“Backyard Leaves” In Progress

Now that the gift knitting marathon is over, I can get back to one of my favorite new projects, and this is for me.

Annie Modesitt’s “Backyard Leaves”

“Backyard Leaves” from Scarf Style from is addictive, I tell you. I am never bored, yet it’s not too taxing. I catch mistakes quickly and it’s really taking off. The yarn is from Karabella, 4 balls of Aurora8 #716 merino wool. Very springy and soft, and the green has just enough of a heathery yellow undertone to make it sing. I’m 1/4 done.

I know — my pictures aren’t the best. I’m still learning how to use my camera. You can see a picture of another knitter’s beautifully blocked scarf here and here

  1. Your work is lovely. The detail and color of the backyard leaves is perfect. I also really like the hat.
