koigooooooo

I finished up the Caryl’s Kerchief with the one skein of koigu. It’s the first time I have incorporated beading into my knitting, and I have to say it was quite fun. Here’s the finished product:

I won’t be able to wear it for several months, but I think I’ll get a lot of use out of it when it does finally cool down! I purchased the kit, which includes the koigu and the beads, from foxy knits.

    Very cute. :)
    My 4 year old asked me to knit him some socks so when I set out all my sock yarn he picked the Koigu. Kid’s got good taste.

    I love the colors and the beading! I think I’ll have to take a look at that kit– looks like it’d be a great introduction to Koigu and beadwork!

    The scarf looks so cool and colorful. That reminds me that I have an ascot pattern/yarn in my stash from The Boyz.

    Mariko, I love your Caryl’s Kerchief. Thanks for passing along the info to your fellow bloggers. I just got home to California from Canada where I bought lots and lots and lots of lovely new Koigu colorways. (Really, I cleaned them out)
