Forbes Forest Nutmeg

Ahhhh...another Forbes Forest complete.



Started: Sept 17, 2006
Finished: October 9, 2006
Pattern: Forbes Forest from "Scarfstyle"
Yarn: Knitpicks Merino Style in Nutmeg
Needles: knit on addis US #5 (I've had to add this for my own personal use, I never remember the needle size used.)
Adjustments: No real adjustments done here. I knit till I was out of yarn...6 balls. It really did knit quickly when cabling without a cable needle and making bobbles without turning my work. I worked on socks inbetween to mix things up...but I will always love knitting this scarf.
It is just gorgeous and....another Christmas gift complete!

I am hoping for many FO's this week. I turned the heel on the second rib and cable sock and finished the colourwork on the second canada sock....oh and even cast on for another sock...
SOCKS SOCKS SOCKS!

How the heck do you get so much knitting done? I am soo jealous. Beautiful scarf.

I guess if I spent more time knitting and less time reading blogs like yours, I'd get more done, too.

Hmm.

The scarf is just lovely. How do you knit things so fast? I have been knitting for 1 1/2 years and still feel so slow. Do you knit continental?

Stephanie said...

Gorgeous. I love that pattern. I put all that FO stuff on my blog for my own reference too - it's nice to be able to go back and see what you did.

Angela said...

Wow, that is beautiful in that size. I didn't really like it so much as a scarf, but it looks great as a stole!

Connie said...

Wonderful! I'm curious, how many Christmas gifts are you going to knit? How many done and how many left to go?

How. Are. You. So. Fast???

Sigh. I'm so slow. It's beautiful. And so expedient. Well done you.

Teresa C said...

Stunning! Man! You knit fast!

Jodie said...

I was hesitant to make this scarf because I couldn't really see it in the picture of the book. Now that I know what it looks like, it's definitely going on the knitting queue.

Meghan said...

The scarf is gorgeous! I'm curious - if you have a minute can you drop me a line to let me know what kind of camera you use? Your pictures are exactly what I would like to take and I'm looking for the perfect camera. Thanks.

I commented on this post yesterday and went and picked up the mail. My Knit Picks order came...except they sent 5 balls of Merino Style instead of the 5 balls of Elegance I (thought) I ordered. I'll reorder the Elegance, but what to do the Merino Style? You used 6 balls for your scarf, I have 5. The yarn used in Scarf Style requires only 5 balls, but I think there was about 7 or 8 more yards per ball with that yarn. I could gamble that I'll have enough to do the required number of pattern repeats, or I could order a 6th ball from Knit Picks, gambling that they can send the same dye lot. Ah, decisions, decisions.

Buy World of Kung fu Gold is the chance. I always have a bad dream when my account was theft, since I buy World of Kung fu Gold ; I had not had the bad memory. At present, I want to say thanks to the people who stole my account, if he did not to do that, I would not play game, I would not have WoKf gold . Although I have little cheap World of Kung fu Gold , I will on the way of the game for long time. At one time or another, I am a pessimistic person, but when I have World of Kung fu money , it changes my attitude of life.

Remembered the first time I played the game and bought Lineage 2 gold , it is about two years. Since the first day I bought Lineage gold , we should know that the day will come sooner or later. And I will not leave my Lineage money . My friends forever, even though I will leave you one day, I will remember you forever. At that time, I was a naive; I must used money to have Lineage 2 money , as that I would not depend on myself. But I was not regret to buy it. It is just a way bring me to the success.
