Irish Hiking Scarf: Day One


Irish Hiking Scarf with one evening's worth of knitting


My massive yarn order from Knitpicks.com arrived Thursday. Let me tell you just how wonderful of a sight it was to find my mailbox so shoved full of wool that it wouldn't close properly :) Within minutes, I cast on the Irish Hiking Scarf for my Hubs.

I watching the pattern progress, but I have learned that its not good lunchtime knitting for me. Bit too difficult for me to knit, eat, talk, and help a fellow knitter out all at the same time.

I have found that the pattern is very addictive. Before getting my Knitpicks order, I knitted three ipod socks! Hello, my name is Christina, and I'm a cable addict!

IHS Stats: Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in Mist, using US #7 needles by Brittany, one skein of five knitted as of Saturday night.

WOW!! That looks totally awesome. I love the color too. Did you let the hubby pick the color or did you?

Hubs gave me some color ranges, I picked the shade of grey based off availability in the color I'm using. I was going for, anything but black yarn. Nothing quite shows dog fur as badly as black yarn >.<
