Warm Fuzzies

This week, I've had a lot of warm, fuzzy moments. Saturday, I started a pair of socks for Hubs. After pouring over the few stitch patterns I felt comfortable tackling, I asked him for his input. To that he replied that he had no preference and for me to pick something I'd enjoy making and he'd wear them if I made them. Awww.

Monday night, I had to completely step outside my comfort zone and spoke my concerns in front of a bunch of people (details on this entry to my personal blog). Afterwards, I called my dad and told him about the situation to vent and get guidance. Dad told me that he's proud of me for taking the actions that I did. That really means a lot to me :)

Tonight, I have literal warm fuzzies. The DNA scarf is finished and blocked. Blocking it helped 100%; evened out some wonky areas and blended the cable and ribbed sections.

I love how this scarf turned out. It really stretched my abilities and was a great challenge. The Knitpicks Andean Treasure yarn really looks lovely knitted and is super soft. It was kind of splitty and a bit of a pain to fix mistakes though.

Next project up will be blowing the dust off Cozy and continuing on the Hub socks.

Wow! That scarf looks spectacular. Conrats on getting it finished.
Your hubby can't use anything wee sized.

Thanks! I'm happy with the way the DNA scarf turned out.

The socks are only temporarily wee-sized because they'll be huge and are taking me forever to knit. To put it into perspective, my Olympic socks were 58 stitches around, Hub's are 90 and are on smaller needles. I may finish these by next winter at this rate.
