Here’s my pashmina scarf.
Here’s a closeup!
Why didn’t I enjoy knitting it? It was too soft and silky with not a lot of body. I did the whole danged scarf in seed stitch and the little rascal writhed and squirmed all through the knitting. I’m a wool snob — I hate knitting cotton and silk, and this felt very much like knitting with silk. It was a difficult birth. But a beautiful baby, no?
Izzy helped me pick up my neckband stitches on Valtos:
And here is a better pic of Valtos.
The pattern calls for an 8cm neckband, but I may make mine a little shorter as I don’t have a long swan-like neck. I think I’m at 5cm right about now, and that may be enough. I’ll see how I feel about it when I get to it tonight.
Ooh! Ooh! I’m wearing my Fearless Fair Isle today.
I shall leave you all with a photo of The Sock Yarn Hall of Shame. Would you believe I ordered 8 more skeins of Regia yesterday?
Sigh. If only I would use my power for good.
