Brrr.......it is pretty cold up here this morning. The day is supposed to warm up to nearly 60 today, but you would never guess that by the hard frost when I shot this picture.
This little scarf is the kit that I purchased from Rabbit Tree Farm Cashmere at Rhinebeck this fall. Diane from Indigo Di was sporting one and I just fell in love with it.
It is an easy lace pattern, once you get a feeling for how to keep those Yo2's neat and consistent. (I started twice before I felt they were right).
Of course working with Cashmere is always a treat and even though this tis the season for giving, this little scarf will be staying right here. :-). My knitting to give projecst are also on the needles :-).
Speaking of needles, I have to mention that I am incredibly disappointed with the Knitpick Option circulars. The needles themselves are the best I have ever used, but not only do I find that they keep coming unscrewed as I am knitting, I have also had one of the plastic ends fall off of the metal clasp that screws into the needle. I can glue it back in, but it is truly a drag to have your lace knitting fall off of the needles in this fashion. I am going to write to Knitpics, but unless they have made some changes recently, I am afraid that any replacement is going to do the same thing, as most of the needles I have used from this kit have come unscrewed as I was working. Bummer.....
Having said all of this though, I have also been using their douplepointed metal needles and I absolutely LOVE them!
