This is precisely why I carry knitting with me at all times. You never know when you'll be required to spend hours in the ER. Besides my casted leg, last week's visit to the ER had the positive outcome of allowing me the time to frog back a major section of pink pooling in my Hitchhiker Scarf. Here's the FO:
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino
Needles: US 5
Thoughts: I think the design is brilliant. Very easy pattern produces super sproingy fabric in an interesting shape, when knit in sockweight yarns like Cherry Tree Hill, Wollmeise, Koigu, Claudia Hand Paints, Colinette Jitterbug, or anything made from a Louet gems type yarn. Don't worry, even the sock yarns with under the required amout of length makes an acceptable drapy scarf. Mine ended up with 36 points instead of the pattern's 41:
This weekend Blogless Marsha will be hitchhiking with me, hers in Koigu, mine in Jitterbug, as we get together to enjoy the Pink Martini concert.
