    I just finished my “Amicable Socks” - so named because I made them for my ex, and we split on friendly terms. They follow directions from Charlene Schurch’s Sensational Knitted Socks with “Woven Stitch” as the repeating pattern. I used Shoalwater Bay Bamboo/Merino yarn, which I purchased a couple years ago at the Seattle University District Street Fair.

    I made a scarf for a friend. Nothing fancy, though the choice of soft, cozy Tosh Merino convinced her otherwise. She requested a long and skinny scarf. The finished product measures just over six feet long and four - wait, let me measure: three - inches wide. I had enough yarn to go longer, but if she’s happy I’m happy.
