time for scarves yet?

It hadn't really felt like Toronto had a summer this year. I don't even recall putting on the air conditioning once this summer. With all the rainfall we received, it's like we never left Ireland in June. I finally got around to blocking my star stitched scarf, perfect timing since it feels like fall and the dreaded winter comes around. Don't get me wrong, winter can be great. Knitting sweaters, scarves, mittens, all things to help us brave the big bad winter... but once February rolls around, I've about had it. Especially with the amount of snow we got last winter. Here's the first piece of my artillery:

As for my Noro Striped scarf, it's coming along quite well:

On a non-knitting front, a good friend of my husband, who also wonderfully did our photography for our wedding, revamped her website. For anyone in the London area, I highly recommend hiring her talent! If only she wasn't on the other side of the pond, I'd ask her to take pictures of new designs for patterns. Take a look-see: and yes, that's me on that page :) Some of our wedding photos are on her weddings page.

Back to more designing. Will post soon =)

Both the scarves look great! I really like the colours in the first one!

Hi. Found your blog via Knitty. I loved the pattern in Knitty but the reason I am writing is that the model looks just like my son when he was a toddler. I emailed you a photo of my son in case the model is your nephew and you want to see how he is going to look at 35.

Love your blog and it's already been bookmarked.

Great was a hop, skip and a jump away from Ravelry ^_^.

Question: Which yarn/colour did you use for the star stitch scarf! It is GORGEOUS!

Thanks Graceface =) I used Manos Del Uruguay's 100% wool in the colour Stellar. I used two hanks for the scarf.
