Inspiration Leigh Radford

Last Sunday I took a class from Leigh Radford. I was so inspired by Leigh and the class, that I have been a knitting machine this week. I've had so many new ideas bumping around in my head that they have been pouring off of my knitting needles. These 3 short scarves have been the week's success stories.

Of course, I had to knit a green one first. The yarn is Paintbox and the needles were size 35. There is no pattern and mistakes are but a design element. How does it get any better than that?

Next I tried some Manos on size 19 needles.

Back to more Paintbox and those giant size 35 needles. Now I must admit, this a variation of a pattern for a ruffle scarf. But again, the occasional mistake is welcome. And for all of these projects I have to give credit to my partner in the creative process, my washing machine, the knitters best friend.
