A couple of Finished Projects

This project is by my niece Jodi--her second finished project since she learned how to knit.  Simple Garter stitch, about 40 stitches wide.  This was knitted with Fortissima Colori Socka Color in colorway "Grand Canyon" which is available on ebay in several colors

This scarf took one ball (420 m/460 yd) on size 3 needles.  She used it as practice knitting on sock yarn since she's almost ready to try a pair of socks.

The scarf measures 7" x 50"

This is my last "assigned" Pomp-a-doodle scarf, knitted for my great-niece Kaitlyn.  It's on size 35 needles, knitted with:  1 skein Red Heart Cotton Candy Pink Pomp-a-Doodle, a partial skein of Lion Brand Homespun Cotton Candy Pink, and a partial skein of Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in Rose Mist.  This one may be my favorite.  It was easy to do and fuzzy & warm, yet lightweight.  Good color contrast.  It measures 7"x48".
