I leave today for a week's business trip to California. I'm excited about the trip (and getting some warm weather). And I have the perfect project for the plane -- Ruffles from Interweave Scarf Style.
I subbed the recommended yarn with HandMaiden Sea Silk. Ooooh sooo verrryy sooofttt. Any super soft fabric reminds me of clothes shopping with my Mum -- she'd lead the way through the store, and would touch anything that looked like you could cuddle up in it. 'OOooh feel that' she'd say. So Mum, if you are reading, wait 'til you feel this. It's lush!
The other knitting news: I didn't make my NaKniSweMo goal that I'd set for myself. I'm very close -- I'm working on the cabled yoke. But there was no way I was going to complete it last night before my trip today. I don't know why I set myself these goals. Especially at this time of year when gift knitting takes priority. Aah well, I'm much closer than my last NaKniSweMo sweater - Roadster - that is still sat in my closet waiting for arms, a collar and a button band.
Have a great week!
