No Longer Besotted


"Besotted" Scarf

Stitch Detail

She's done and I'm happy. This yarn is a definite must buy again. It may look like wool but it's actually a cotton/nylon blend which makes it a perfect scarf yarn for a mild California winter (in my humble opinion). And I think my lamp is doing a lovely job modelling. I'll need to remember that if and when the Irish Hiking Scarf ever gets done.

So now it's time to try and create this ...

I'm using Lorna's Laces Shetland Sock in "Berry." With my new palmwood needles. I adore palmwood needles. I thought bamboo were the bomb. Ha. They've got nothing on palmwood. I guess that's why palmwood are like three times the price. But they're sooooo smooth. And they have nice sharp pointy ends for doing all those k2tog. And they feel like *real* wood, as opposed to bamboo which sometimes feels like plastic. Or maybe I'm becoming a needle snob. This particular pattern is dead easy compared to Branching Out since the only lacey part is for the hearts, the rest is simple garter stitch. Of course the pattern is also 400 rows but that's 400 rows of mostly garter stitch. Work with me here.

Andy says ...

"Give me a ball of yarn, Human."

    I was thinking Andy's saying, "Leave me alone and the yarn doesn't get hurt."

    April, Andy is the bomb (and Sam says hi)! I love the scarf. Perhaps you should get your lampshade an agent?

    The scarf is gorgeoumundus. I'm impressed by how well the cabling shows up in this yarn -- going to have to check it out!

    And, ya know, MEOW, Andy!

    andy is the world's biggest attention hog, he NEVER wants to be left alone. especially if i'm knitting, then he REALLY needs attention.

    I have to say that I have fallen in love with Clover Bamboo circulars and bought sizes 3-13. I never thought I would like bamboo soooo much!
