I Couldn't Wait!

Unfortunately not too much knitting getting done this weekend, although other good things instead. Saw Finding Neverland which I LOVED...I haven't cried so much in ages. Definitely worth seeing, I think. I love it when a movie makes you want to find out more...I want to re-read Peter Pan, and also would love to know more about the author. But, enough of that...here's what has happened on the needles.

The ruffle scarf is neverending! I'm using Jaeger Luxury Tweed, and honestly, that yarn goes on FOREVER! I was reluctant to pick up Karis, as it would just mean prolonging the scarf. AND, I swore I wouldn't start Clapotis. Well, technically, I didn't. I just wound one skein of the yarn and made a swatch. That doesn't count does it? I'm using ArtYarns Supermerino in colour 105. This yarn is lovely- it is so soft, and also really springy and bouncy...I can't wait to get started. I don't usually make a gauge swatch (well, I haven't really needed to), but as I purchased 6 skeins, leaving me, about 15 feet to spare, I wanted to make sure I was on target. I hit the gauge specified in the pattern, so fingers crossed! I've read about a few people making it in the same yarn who need 8 skeins. My budget doesn't stretch as well as the yarn! Here are the pictures.

Beautiful yarn waiting to be wound...

Supermerino Yarn

The swatch..this is so nice to knit with, I just wanted to keep knitting the swatch!

Supermerino Swatch

Hopefully more finished projects next time...seeing Karis take shape (slowly) has inspired me to finally weave in the ends and block the Maki scarf from Rowan Mag 36.
