Me. Me. Me.

I recently tackled a project that has been on my to knit list for over a year. Two woman from my knit group, Kris and Barbara, gave me Exquisite Little Knits by Iris Schreier & Laurie J. Kimmelstiel and Art Yarns Super Merino Colorway 105 for a wedding gift.

First of all, I love that I get yarn for a wedding gift. This was a simple knit that I did for myself. All me. Me. Me. Me. It only took me a year and a half to get to it. At this rate, the knit list is obviously going to grow a lot faster than projects are finished.

For this yarn, I choose a pattern from the book, The Flying V scarf. I have knit up two of Iris Schreier's patterns. She has really cool designs - ingenious and fun with just enough challenge to keep you interested.

The yarn is so yum and squishy and soft. The scarf stretched quite a bit with use. I wonder if it is the yarn or the pattern? No matter...I love them both all the same.

Very cool. It's sort of like Jaywalker socks but in a scarf version. And, how does the husband feel about yarn for a wedding gift? Just asking. ;-)

Ohhh, it's very, very NICE! yeah, lots of garter in a soft yarn DOES stretch a lot. But it's still great.

I think I admired this when I saw you wearing it, no? But it's beautiful regardless! And yarn for a wedding present sounds very appropriate to me. Wish I had thought of it.

Having seen this scarf in action, I can attest to its loveliness and yumminess.

Is there anything Artyarns can't do?

I think not.

i'd like the answer to Carole's question... how did the hubby react when the wedding gift was opened and out sprang yarn?

I clicked on the top picture and it got so big I thought I was going to be able to walk down the squishy knitted road.

Very nice! I love that colorway. Nice picture too. I love when people take artsy pictures of their work.

I've gotten thru row 15 of the Flying V and am STUCK. What does she mean "On the other side,..." The other side of what? Right now I have a little triangle hanging down from the needle with 9 extra stiches sticking out the side with the working yarn. I'd love some advice. Carolyn R
