Thank You Tish!

Gift from Downstream SP6, Tish
My downstream pal, Tish, from the prevous SP6 round is such a sweetheart. She sent me some of her leftover balls of rowan kidsilk haze that she won, AND threw in a bonus ball of blue sky cotton. i mentioned to her how much i adore petting ksh, and she was so very kind to send this to me. thank you so much! i think gazing at its soft yummy goodness lit a fire under me.

Trellis Scarf from Spring 2006 IK
i felt some guilt about casting aside the trellis scarf for so long. last night i sat down and tripled its length. i don't know what happened. it's like the pattern just clicked and i was finally able to make forward progress. if i can just keep my cats away from it, i might one day finish the scarf.

i've also rediscovered my love of ksh. i'm *enjoying* knitting with it. so someday all of my mohair will become actual knitted objects instead of sitting in my stash as humble little tribbles. yay.

  2. Wow! You're waaay farther along than I am. It looks terrific! Do you intend to knit the full 23 repeats? I'm thinking that will be too long...

  3. Jennifer, i think i'm up to 12 repeats so far. i might stop a few repeats shy of what the pattern says, but i'll probably stop when i can comfortably wrap it around my neck without it looking stubby. i don't think it'll be much fewer, maybe 20 repeats?
