Knitting 2009, part 2

Here's what I knit in the first half of 2009:

Sunshiney Lace Ribbon Scarf
I made one of these in blue and loved it dearly, but gave it to my wonderful mother in law for her birthday. This was my consolation, and I love it *almost* as much.
Pattern: Lace Ribbon Scarf by Veronik Avery (from Knitty! Free!)
Yarn: Mmmmmmalabrigo lace
(Raveled here, blue version raveled here).

Selbu Modern
Meg came to Texas for my 2008 birthday, and we hit several yarn stores while she was here (shocker.) She picked out these colors of koigu, and I had to copy. She's so amazing with color.
Pattern: Selbu Modern by Kate Gagnon Orborn
Yarn: Koigu KPPM
(Raveled here)

Bamboo Cap Sleeved Top
Ugh, this is a disaster. $80 worth of crappy yarn, unflattering pattern, horrible fit despite 6(!) swatches, and just bad bad bad. When will I stop being seduced by Debbie Bliss patterns?!?!
Pattern: Cap sleeved top by Debbie Bliss.
Yarn: RYC Bamboo Soft. Splitty, slippery, and every single ball had at least one knot (most had more than three). Gawdawful.
(Raveled here)

Mistake rib brioche baby blanket
Pattern: From a kit that didn't actually contain the pattern featured on the packaging. Hill Country Weavers to the rescue!
Yarn: Appalachian Baby Design Organic Cotton
(Raveled here)
