When Steve gifted me two skeins of String Theory DK for Solstice (from his and my favorite sorta-kinda-local yarn shop, KnitWit), it came with the polite insistence that I make something for myself. Well, well. I couldn't ignore a request like that from the man who buys me beautiful yarn, now could I? Exactly. I've knit with this yarn before, on Annabel's baby blanket, for one, so I know what a dream it is not only to knit with but to hold next to your skin, as it ends up wrapped half around me at nap time each day with her in my arms.
I landed on the Summer Scarf, a wonderful pattern that was easy to memorize and became my go-to knitting this past month or so. And I know, it has a funny name for me and our neck (ha!) of the woods, yes. These pictures were taken last week after our most recent snowstorm, the very morning after I had cast off. I will confess that I was most excited about the snow and the cold days that followed because I knew I'd have this lovely warmth wrapped around my neck. It feel so good, and I have every intention of wearing right on into summer. Maybe I'll even take it off my neck and properly block it. Then again, maybe I won't. I'm pretty comfortable with it right where it is.
