Who doesn't want a brand new wool scarf/shawl thingy when its 104 degrees outside?
I'd like to say that I was planning ahead for the long, cold Idaho winter. But, no- I just wanted to knit something that required less needle and thought and counting than the gloves I've been slowly working on. And then I got a little obsessed.
OK- a lot obsessed. I knit the whole thing in six days.
But, look at it. How could I resist the loveliness of that green? And the simplicity of the pattern? No consulting the pattern every single row. No searching for a missing double pointed needle. Sometimes I crave something challenging. Not this time. Just simple, peaceful, meditative knitting.
All the details on pattern and yarn and modifications are on Ravelry.
