I thought this scarf deserved a daylight shot. This scarf is made in a 50/50 merino/angora blend dyed "Lime Splash" by Tess Designer Yarns. The scarf, in mistake stitch rib, is about 2.5" wide and a little over 6 foot long. For the first time in the history of my knitting, I am considering blocking a scarf, just to get everything to line up and be perfect when it comes out of its box for my sister-in-law.
I am thinking that I may need one of my own... but maybe instead of merino and angora mine will be out of some of Axelle's beautifully hand-dyed cashmere.
And in answer to some of the questions left in my comments yesterday -- yep, I am a U of Chicago grad. I was there from 91-97. And Buffalo? Most definitely. I was born there, and lived there until I was four. And is #9 really true? Oh yes, it most definitely is! We met in 1996 and were married in 1998. I know a good deal when I see one!
