Stress Knitting

It’s one of those weeks, when there’s too much life for the hours that are there. In other words, I need my knitting. It’d better be pretty simple, because it’s just not a good thing to add to the stress by having to frog stuff.

So, I worked on this birthday present for a family member:

and started the Carlsbad scarf in Alison Hyde’s Wrapped in Comfort. It’s done with beautiful bombyx silk from Ellen’s Half-Pint Farms, a score that I made at Stitches West this year. I tried two other patterns that didn’t work because it made it look like tie dye (the pattern repeated too perfectly) but this is going to be very nice…and it’s very easy, so it’s good for my nerves!
