I know what you're thinking… scarves!?
It's July 23rd and it's 80 degrees out but I just couldn't help myself. Part of it is Craig's fault. When Patricia and I went to visit his store in Philly he had a great collection of scarves on his middle table. Since Monday, I just couldn't get scarves off the brain. Then one of Trish's newer knitters came into the shopping working on a beautiful dropped stitch scarf in the Manos Silk Blend and then I knew I wanted one, too!
But why start one scarf when you can start two?
I've had a few balls of the Road to China light in my stash for a while and didn't know what to make of it. A few clicks through Ravelry's pattern browser and we have thethe Midwest Moonlight scarf from Scarf Style. (Ravelry Link)
Both scarves have provided a nice break in between working a summery top on US2s even if I am getting weird looks from people walking back in tank tops and flip flops. "Hah!" I say to them, my neck will be far warmer this fall and winter ;-)
