Here I am breaking a cardinal rule.....posting a picture on the blog when I was sort of, kind of, jokingly?, told not to. Here is Cara's boyfriend, (there I didnt say he was my son) knitting the Christmas gift scarf. By now, the scarf is easily 14 inches long or so. The yarns he choose would never have been my guess for such a pretty outcome. He's using a kettle dyed brown with a handpaint sock yarn in JETTY. JETTY was a prize yarn from this year in fingering weight, by Spindlecatstudio.etsy.com. I'd describe it as a blend of light grey/blues and yellows. The mix is magical.
In the other shots I took, you can clearly see the clicker for the TV at the ready for channel changing. I suspect tonight the knitting will be set aside as Cara's boyfriend is playing in the high school Battle of the Bands. Well, I can't say he's got his priorities straight yet, but afterall he's young.
