Hello all -
Tuesday, February 26, 2008
This is a fishtail lace pattern that was modified for scarf size and yarn/needle size. I wanted a soft cloud like feeling using a soft sport weight yarn and US size 10 needles. The color is sort of a periwinkle blue.
Finished last week and ready to send out.

Well, the groundhog said that we would have 6 more weeks of winter, but I'm still waiting for it to start here in the suburbs of NYC! We have had a pathetic winter - tons of rain that would have made for beautiful white landscapes (and snow days...can you tell I'm a teacher with grown children?) and only a few really cold days. I've been told that I might have to move to another part of the country if I want to experience winters like I did as a child. sigh.
At any rate, I've been plodding away on my spring scarf - it is in a pale yellow wool and I am doing the basketweave scarf from Knitting Daily. http://www.knittingdaily.com/freepatterns/scarves_belts/Basketweave_Scarf_by_Ann_Budd30-1.html
Since I'll be logging in some airplane time I'm bringing it on the plane since the other project I am bringing entails a cable needle, which I don't want to have look for in the plane (am I the only person who is forever dropping their cable needle? I've taken to poking it through my pattern so I can find it!)
If I can get this scarf done I got some pinky purply lace weight yarn in a closeout at KnitPicks and figured that would make another spring scarf...if time allows.
Happy Knitting! Marcie

Now I just have to decide how I want my scarf to look for March.
The weather here in Yuma has been warm, then cold, then warm again. A weird winter so far. But we certainly won't complain compared to what the rest of the country has had to put up with...
I hope everyone is well and warm.

It's been far too quiet around here! I hope we haven't been deserted!
I've removed the off color from that scarf in the last picture I posted and found the correct color of yarn and I'm off knitting again.
I'm also working on one made in tapestry yarn, knit lengthwise, a different color each row! It's coming along nicely in a k2, p2 pattern.
Have you all started your spring scarves? What colors are you using?
