Well, I caved. I started knitting the Magdalen scarf using Knit Pick’s Brava worsted weight yarn. It is a wonderful cabled adventure into fall scarf knitting.

Cables are so much fun to knit. I was very intimidated by them when I first learned how to knit them a few years ago, but they are very simple when you learn how to read the patterns and carry the stitched over. They keep me engaged, and create a beautiful texture and depth in the knitting.

So. Much. Fun. 

But yes, update on the sock yarn blanket: I have three little squares now 🙂

Two are made with Hedgehog Fibres sock yarn in wonderful electric blue hues, and the other (pictured in my previous post) is made with  Madeleine Tosh’s hand-dyed sock yarn in FlashDance.
