Finished Cleaning = More Knitting

I love how having a clean house motivates me to finish up knitting projects. I still need to fix the Clapotis, but in the meanwhile I got some other things off the needles. They aren't FO's because I still need to weave in ends, wash and block, but I couldn't wait to share.

First is One Row of Somebody Else's Handspun Scarf based off of the One Row Handspun Scarf by the Yarn Harlot. (Ravelry). Its been my mindless TV knitting and I didn't take any pictures since I decided it would be a good plane project. I made it out of 80/20 alpaca/wool blend from the Illinois Green Pastures Collection. (Ravelry). It was pretty soft, but not as soft as some other wool, however it knit up into a dense fabric. It is going to be really warm - too bad I won't get to keep it. I realized that it would look great on my Dad. I hope he likes it.


The other one is the Storm Water Scarf. (Ravelry) I've been working on this one for awhile -- usually on the train. It is Handmaiden Sea Silk (Ravelry) - It was interesting to knit with, but I couldn't see knitting a huge shawl out of it.




I like how the end is making little points -- do you think I should block it straight or accentuate the points?

Definitely show off the points. I really like that scarf!

The thrill of Sea Silk (and the justification for the expense) is how nice it is to knit in hot weather. You just wouldn't get the whole Sea Silk gestalt knitting a Sea Silk scarf in the fall. Looks very pretty, though.
