I had been asked since November by this extremely nice guy at our shooting club if I would make him a scarf. He wanted something like cashmere or really soft. Not granny acrylic. Right there, he had me. Oh god, I may be a newbie into this addiction of knitting, but anyone who wants good wool over acrylic knows my number.

I had only just started knitting in September and pooh poohed him until I found the right yarn.  Noro Silk Garden.  45% Silk. 45% Mohair. 5% Lambswool.  Manly colors of brown, gray and shades either side.  It has been a real pleasure to work with this.

I started in January and pretty much frogged it about 5 times and really farked it over after the 5th restart because I was distracted by the TV. Instead of ripping it out again, I went to the knitting store and groveled for help. The Goddesses of Yarn fixed my fark up nicely and I was back in business again. It has been my constant purse companion for over 8 weeks as I do a little every day waiting for my kids to get out of school.

I don't know how to add images here successfully, so I shall link it to my photobucket

  Rolled up.


I just cast on 200 stitches on circular needles ( 5 or 7, can't remember. sorry. I have a 1 bit memory drive.) and knit the entire thing.  Very meditative.

Oh that's great! I bet he loves it.

PS: to make an image, just put in your link to photobucket the way you did, then put (img) at the start and (/img) at the end of the link, only you use these brackets [ ] instead of the round ones.
