Ten

Rowan Silk and Kid Mohair




It must be an addiction.  Since December my knitting fingers want only the touch of soft silk/mohair yarn. Five scarves slipped off the needles by Christmas.  Then two more.  Plus one for myself.  And then another.

Yes, it's time to admit that I've tried to quit but just found myself starting another before it could be helped.











Pink and Blue exploded out of the center
of the yarn ball.  I had no idea it was there.




So this one will definitely be my last bias-loop scarf (though several very attractive skeins of yarn are buried deep in my stash). The garden had a chat with the scheduler of the Things I get to do today. Knitting season is nearly over. Ten is a good round number and is surely enough.

    1. I had a tough time with the colors. I wanted the teal, green, purple part but not the pink and blue. But it was all in the same ball of yarn. Fortunately, I found someone who liked the colors from the get-go.

  3. Mohair and silk is one delicious combination. You could switch from scarves to socks; make then to your heart's content. It takes to to make a pair.

    1. Great idea, Joanne. I'm working my way down. Mittens will probably be next.
