Now you see it..&..now you don't

I'm ripping....ripping...ripping...or frogging...but I think frogging means that you're going back to a certain point and then beginning again??

Well, that's not the case here....The Hawaiian Bag Knitter has a beautiful scarf....ruffles....colorful....
oh so pretty....

Perfect if you're going to dress up and go to a tea party at the Kentucky Derby.

After careful consideration (all of two minutes)...we agreed it had to come apart.

So, ....after eating this.....
She's a great cook,
roasted vegetable soup
&
hot apple cider with rum
she cooks, mother of five, creative and fit as a yoga instructor (I wish she'd eat a dozen donuts every now and then) ......she made me this great dinner, so while we ate - I started ripping.


who can wear
seven skeins
around their
neck???
In the mean time she's going to start looking for a pattern for herself and will reknit all this beautiful Noro into something more wearable.

Potato chip ruffled scarfs are fun....if you're a pole dancer.

My cowl...it continues...it's going to be a winner - at least that's what I'm telling myself as I knit -
again I threw caution to the wind and cast on without checking gauge....it's a cowl, if it doesn't fit - I'll look for someone with a skinny neck. 

Have a great day friends...I'll be back soon,,,,I want to talk about candles...do you use them??

Yep -- sometimes the yarn looks better on the shelf than it does around your neck! :)

I think I'm going to make a cowl after I get done with my scarf. Yours looks lovely!
