MMM.... Softness....

A good friend of Hubster and I happens to really likes my knitting.

She has a daughter. She's a tiny little thing that is almost always cold.

So this friend asked me if I'd make something for the daughter to help her out this winter.

So I hit the stash and the web. This is what I can up with:

That would be Misti Alpaca Chunky in color 1321 (that would be cornflower blue in my mind maybe).

The pattern would be a take on Envy over at Yarn Ball Boogie.

I screwed up the seed stitch in the first 6 rows, so it's ribbed. So I carried that over to the end of it.

I did 20 cable crosses for the length of it, because I only had one skein to work with since the other was allocated. I used size 13 needles.

No button holes. The buttons I chose and the give of the openness of my knitting mean the buttons go through just fine.

There are two on either end place opposite of the other end diagonally. So she can button it either way she decides to wrap it.

I hope she likes it. It's super soft. I'm tempted to put it in the dryer for about 2 minutes (ONLY) to fluff it up a little bit.

****Ignore the model. She doesn't photograph well. Neither does she wear makeup on a regular basis (ok ever).

My kind of model. And a lovely scarf. (I'm wearing one in this cold house myself right now.)
