Another gloomy day, not enough light inside to make decent photos of the yarn - I'm either going to have to get/make a light box, or I'm going to have to move to sunnier climes. Since sunnier climes are likely to make wool less desirable, I'm going to go for the light box. As soon as I can.
Until a sunnier day or a day full of monetary fulfillment, I am unable to show you the first scarf I made for Mitch Carlson's benefit auction - the photos all just look like a long dark blob.
So for now, here's the second scarf, currently a WIP*.
For the sock knitters among you, this is the same stitch used for the Leyburn Socks, but I reversed it so that the caught-up yarn travels over the stockinette side, rather than the reverse stockinette side. I did this because I think the yarn (a discontinued KnitPicks merino) looks prettier on the smooth side.
And because I can do what I want.
I think it kind of looks like all sorts of little excited people, jumping in the air and cheering Mitch on - which seems appropriate. If you want your own tiny squad of soft woolly cheerleaders, come bid on this scarf at the Benefit Auction (and yummy Spaghetti Dinner) on October 18, at the Kraus-Hartig VFW in Spring Lake Park. There will be all sorts of other wonderful things on auction there, so it will definitely be worth attending!
* Work In Progress, for the non-knitters among you. That would be you, Mom.
