Until about 45 minutes after class ended, when Sally (a fellow teacher) walked in. wearing this beautiful scarf.
She knit it with Kidsilk Haze leftovers (about seven colors) - 80-ish stitches in the round (the scarf is actually a flat tube) on a size 6 needle, randomly striped. I was smitten. pretty much Love at First Sight.
When I remembered the Kidsilk Haze project I had hibernating*, it quickly jumped to the frog pond and this new scarf moved up in my queue to the next "epic stockinette" spot**.
The girls were all too happy to help me choose a few new colors. I think I might need one more ... suggestions welcome (seriously!)
|my "original" colors are the 2nd and 3rd in from the top right - dark and light purple|
*yep, here it was...just before I tossed that tiny bit of knitting in the trash and reclaimed the five balls of dark purple and three-ish balls of light purple for the new scarf. (also yay! for finding - and reclaiming - my 16" size 7 needle and a very pretty marker!)
**my Stole 2.0 is this close to being done - that little ball to knit (maybe 10 rows?) and then a border (in cream) around the whole piece - 5 rows of garter. It might even happen this weekend!
