ooh, look!

an FO!

now, this one was finished but un-blocked when i decided to take on this little endeavor, which is why it isn't in the stash photo or on the sidebar. and its such a timely FO, what with the country just easing out of the grip of the biggest heatwave we've felt in a while, and august not yet come to pass here in the sauna of the south. no matter, i love it, and wore it around the house last night for an hour.

(ignore the smiling idiot head)
scarf 2

mistake rib scarf - cast-on 23
yarn: 2 skeins rio de la plata handspun & handpainted merino wool
size US 10.5 needles
specs: 7 inches wide and 94! inches long

it's home for the next few weeks at dunwoody yarn, helping to sell more rio
scarf 5

i LOVE LOVE LOVE the colors of this yarn, and i think the stitch pattern, plus alternating skeins every two rows (one hank had more green, the other more yellow) helped disperse the colors more. for some reason, it made me think of tomatoes. weird. i'm so happy with this FO, it was exactly what i envisioned - super-wide, super-long & super simple.

awesome!

That yarn is gorgeous! And I'm dying to try the mistake rib if I can just bring myself to knit a scarf this time of year.
