2009 is here

Here we are, 16 days into 2009. We received very few scarves during the holiday season. Though we did get a nice shipment from one person who sent some nice crocheted scarves, but before I get you totally confused, these were not one of our stitchers. I think one or two of our stitches sent scarves.



I'm nearly done with the Mini-Mochi scarf. By the way, the yarn is now available through Yarn Market and Jimmy Beans Wool One site was a few cents cheaper, but I didn't check shipping costs on either. This yarn is so very soft. The pattern is easy;
using two balls of yarn, pull from the outside of one and the inside of the other. I used a cable cast on and cast on 46 stitches. Slip the first stitch purlwise, then purl 1, knit one across. Complete two rows with the first ball of yarn then use the second ball for the next two rows. When you switch colors, allow the color you're dropping to lay to the left, pull up the yarn you're picking up slip the first stitch then using the new yarn purl the second stitch. This is a picture when it was less than half done, but the colors just contine to make an amazing scarf. It's currently about 4' long, and I think I have enough yarn to do another 6 inches or so.

May 2009 be kind to you all. I hope you're all busy knitting lots of wonderful projects.
