I’ve started on a quick project – a neckwarmer scarf for a friend for Christmas. I’m using a skein of Aslan Trends Del Sur, which is a super-bulky thick-and-thin merino. The pattern is Pidge Podge!, a free pattern on Ravelry. It’s just a simple rib, but I like how the thick-and-thin yarn is making an interesting texture. It’s like a flowing river. And it’s knitting up really fast. As soon as I’m done with this one, I’ll be starting another one. You’ve got to love those quickies.
And look at the great stuff I got from Chris, for being one of the whiners winers winners in Chaos’ birthday contest: yarny prizes, a tape measure, chocolate, music, notepads, and all kinds of black cat goodies, including a grow-your-own-black-cat kit.
I’m still puzzling over why the “Cuddly Pom Kit” title is printed in red letters that look like they’re dripping blood. Somehow bloody and cuddly don’t seem to go very well together. But maybe that’s just me.
