Sara's April Recap.

April has totally gotten away from me. I did get some knitting done, but after a trip to the yarn store, my knitting got side-tracked from what was on my list. This is what I was planning on knitting:

April List:
1. Finish Socks, for me just because; 1.5 down, .5 to go
2. My So Called Scarf, xmas gift box.
3. More washcloths, gift box
4. Dashing, Brian, xmas

And here's what I actually knit:

1. Finish Socks, for me just because; DONE
2. My So Called Scarf, xmas gift box, WIP
3. Fetching (again), gift box, DONE
4. Dashing, Brian, xmas, DONE
5. Tam A, Mom, DONE
6. Ribbed Hat, Ken, WIP

Twisted Rib Socks
Yarn: Meilenweit Magico

My So Called Scarf
Yarn: Alpaca Soft, Knit Picks Gossamer; held together

Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca
Note: I remember a post way back with someone having trouble with the bind off curling. I've found if you block it out, it turns out lovely and doesn't curl.

Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca, held double

Tam A
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca, Noro Silk Garden.
Note: My first fair isle project!! Tons of fun and knit up pretty quickly. My gauge was a little off though, so it turned out a little small. I hope to knit the other 2 tams as well in the future.

Wow!! So beautifully done - that tam is exquisite!

Nice job. Fair isle is addictive and not too difficult once you get going.
