small things

Made a little drawstring cellphone cozy:

It's 2x2 ribbing, which I have found is the best result with Rumors by Paton. The colors somehow pool better than with straight knitting or stockinette.

And I also used two skeins of a neat ribbon yarn, made of wool and nylon, to make a manly sort of scarf:

It's icona from Bertagna Filati. The texture is quite squishy in a nice comforting way. It will be a "scarf" scarf for someone at school. An almost random act of knitting generosity. Sorry about the free advertising. Mr. Gates should pay me.

Hope you are all happily knitting away.
