Pat's Knitting and Quilting
July 9, 2007
I finished this scarf on the exact day that the Mystery Stole 3 KAL began so the timing was perfect and a new morning knitting project was born. The pace is just right for me and I love that there is a limit as to how much you can do....keeps me in check! I am using JaegerSpun Zephyr Wool-Silk in "indigo" (a beautiful deep midnight blue with that elegant silk luster) on US 4 (3.5mm) needles - no beads.
I've played with the chart to make is easier and quicker for me....taking a few minutes to write in the # for the upcoming knit stitches (no stopping to count while knitting) and coloring right and left slanting decreases.
My sister (Carol) and niece (Dana) have returned to Colorado - We had a great time together! Here they are at Kimball Farm attempting to down a whole Kimball's Special (those from MA know how daunting this task is!)
