February knitting


There has been lots of knitting going around at the Swenson house.  February is prime knitting time.  It's dark early, cold and snowy... perfect knitting weather.
First up is this feather and fan scarf made with 2 alternating balls of liberty wool.  It makes this gorgeous stripe pattern without needing a bunch of different colors.  I'm so close to being done.  This one is for me!



I've made piles of mittens since Christmas.  These two pairs are also made with Liberty wool.  I used Susan B. Anderson's pattern found here... http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/waiting-for-winter-mittens--fingerless-mitts  It's such a great, easy pattern. 




Last of all is this feather and fan blanket made out of Amy Butler's wool and cotton.  It is the squishiest, softest blanket.  I started it on vacation in July and then didn't really work on it again until this month.  It is so close to being done.  I can't wait to cover up with it.


Happy knitting friends!
