Holding Hands, Feeding Ducks

Lots of work Monday finishing up scarf number three for February. Yarn is Stitchjones Superwash Dyepot Worsted in Olive colorway. Pattern is Holding Hands, Feeding Ducks. Wow! It's very similar in color to the designer's version. I dropped down to a size 7 needle instead of the suggested 10. This got me a narrower scarf at only four inches wide but after blocking I have seventy-six inches in length. So more than long enough to wrap around the neck and tuck into a jacket. The scarf is intended for Christmas 2009 and I'm thinking my brother Scott.

Here it is:

I started a shawl for the month but don't have high hopes of finishing it this month for the Monthly Make Ahead group. ;-) (February is scarfs/shawls.) I'm using the yarn I won from Judy Becker's 'identify the tool' contest she had, its an Anne Schaefer yarn in the Toni Morrison colorway. I picked out the Woodland Shawl pattern so its "Toni's Walk Through the Woods" shawl.


  1. The scarf is really, really sweet! Love it.

  2. Thank you! Its nice to have simple knits sometimes that have great results.
