I think Noodles loves yarn more than I do~~~

Finally... some FO's~
Pattern: Lotus Blossom Tank by Sharon Shoji
Yarn: Knit One Crochet Too- Babyboo- Pink
used nearly 8 full skeins of yarn
Needles: Knit picks Harmony Options: size 6 and 7
Made for: my granny~
Size made: the 2nd size listed
- added 1 repeat of the Lace pattern
- added length to the stockinette portion of the bust and back
- when finishing... I picked up stitches around the entire neck (including the front) and knit 4 rows in garter stitch.
- The front was kinda floppy so while knitting the 4 garter stitch rows I k2tog every 11th stitch on the front aspect, and again p2tog every 11th stitch while binding off.
- also k2tog 6 stitches- 3 at each front corner
- BO on purl-wise

Pattern: Diamond Scarf by Wenlan Chia
Yarn: Twinkle- Soft Chunky- white
2 full skeins for the scarf... and 1/2 skein for fringe
Needles: Size 19- Boye
Made for: a cousin
I love this scarf... I'm currently seriously considering keeping it for myself. Its super soft and smooshy... and super super long (i love long scarves)... downside: its a bit on the heavy side. The yarn shed like nobody's business when I was working with it... I washed it in nearly Boiling water... and then soaked in... SOAK (aquae)... the shedding has improved... the Soaking process left it with a funny smell(like permed hair)~ I will be sending it off to be dry cleaned next

Pattern: A Christmas Dishcloth Story by Kristen Patay
Yarn: Be Sweet- Bamboo- 661
Needles: Knit Picks harmony Options- Size 4
Made for... grandma's Nurse (part of her christmas gift)
it was a very easy... super fast knit... I followed the written instructions... which were very clear~ perfect!
my 1st wash cloth~
