I have a couple of quickies today.
I finished the set for Piper. The matching scarf is made out of Manos on US size 11 needles. I casted on 26 stitches and worked in a 2x2 rib for 40 inches. I alternated colors in longer blocks and stripes in a random way. I made three poms for each end that are 2 inches and 10 wraps each (I held three strands together while wrapping). It is the perfect child-size scarf. You don't want a long scarf for a child. Another knitted gift can be checked off my list. Hooray! This set was made from 3 skeins of Manos with a little to spare.
The next bit of news is that the Craftsanity podcast with my interview was posted last night. I think Jennifer did a terrific job putting it together. The free Santa Baby ornament pattern is now posted as well so I hope people whip up some teeny-tiny (vs. itty-bitty) hats before the holidays. You can find all of that at www.craftsanity.com so check it out if you get a chance.
