Just a little something

I've been amiss in taking photos of finished items. Don't know exactly why, probably the winter doldrums which start around the end of October in the spot I call home. My daughter, A., had won a skein of Mountain Colors 4/8 wool. Since there were only 250 yards in the skein, the project had to be small. I found this pattern in the Fall 2005 issue and it fit the bill. After knitting the scarf, I had enough yarn left to knit a pair of wrist warmers. It's a nice little scarf to keep the neck warm since two banes in most Germans' lives are a cold neck and a draft. Add to that cold wrists, as far as I'm concerned. The project was knit on US Size 7 or for most of the rest of the world 4.5 mm needles. The wrist warmers are plain with a pattern of k3, slip 1, knit one round.
The spinning wheel belongs to A. I do not spin.
Knit on Merrily!
