Autumn Scarf

Yes more knitting. I'm actually doing very little sewing lately as I've found knitting to be so much easier to pick-up-and-put-down. Plus it's fall and there's more to watch on TV so I can knit and watch. But I do have two quilting projects I will finish in November!

This scarf was knit with Koigu's KPPPM yarn and it's lovely to knit with. Plus Koigu comes in every color under the sun - from slightly varigated solids to tonal stripes to wild rainbows! Really, the prettiest part of a yarn store may be the Koigu section - it's a riot of color.
Here's a few skeins of Koigu, including the 2 that created this scarf:

The pattern is called Sock-it-to-me and is from the 101 Designer One-Skein Wonders book. Yes there are definitely some fluff and silly things in there but there is also a ton of good projects you'd actually make. Good book.

I got through this scarf in just two weeks! I was really pushing to finish it though since I wanted to wear it to our family portrait day last weekend. I hope it photographed well!

  1. Oh, that's beautiful! I like knitting too because I can do it anywhere and at any time.

  2. It's gorgeous! I love all those Koigu colorways!

  3. It's gorgeous! I wish I could knit!

  4. Your scarf is beautiful. I've not knit with Koigu yet. Right now I'm working on 2 big projects that I knit and knit and knit and never seem to get anywhere on!

  5. Thanks!

    2 skiens of Koigu make a great scarf and it's not a big commitment project. I don't think I'm quite up for that challenge, I thought my Baby Surprise Jacket was never-ending!
