The Daylight Saving time change is coming up which means it's getting trickier to get the daylight shots I like. There's simply no time after work, the gym, and an occasional adult beverage to set up a nice photo shoot. I've resorted to carting finished objects (ok, object, singular) to work for the finished pics. I didn't have room in my bag today for the package I received in the One Yard Fabric Swap, but those pictures will be coming up later this week too.
On to the finished stuff!
I knit 85% of this scarf in about 4 days from the two skeins of Silk Garden I bought back in April. As I got closer to finishing I realized the scarf needed to be a touch longer than I had yarn for. I put it down, panicked for 3 weeks and then decided to find another skein. Thankfully Hill Country Weavers still had the same colourway. It was a different dyelot and other than being slightly crunchier than the first two skeins, it was almost identical. Whew! Dodged a bullet with that one. I was really happy with the Noro this time around too. No sticks, no pokey bits, no knots and delightfully soft. Could it be Noro is listening?
