Scarf Redux

Thanks to the wonderful advise of Teri and Lisa, I ripped the offending scarf apart, and proceeded to knit it on circular needles. Unfortunately, nobody warned me that if you weren't careful, you could knit it together into a circle. Okay, stop laughing, it only happened twice! Now I have a pretty good idea how to make a hat. Seriously, it's so much better now. Thanks Ladies, great save!
This is my favorite scarf to date. It's knit with a yarn called Knit One-Crochet Too Cotton Ty-Dy. The lacy stitch makes and cotton yarn makes for the perfect CA scarf. LOVE IT!!
And here's a close up of the lovely lacy stitch. Another new knitting adventure!
The last post showed the orchid that was in the exhibit room. These are photos of MY actual plant. I absolutely love the visual texture! Isn't it gorgeous?
You're probably sick of reading about flowers and scarves by now. Next post will be about quilting, I promise!

LOL! You are such a character!! I'm glad you were able to get the scarf completed...it's lovely. I love the ty-dye scarf too in cotton - what a great idea! That orchid is gorgeous...I love them and have tried to grow them to no avail. Obviously, you have the green thumb that I don't. I expect to see it (or a variation thereof) in a quilt someday.

Sorry. I did laugh but that is so the type of thing I do.

The scarf is beautiful-- and I'm not laughing... I have to stop and think about the knitting path for circular needles each time I pick them up!
