Being in any airplane for 6 hours instead of 3 stinks. Thankfully there were no mishaps - unlike that horrible fatal commuter plane accident in Kentucky. That was due to a combination of air traffic controller and pilot error. (Quiet prayer said here.)
I finished the Fern Lace Stole from the Little Box of Scarves:
Believe it or not - this is from a Red Heart acrylic called Luster Sheen. I need to wash it and shape it. I guess we cannot call this blocking, since it will do pretty much what it wants anyway.
The Bamboo from Alchemy Yarns has been lovely to knit - here is "Town and Country" from Knitpicks Elizabeth 1 scarf collection:
The picture does not do this yarn justice - it has a lovely variegation in the dye and is soft and lustrous. Is bamboo yarn something I can block?! Hmmm - maybe I should have thought about that before I began this project!
The pattern calls for needle size ranging from #4-6. The yarn label suggests #5. I am using #4, but I think the fabric is a bit floppy. The width is already 8" which is the finished size. Maybe I'll go down to a #3.
Aprilynne - yes we got a bit of rain. Unfortunately, our roses and Indian Hawthorne still look worse for the wear. We need about a week of rain to come close to helping the drought. Did you get any in Ft. Worth?
Sharon (Unraveled Again) - Wedding music: for the prelude I played the 1st movement of Marcello, Handel Concerto Grosso in Bb, Krebs Fantasia in F minor and for the mothers seating, Dominus Deu from the Vivaldi Gloria. The organist played the soprano line on one of the manuals.
Hey y'all - go see Unraveled Again's blog - her knitting is scrumptious as is her oboe playing!!
