Dream Bird I - Noro Silk Garden Yarn

Each year I try to challenge myself with a new pattern. I found this pattern called the Dream Bird. I wanted to make it for a Christmas present for a special friend who is dear to my heart. I started the project in October of 2013. I didn't finish it until January 2014. I didn't make it in time for Christmas, but the gift was sent to her. I didn't knit the month of November. I ended up with a cold, and I didn't want to touch the scarf. This was a fun scarf to make - I used a size 2 circular needle - 2 skeins of Noro Silk Garden sock yarn (discontinued)- 2 skeins of Heritage Cascade sock yarn. I made some stitch markers (you will need a lot- in 2 different colors. A lot of counting and concentration. I did my fair share of mistakes, and back tracking. I handmade it with love =) Here is the start of a beautiful scarf Started October 2013
Finished January 2014
Here is a picture of the scarf laid out

Multi-Color Beaded Fingerless Gloves

Multi-Color Fingerless Gloves

I started these gloves over three times. I was given the pattern by Trish. Instead of adding beads every 3rd row, I added beads every 5th row. I changed the the hand part to all knit stitches instead of the knit 3, purl 2. The fingerless gloves that I am making are a size large.
