Finished Traveling Vines! WhoooHooo!


Just when I thought I'd never finish another item except dishcloths (which is a good thing to do, since June 1 is the beginning of hurricane season...click the Cloths for Crisis button over there in the sidebar and come help us be prepared to send assistance as it's needed this year?)...what do you know? Tonight I finished off Cari's Traveling Vines Scarf!

Here it is all stretched out and blocking....I think it's going to make an awesome scarf...I'll try to get a neighbor to stop by and photo me in my olive coat with the scarf (in the A/C..welll...since it's 47 now, we could probably do it outside - it's freaking 47 degrees in May in Virginia!!! This is nuts!

And...this is where it all started. Wendy (yes THAT Wendy) sent me this lovely Koigu for her birthday in January and from here I frogged the original version (which became my first pair of socks down below there) and began knitting a scarf that would block out and show the lace pattern beautifully! Of course, the colors of the yarn don't show well...they're olive, terracotta, taupe, and lavender. Sooo pretty!

I finished another piece of lace! Wheeeeeeeeeee!

That's an awesome stitch!! Is it hard to do? I suck at lace and I have no patience . . . but I'm so attracted to the way it looks.

What a wonderful job you did! I only miss wearing a scarf when I look at a beautiful one like this, as I am so glad it's finally spring, but you will have to plan for an evening event to show this off.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
