Double Scoop for the Ice Cream Boy











Thanks all for helping me decide on the colors for this one. It was ready indouble scoop 2 September, for the birthday boy, but I never got around to posting pictures of the FO here.

Rechtzeitig zum Geburtstag fertig im September, jetzt endlich hier die Fotos. Danke nochmal fuer die Hilfe bei der Farbentscheidung, und spezieller Dank an Julia, die die Herbstfarben (oder war es orange) vorschlug.

C'etait pret a temps pour l'anniversaire de monsieur, et voici enfin une photo.intarsia

Double Scoop for N
Yarn: Phildar Quietude, mainly because the colors I wanted were there. I really liked knitting with this yarn, though. Ah, and of course, it needed to be machine washable, too. (50% wool, 50% acrylics)
Color: fall colors (thanks for that suggestion, Julia, you can find my trepidation about color choices here)
Needles: 3.5 and 4.5 mm Turbo Addis
Pattern: Double Scoop from Knitty, size 4 years
CO: 29aug06 BO:17sep06
Modifications: none that I remember (well, despite the obvious: color and yarn choice to make this into a warm winter sweater).
Knitting fun: easy, quick, fun to knit. Very good travel knit.
Techniques learnt: don't remember any. First time I picked up the sleeve stitches at the armholes, not sure this qualifies as a technique. (and I actually prefer seaming them, so now I now that one, too)
