Knitting FO's

I've had a bit of bumper month with finished knitting projects.  Our kitchen was being re-modeled and that's right next to my mac.  So, instead of buying stuff online, I've been making stuff with my stuff.

Little Leaf Scarf

Pattern: Little Leaf Scarf, from Classic Elite's "Make It Modern"
Yarn: Rowan's Purelife Cotton (Brazilwood)

This is the most ridiculously soft cotton I've touched.  It's organic from source through to the dye and knits beautifully at 22st/4".  The plies are a little loose, but I didn't have a problem with splitting.  

It took less than half a ball of yarn and turned it out beautifully.  I think it'll be a perfect gift for my son's amazing Montessori teacher.

I'll keep on posting the rest of the FO's throughout the week.


  1. I love those little books from Classic Elite this season. Your little scarf is a really cute accent piece. I've gotto knit one, too!

  2. May, that's very kind of you.
    I have the yarn and pattern for the classic silk lace pullover from Classic Elite's Summer 2. I saw yours on Ravelry and it's absolutely gorgeous.
