wow, i finished something!

now that spring is here (i think–it keeps teasing us, but i think it’s finally settled in) i have a nice long, warm scarf to warp up in against the cold. impeccable timing on my part. however, it looks pretty now. the pattern is ‘open and folds cabled scarf’ from knitspot. it proved to be just about the perfect scarf pattern for me – the pattern is interesting enough that i didn’t really get bored but easy enough i quickly had it memorized. i used sublime yarns – cashmere merino silk aran in vintage red. it’s a little heavier than the recommended yarn, so i bumped up the needle size and made a slightly bigger scarf. i absolutely loved knitting with it–the yarn is so smooth, i swear it knits itself.

now that i have this finished, i just have two ‘on the needles’ knitting projects. the wing-o-the-moth shawl is coming along so well i’m thinking it’s time to start looking for the next project. (yes, i’m avoiding the ‘other’ project. it’s a sweater. it’s not cooperating. and it’s wool, which is as good an excuse as any to put it off until cooler weather. (which around here probably means in two days…))
