And a little stashbusting project. I needed new slippers, so I dug out the Paton's Classic leftovers, this time in black,brown and blue and knit up slippers.
I present, the B3 Slippers.

Skinny Scarf 2

The first skinny scarf turned out so well, I wanted one for myself. Thus:



350 stitches cast on longways, knit 2 rows each colour ending with the same colour you started with. This turned out to be almost double my height. And I am 5'3".  I lurves it.

It is knit out of Steve sport yarn. From Rain's Obsessive Stitchery
I cannot emphasize enough how soft this yarn is.

Gfitmas Knitting

It was decided that the Secret Santa at one of my job sites was going to have a theme of DIY gifts. This was decided on my day off. I'm sure the idea was well meant, but damn. They all know I knit, so I am sure that is exactly what they are expecting. As tempting as it was to go to Etsy and buy a handmade gift, I had a skein of bulky chenille that some well-meaning non-knitter had given me, so I  figured this was as a good a time as any to use it.


And matching scarf, although that was knit as garter stitch on bamboo needles:

None of it was fancy, but given the time constraints, I am rather pleased with the result. Although I will  never be knitting with chenille again. Wow that was frustrating.
