Pretties!

So yesterday was my birthday, and I got some yarn!!  Boss Lady (a non-knitter) picked me up these goodies.  The two colors of Classic Wool are going to become slippers for me so when mine wear out I've got back ups.  The first colorway is bird of paradise, the second is commotion variegate.



She also picked me up a couple of skeins of Bernat Sox in pink camouflage.


And I have another FO to show.  I finished this infinity scarf last night for my friend, L, who has a birthday (same age) tomorrow.  It's the Denver Cowl, the yarn is some no name stuff I bought several years ago at Zellers, it's 70% acrylic,30% wool.  It was kind of splitty yarn to be using for daisy stitch, but it looks good.  The yarn has a nice halo about it.  I cast on 240sts instead of 260sts.  I kind of wish I would have stuck with 260sts after it was finished, but this way I have two full skeins left to make another one, but I think I will use a different pattern.  Maybe another 5th Avenue. Details on this one here.




Happy knitting!

Good job on the infinity scarf. Is that an easy stitch to do? I haven't tried it yet, but it is a very pretty stitch.
