Eye Candy, I hope

Well, it's a bit late, but I've finally blocked the Kalendar Scarf I knit from December 1 through December 25, 2009. For those who have short memories like me, this was the annual Advent Calendar Knit-Along from the Swedish web site The scarf was originally knit with Musk Ox yarn. The pattern is no longer free, but if you wait until December 1, you can always download the daily patterns for the 2010 sampler. I knit this scarf with one skein of Wisdom's Poems Sock yarn. I would suggest never to knit anything with this yarn if you have either a short-haired cat or dog in the house. We, of course, have both. The yarn, a single ply yarn, attracts short stubby hair from a mile away, yet alone the critters running around in the house. Also I think the name "sock yarn" is a misnomer. I would not knit socks with it since the thickness is slightly inconsistent. So here are finally the photos. Thanks to my physical therapy and my TENS unit it is easier to do blocking and taking photos.

Knit on merrily!


  1. Hello!

    I do like the colour of it though! Sad that it is such a "hair magnet".... Beautiful work!

  2. Hello Renate,

    thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such an encouraging comment! I know that she's fine during the day, but after spending almost two years with her at home, it needs a bit of adjustment for both of us. I'm getting there, it was much easier today.

    Lovely knitting - definitely "knit on"!!

    (Oh, and I lived in Karlsruhe, BW before we left Germany!)
