Happy Thanksgiving!


Well, I hope you all had a great day of turkey, family and friends! I know I did! YAY pumpkin pie! LOL

Here is the start of my newest Top-Down Raglan. I have had this in my stash for ages and I think that it is time to use it up! I was given it and instructed that I could not use thes two huge balls of colourful, oatmeal based aran weight to make an afghan....... darn. So here I am a few years later and I finally have a use for at least one ball! I am not sure if I will have to go over to the other to finish the sleeves, but I will find out in a bit! Since I already have a back-up supply I am not really worried about needing extra!

I decided to add a detail along the sleeves and along the sides under the arms...... cables!


You can see them in there along the sleeve begining. Also a close up of the yarn. I have to admit I am guilty of not knowing what yarn it is, but I can check with the extra ball for the ball band and report in later. The cable is a simple 6 stitch one. I feel like I have said this before, in a previous post so I won't ramble much about it now, but in the re-cap when it is done.


I do have an FO for you too! Another Star Scarf! YAY the double knit! Thanks again to

Crafty Chick for this fantastic pattern! I just love getting one of these done! I will have to update my Ravelry! Off to do that now!

Have a great week everyone!
