Between back to school meetings, nestifying my room, and research, I found time to finish Sarcelle!

Project Details ~
Pattern:: Sarcelle from one of the ladies at Knitters Anon
Needles:: 3 mm Addi Turbos
Yarn:: Malabrigo lace weight in the Glazed Carrot Colorway (2 skeins)
Modifications:: To make a skinnier version, I worked two increase sections (for 5 repeats of the pattern across each row). As for length, I kept working until I was about to run out of yarn! It gave me a scarf which is 5'5'' long.

Now all I need is some cool, apple picking weather and Sarcelle keeping my neck cozy. It'll be the perfect compliment to the Tilted Duster in the current IK. I have the yarn, the pattern, and the needles, but I think this project will wait until after I finish a couple of baby pinwheel sweaters for some new kids on the block.

We spent the weekend in Conway, NH. Swimming in the river and soaking in the final heat of summer. Since I couldn't go away without some knitting, I picked up some balls of wool and made two bowls ~ I'll post the details after they're felted.

Sarcelle turned out amazingly. You've convinced me that I need to make one out of Malabrigo laceweight, too. Gorgeous!!

absolutely amazing.
you never cease to amaze me. what great work. i'm not really sure how you manage to do such impressive research that you blow your mentor away and still manage to have enough time (and energy) to knit such amazing pieces.

i...uh...still haven't finished the log cabin inspired blocks i was working on during your visit. how will i ever reach your level of artistry?
