ok, so I've been looking for a stitch and/or scarf pattern that I like to make a somewhat lacy scarf out of some Misti Alpaca yarn that I have. "a scarf?" you say? yes, a scarf. I figured out last winter that in all my knitting for other people (it was gifts at the time), I have somehow wound up with no scarves for myself. the knitter and teacher of knitting. oops. so anyway I've started a couple of things but none of them have clicked. that's the thing too - if you do it for long enough you get a feel for what's working and what's not. these aren't. maybe I just need to bump up a couple of needle sizes and do something super-open. it's alpaca - it's going to be warm regardless of what I do. oh and there are also five skeins of cashmere waiting to be knit up. and Christmas knitting . . .
the search continues . . .
