So I knit a scarf for Ali & then went into a panic- what if it was too short (yarn shortage- one ball pulled from the stash, the other 2 shipped from Wildflower Yarns in Manhattan, KS...the last two Kennita had: she totally saved the day)? So, the next day I bought more yarn & cast on a new scarf. Turns out, they're exactly the same length because scarf #2 is so chunky that it doesn't need an extra wrap around the neck. It's the Cinder pattern from Jared Flood and it's made from Rowan cocoon (80% wool/20% kid mohair) in Tundra (muted gray-brown). I love it. Such an easy knit (3 days with other things going on)...just one or two cables every 8 rows in bulky yarn.
That's Ms. Anderson, Auden's teacher. I'm your worst parent nightmare, obviously. Who makes their kid's teacher model a scarf? I owe you other Sarah. Of course, she modeled scarf #1 too (see below)! It's the Reversible Cable Scarf from Knits Men Want (if I were going to gender tag this one, I'd not go with the male one, but whatever) knit up in Rowan Cashsoft 4ply which is 57% extra fine merino wool, 33% microfiber, & 10% cashmere in gray. It took awhile to knit- like weeks. Not an easy knit (one or two cables every other row), but I'd absoultely do it again. Soon.
And, that's Auden's class minus him (voluntarily hop in front of the lens? NEVER) & one more. And, how amazing is it that I get a Jaryn (far right) hug every once in awhile? The most. Hope you have a great week! Love, Sara
