Wip Weds: I was naughty, sorta

Ok, my sweetheart says I am still pure… he purchased the yarn not me. It still came through the door of my house. Does this count? I needed some Berrocco Vintage to make a scarf for my darling Brothers 50th Birthday. Parents have announced they are heading to Wisconsin for the celebration. As I cannot go I am sending him a handmade present. Had to really look around for a masculine looking conservative looking scarf. My brother is a banker and wears suits and overcoats to work, add to that I’m not sure what colour his coat is. After much thought decided to go for a heathered, mossy green sort of, will go with blue, grey, or brown.  Settled on Irish hiking scarf. I am not a fan of cables, and haven’t done any in sometime. However I am enjoying it, much to my surprise.

Nothing else is getting much attention as there is a deadline for this.

Other projects in the pipe found here. Simple Ridges is done but everything else is pretty much on hold.

Books: Began reading Magic in the Wind, the first of the Drake Sisters Novels by Christine Feehan. They are a good read on a cold afternoon. About 7 magical sisters, you guessed it there are 7 books.

She has started an overlapping series about 7 magical brothers, I have purchased the first two of those, so I want to catch up before I start the new ones.

Well that’s all folks, please feel free to drop me a comment, I enjoy hearing from you!

See ya on friday, god willing :0)

You should pop over to Tami’s Blog and see what’s cookin!

    Yarn for a gift doesn’t count:) The scarf is wonderful. I love the color you’re using.

    New yarn doesn’t count if it is for a gift, so you’re in the clear 😉

    Good choice of colour and pattern, it looks like a perfect manly scarf 🙂

    You’re doing the counting, so you make the rules about what counts. Love the deep mossy green for an Irish cabled scarf!
