Whew! Finally, a moment break from school and reading. I am really trying to get into a groove with studying and reading (oh, my goodness, the reading). I even had time to start a new project.
It also twists like a beast. It just seems to want to get up all over itself, and makes the striping a bit frustrating and slow. The roughness of the Silk Garden makes it "catch" on the navy yarn. I find myself constantly pulling the two yarns away from each other. I've knit other stripey things, and I know the standard tricks to keep yarn behaving-- turning the needles the same way, bring the yarn up and over the previous yarn--but these are just not working together well. I've decided to enjoy the process, though, and not worry about the product. I don't need the scarf yet anyway. It has been in the 80s here lately, with high humidity. (Didn't anyone tell Mother Nature it is October?)
Of course, even though I haven't had enough time to actually knit much, I have shopped for yarn. First, some Lorna's Laces Limited Edition.
And then there's this!
