I haven’t just been knitting for baby. On the way to the wedding a couple of weeks ago, I finished this:
It’s the Mason-Dixon Scribble Scarf, and I have to say it’s a nice quick knit, especially when you want something cute to go with the plain old black maternity dress you just had to buy.
Sorry for the lack of real life modeling shots. It did look cute with the dress. As you can see, it’s shorter than a scarf, I guess it’s more of a stole. I just kept knitting on the drive down and cast off when we got to the hotel. The yarn is Crystal Palace laceweight mohair and some sort of rayon novelty yarn from Knit One Crochet Two. As usual, the labels are lost.
I’ll be back with more soakers in a couple of days. I also purchased a diaper pattern, so we’ll see what I manage to sew up.
To be honest, I’m amazed I can manage to read and understand a pattern these days. I can’t believe what major baby brain I have this time. The other day I actually melted our camera. Lucky for me it still works, especially after all that work the Skeptic put into fixing it the last time I broke it. Little Man had swiped it, and I took it and hid it in what brilliant place? The top of our toaster over. Then I heated up some rolls in it for ten minutes. Yeah, I’m totally on top of things!

The scarf is really cool looking! I’m glad the camera still works. 🙂
I totally understand. I keep joking to my husband that the placenta must be thriving on what little intellegence the kids have left behind. It’s not much fun, but in a year or two I hope i’ll be back to normal.
Sounds more like little man mischief than pregnancy brain to me! Let him take a little credit – you deserve it.
Lovely! And I love the Mason Dixon book – maybe someday I’ll make something other than those dishcloths…!
Gorgeous scarf! I’m very glad that your camera is still working!
That’s so pretty! I’ve got the scribble scarf in mind as one of my summer knitting goals.
