family knitting

Just a quick catch up on some knitting projects. First, a scarf for Jay. I think I've finally convinced him he can wear light gray (we're stuck in a black thing around this house...even gray counts as infusing colour into our wardrobes). I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease because Jay's beard tends to wreck more natural fibres, and hey, it's totally cheap and pretty nice to work with. Next, the great bag my Mom crocheted for me this Christmas. It's sitting there in the photo packed full of wool she found for me and I love how stretchy it is. It's a great pattern and she did a fantastic job. Inside it is also a needle holder from Honeycake Designs, a lovely gift from Jay who was following my "Buy Handmade" pledge. Then, straight from the mother/daughter telepathic zone, here is the bag I knit my Mom for Christmas. I used Araucania wool, lined it with black denim and used handles found at Knitomatic.

Click clack, click clack.

The cotton ease scarf looks great! And it's nice to see Jay's smiling face.
