...and speaking of scarves
My International Scarf Exchange scarf arrived! That's me wearing it in Princeton outside one of the many fun shops sprinkled around town.
My pal' s name is Dee and she sent me such nice goodies along with my scarf - homemade chocolate, lovely stitch markers with matching notecards. There was also a candle that I'm sure to enjoy as I take my long and luxurious baths.
It is a lovely all over cable pattern knit in Malabrigio yarn. It is soft and long and blends nicely with my tones.
I have only one more deadline knit item to complete. It's a Karabella scarf that's giving me a fit with a motiff the auction winner requested. This is a very fine merino and it is not very forgiving with mistakes or awkward stitch placements. So I've frogged this one too often to count. I'll try to post some pictures later.
