Little Makes – February Part Two 

Another two weeks have flown by. This time I’m on it and have pictures to share! Yeah!

Normally I flit between two or three projects but I’ve been focusing on getting this one finished.

My lovely friend K is currently working in New York. When we discovered Caron Cakes were a US exclusive we asked very nicely if she could go to Michaels for us. She was super lovely and brought us a couple of balls home at Christmas.

I wanted to make sure that I used the wool on a specific project. Rather than a bit here and there like I do with other wools. I’d tried casting on a couple of times, only to find that it didn’t always work.

In the end, I settled on the Debut pattern by The Yarn Juice.

Debut - Caron Cakes

Having spent the best part of my spare time this week knitting I actually managed to put the finishing touches to it before bed tonight and snap a couple of pictures (albeit not great!). Technically the pattern finished around the purple lines but with some careful maths I figured out how to repeat section 4 and 5 of the pattern and make it use up the rest of the ball (in fact the casting off row was dealt right for yarn!)

So all finished. I actually finished a project. I think it took me about four weeks in the end. However, I had been alternating with other projects. According to the news, Monday is going to be one of the warmest February days in 100 years. Therefore I won’t necessarily be able to wear my scarf but will try to get some more action pictures!
