Striped Illusion Scarf...
I recently got "Knitting New Scarves", which is a wonderful collection of scarves using interesting techniques in unusual ways. So I started the Striped Illusion Scarf using the same softball yarn I used for my red/tan hat. (as well as the same yarn I used for the Camisole from Poetry in Stitches). Its knitted all purl on one side and all knit on the other and the color changes are using basic Intarsia techniques.
Its a perfect project for a lazy weekend of laundry and movie-knitting.
Speaking of perfect, I awoke Sunday morning to the First snow of the season. The air crisp and the sky greyish white to match the snow and the streets, quiet. Followed in early afternoon with the sound of a snow shovel easily scrapping the sidewalk, clearing the light fluffy snow from the sidewalks.
The snow was melted and gone by night fall but it was a nice intro to winter.
