New Year - New Gear

With a tip of the Pilgrim hat, I bid each and every one of you a fond Happy New Year! Yes, after several weeks of hiatus and hibernation, we are back, and many thanks to those of you who have written to inquire of our wellbeing. Your kind words of encouragement are appreciated immensely.

And so, without further ado, let the bind-off parade begin.

Object 1: Above. Striped Scarf (with special nod to Jared). Noro Silk Garden, alternating stripes in similar colorways. The perfect stocking stuffer to feed the Long-Suffering Other's ongoing stripe fixation. And I am extremely happy to report that he L-O-V-E-S it. As he himself put it, it's his FAVORITE SCARF EVER.

But wait, there's more...

Tiger Stripe Socks for the L-SO. Stripey socks of any sort make for happy, if Long-Suffering, feet.

And what, you may ask, did the L-SO surprise me with?

Happy hands...

how did you get the stockinette on the scarf to sit flat? is it knit in a tube?

congratulations on the pretty ring~

Many thanks to all for your kind comments.
With regard to Janice's question about the scarf, it's not stockinette. It's all in single, k1p1 rib, which I might add became quite tedious before it was all said and done (what with the carrying along and alternating skeins every two rows, and knitting and purling myself into oblivion). But the Pilgrim was extremely pleased with the outcome. And so, as I have stated previously, was the L-SO.
