Recently completed projects

I have completed some projects recently.

First, I knitted an oversized sweater in Noro Silk Mountain yarn. I measured some oversized sweaters I bought from the Sarah Duncan store in Bath (sadly no longer there). Based on the tension I obtained switching with this yarn, I used Garment Designer to plan and calculate the stitch and row counts I would need to make a garment in the same size and shape.
 

Next, I strung some Picture Jasper beads that I had purchased on sale from Hobbycraft, with some spacer beads I had in my stash.
 

Finally, I made the Pfeilraupe scarf that is very popular at the moment, using some Rowan Alpaca Colour yarn (discontinued and bought on clearance).
There are so many ways to wear this scarf, if you want to see more, take a look at my Ravelry project page, where you can follow to the designers information and the pattern itself.
