as one ball wasn't quite enough, but I didn't have another ball.

It has my new "Opus Moon - hand made by Sooz" tag sewn into the corner.

The next one was the most gorgeous multi-coloured wool, it's so soft and fluffy, you just want to rub your face on it :)

Then I found this amazing ribbon yarn in my box, it knits up so elegantly, it's has turned out more of a dress scarf than an outdoor, windy weather scarf.

And lastly a gorgeous ultra fluffy pale pink wool, which is just baby soft and worked up so lacy and delicate, I know just the person to give this to for Christmas.

I have just taken delivery of another 82 balls, so expect to be shown a few more :)
