Shiny, Shiny

I've been getting ready to move so my output has been very low, lately. Though I did finally finish this (please excuse the bad focus...my tripod decided my camera was too heavy, and it's making self portraits very difficult):



It's sort of the Phiaro Scarf from Knitscene, but I couldn’t find my copy of the magazine (I KNOW I have it somewhere…) so I pieced it together through what I remembered from looking at it and people’s various comments online. Turned out well, I think. I twisted the stitches immediately before and after the drop to help keep them in shape, which worked respectably well. Not terribly exciting to knit, but the finished result is probably worth it. The fringe is still kinky even after blocking, but it's nothing a few months of Portland drizzle won't cure.



LOVE this yarn (Malabrigo Silky Merino, in Indiecita.)



I also finally got all that gifted raw alpaca processed. It now looks like this:





Mmm, chocolatey. There's gray underneath, too. This might be another reason why I haven't knitted much. I don't know how I'm going to get it all to Portland. Sigh.

  1. I'm new here. I just had to say, I love that scarf. So different, which is GREAT. Love the hats below as well. Really considering making myself a Floopy.

    Hope you have a safe and happy journey!

  3. Don't I know it - that's the LAST thing I need. And yet I'm pretty happy about it...

    (I lived here for a few years a while back but all sorts of new ones sprung up in my absence. Aye me.)
