...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.

Malabrigo? I love Malabrigo! What a great yarn and a beautiful scarf! I am just exploring cables now and I find it interesting is an all over cable pattern.

Hi Deborah! This is Mama Grouch from the 10 books swap. I am glad the envelope arrived and that you liked it, I saw the photo gallery once I had posted my lists and instantly thought of 101 ways I could have made mine prettier...but in all honesty if I had tried for something like that you probably never would have received them.

I would love to hear what you think of the selections, or just to hear from you at all! You can get a hold of me over at http://www.mamagrouch.com

See you around!
