Digging trough my knitting bag i always find small scanes of yarn left over from bigger projects that still want to use. I decided to combine a few random yarns -- a light purple wool, a gold and purple ribbony yarn and a black boucle -- to create a chunky knit scarf with a little bit of shine. Knit on size 13 29" circular needles, i cast on 100 sts and knit 11 rows.

The end result is a thick and plush wintery wrap that knits up quickly and looks very little like left-overs!

Thanks to Maya for being my model. i thought she was getting a little cold!

a picture of my new place.

here's my bright and sunny kitchen, photographed on my day off when i really should be unpacking more stuff.

also, my little corner in my bedroom with my desk all set up. yes, those are pictures torn from the pages of the new anthropologie catalogue. i taped up the sweaters for some knitting inspiration.

gotta get to work!
