Gifts

I've finally decided on some projects for my gift yarns...

I didn't really want to make socks with the lovely, soft  Mini Mochi and I've been wondering what I could do.  Inspiration popped as I was trolling the Ravelry pattern database.   I found a lovely scarf pattern which I thought could be effective in this richly dyed yarn.  Thanks to Bonnie Sennott and her Falling Water pattern.



And I've cast on the sock yarn, too.  I was looking for a pattern that had enough to keep my interest and yet was easy to remember.  This is it -  Spring Forward by Linda Welch.



Both patterns are free on Ravelry.  If you knit and you haven't signed up yet...do it! It's fun and helpful.

Falling water is a pretty pattern. It's perfect for your yarn choice. I'm liking both of your selections.

The top photo ios stunning. That yarn is just georgous. Your pattern looks a little bit like the cable stitch, but with a twist. So fresh and new looking!
