Annemary's Birthday Scarf and others
This is part of my sister's birthday present. As soon as I can pry the cat out of the box, I'll get it ready to mail to her.
Found the yarn at the "Yarn Garden" in Annapolis.
Pattern "Flying Vee" by Iris Schreier in Exquisite Little Knits at the Library
I liked the pattern so much that I made two more. The green one uses Lamb's Pride Wool and the pink one is a hand dyed merino I got at the big knitting show in Baltimore.
The pink and green scarf is a little too bold for my sister's taste but it was fun to make. Called the "Stacked Wedge" scarf from Lynne Barr's book "Knitting New Scarves.". Made out of Cascade 200 yarn. A friend's 13 yr. old daughter loved the scarf pattern but wasn't too fond of the hot pink and kelly green so I'm making hers in baby blue and white. Picture to come soon.
This is just a diagonal scarf. Made out of Merino hand dyed yarn.
Pattern is at this web site.http://cris-craft.blogspot.com/2007/01/diagonal-scarf-materials-and-equipment.html
