Cooey the pigeon

I finished three knitting projects this weekend! First my Noro Silk Garden socks…

I’ll definitely be knitting socks with Silk Garden again, it’s lovely yarn and I’m so chuffed that I got the colour repeats to line up.

Next, the Antlers scarf by Micah P. Dammeyer from Debbie Stoller’s Son of Stitch’n bitch. This was my second project with cables and I may be hooked! I’m really pleased with how it came out and the yarn is just wonderful; Artesano Aran, a 50/50 blend of wool and alpaca in a natural heathered colour called “Birch”. Three skeins made a scarf taller than I am. This is going to be so warm in winter.

And, last but certainly not least, a project I started and finished today… Cooey the pigeon.

I’m sure that Cooey is the star of Lauren O’Farrell’s wonderful book Stitch London, which comes with a Cooey the pigeon kit but I decided to substitute with some lovely Morris Estate.

  1. Beautiful projects! Congrats on getting the colors matched on the Noro socks because sometimes even their color repeats aren’t the same! And I love that Antlers pattern…my husband isn’t a scarf guy (even though I keep threatening I’m going to get one around his neck) so maybe I’ll make it for me?!? Cooey is adorable too 🙂

    • Although it’s from “Son” of Stitch’n bitch, I think the antlers scarf would look great on a woman too — then, maybe your husband could borrow it!
