Red Lang Scarf

| 3 Comments

Friday (at least early Friday morning) is for finishing today. After setting Sigil's second cuff out to block I spent the rest of my TV watching hours finishing up a simple ladder yarn scarf worked on US 13 (9.0 mm) needles. Sometimes a girl just needs some big color in her hands.

I know, there's something not quite right about having a beautiful wooly sheep helping me show off a novelty yarn scarf with not one iota of natural fiber in it. But she didn't mind doing the photo shoot and her price is right, so I just couldn't keep her out.

This is my second to last gift scarf of the winter, and my last ladder yarn scarf for a while. As I say every time I make one, I love the look, but don't stay enraptured by the knitting.

And what showed up on my doorstep Wednesday night?

It's still in the plastic because I knew if I opened thew well-sealed bag, even just to take a look at the pattern, I would be utterly unable to distance myself from the Colinette siren song. I've told myself I can't even open the bag until the last of the gift scarves are finished.

Fortunately, I don't think the last scarf will take me too long. I've decided it's going to be a one skein Kid Silk Haze scarf modelled after one of the 2-4 hour patterns in Last Minute Knitted Gifts a book I treated myself too recently that has a lot of neat, quick ideas.

Wow, I'm dying to see what's in that bag!

As for the sheep and ladder scarf- I think it's a nice juxtaposition. Like a cashmere sweater with PVC pants. Uh...that DOES work...right? ;)

That colorway for the AbFab is really lovely - I can't wait to see it knit up.

WHERE did you get that sheep?!? ~covetcovetcovet!~
