I actually finished something!!!! Don't tell anyone it was on size 10.5 needles.... This scarf and pin are for a friends mom. It was just a quick knit to break up the monotony of the bigger, more involved projects I've been working on.
Pattern: Snowy Triangles and Pinwheel Flower from Handknit Holidays by Melanie Falick
Yarn: Paton's Nuance in Cedar Rose Colorway
Needles: Clover Takumi US Size 10.5
Time: Total of about 3 hours
I haven't used a "craft store" yarn in awhile, and it wasn't really that big of a deal. Yeah, it was cheap and about 80% acrylic but I'm happy with what came out of it. I really liked the metallic thread it was plied with and it was very soft.
