I have a problem.  It's not that I can't say "no", it's just that I don't want to.

Wanna open another bottle of wine?  Yes.

Wanna *bake some chocolate chip cookies tonight? Yes

So when my LYS got their shipment of Madeline Tosh Sock my eye caught this gorgeous light cranberry color – Wanna knit something with me?  Oh hells yes.

Those two skeins barely touched the shelf  before I grabbed and clutched them close to my chest saying, "Mine."  See, I told you I have a problem.

The wheels in my head began turning.  I imagined a wide drapy scarf I could wear either once wrapped around my neck or nice and snug – depending on my mood and the cold Jersey air.


I took out my trusty Barbara Walker Stitch Treasury (vol. 1) and found a perfect and simple lace patten.  Turns out it's such a popular stitch pattern that there was already a scarf using it called the Strangling Vines Lace Scarf on Ravelry.

What I used:
Two balls of Madeline Tosh, Amber Trinket
Needles: US 5 


I call my scarf Penelope after a cute restaurant in midtown Manhattan that serves excellent chicken meatballs.  I went there a few weeks ago with my girlfriends and just love it's quaint ambiance.

The knitting continues to pile up on my needles and I keep thinking of more and more to knit everyday.

Wanna make a mini skirt?

Yup. It's a problem.

 *When I say bake, what I really mean is "take out the ready made Nestle Toll House from the refrigerator, break off a few blocks and eat them promptly out of the oven with a huge glass of milk."

    Every body knows that today’s life seems to be expensive, nevertheless different people need money for different stuff and not every man earns big sums cash. Hence to get fast credit loans or bank loan will be a proper way out.
