Uh...what are you doing?

Picture this: I'm sitting on the couch happily knitting the baby blanket. My 3 1/2 year old niece is sitting on the other end of the couch watching (Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?) Spongebob Squarepants. I turn my head to see what she is doing and see my ball of yarn sitting there between us, patiently waiting to be made a part of this beautiful blanket, and next to it I see this: niece holding this tangled web of yarn. "Uh...what are you doing?" I ask calmly. "I'm knitting" she replies simply. Oh.

Meanwhile... The Sublime scarf is finished! "Mary has a finished object?" the crowd asks. Why yes, yes I do!

Megan taught me to bind off, Alyssa showed me how to make the fringe, and presto! It's a beautiful, luxurious, heavely scarf. LOVE it.

What is that yarn? It's so beautiful!! Is it garter stitch?

Hi Mile and thanks! I love this scarf. It's a smaller version (and more affordable for giving as a gift) of the Sublime 'Wrap'. The yarn is Sublime cashmere merino silk dk - shade 007 - in seed stitch. It's 72" not including the fringe and it feels so good and drapes beautifully.

howdy, did you know if you type in "alyssa stitch cafe" on google, your blog is the second result? an outdated page from the store site is first, but that doesn't count as it hasn't been changed since, well, forEVer!
