Irish Hiking Scarf

Finished the Irish Hiking Scarf which will be a Christmas present for my wonderful hubby. Fortunately, I don't have to worry about him reading this!!

This was a nice, easy pattern made will double strands of Bucilla Mirage on size 8 needles. I have gotten so used to wool that this yarn seems almost slimey. It will probably be awhile before I use acrylic again... but it will definitely serve its purpose!

Second Pair Done!!!

Finally finished my Thuja socks!! They were done on size 4 circs with Artyarns Supermerino colorway 105. I love this color, I love doing socks on 2 circulars BUT my kitchener definitely needs some help! Oh well, try try again.... Fit is great. This pair was about 7.5 spi. I still want a heavier pair. Not sure if I should drop to a 2 or 3 needle with a worsted weight yarn. Spend a lot of time outside and regardless of the weather, wear my Birkies so warm socks are a must.
