Weekend Knitting

These days, there has been a lot of knitting going on at my house. However, a lot of it I can't show you. Yet. But this weekend I knit up another scarf. I worked on it Friday evening, Saturday in a couple of segments, and then this morning. Why? I wanted to avoid shipping it for Christmas. Hand delivery is always best. Right? At least it saves you more money for yarn. ;-) I picked my A Little Bit of Cable Scarf and used two skeins of Hobby Lobby's I Love this Yarn! It weighed in at 400 grams. Which if you read the label makes it 2. 02 skeins of yarn. Go figure. And that's without the fringe. Good thing I opted out, since there wasn't much left in the end.
The finished size ended up at 8 1/2" x 70". This yarn is more like an aran weight rather than a light worsted yarn that I knit the first scarf with. I do like the way this knit up so quickly and how soft it is. I may have to rethink how long it should be to knit more of these? Darn the to-do list!
