Misty Casted On!

My Jo Sharp Mohair *finally* (um, yes, after five whole business days - geez, am I the most impatient yarn a-waiter?) arrived - and Misty Garden was cast on today! Over the course of the last half of The Apprentice, I was able to knit four repeats. This scarf has immediate satisfaction - I could memorize the pattern, see the outcome, and watch the color changes of the yarn all at once! This yarn is actually quite nice - soft (and not itchy), shedding is really minimal, and the color is oh-so-elegant. My only concern may be that the 38 stitch length may almost exactly replicate the length between color changes, so I seem to have fairly uneven distribution of color - so far. But I will work a few more repeats to see if it changes a bit, before (shhhh - I almost said the "R" word!). Whaddya think?* Check out the progress on my blog, if you wish.

* I guess to tell me what you think, you would like to actually see a photo - well, I am having issues uploading photos to this site, so anyone who can tell me how to do it - thanks!
