a little this and that

This is my third Koigu Linen Stitch Scarf  AKA  My Spring Linen Stitch Scarf!  Again I used Koigu (KPPPM) and again totally enjoyed the fiber and pattern.
The Koigu Pastel colorways used for my Spring Scarf are P539, P130 and P454.  The plan was to complete this project in time for Spring but I was side tracked with other knit temptations and just finished it on September 9th.

This 3rd Linen Stitch Scarf isn't my last as I still have "The Twin's" to knit for Christmas and I can hardly wait to see the lovely Koigu greys and blues melt together on that one.

Are any of you familiar with Rowan's Kidsilk Haze Stripe yarn?  The striped pattern is a delight to knit and will make an easy to wear scarf/shoulder shawl.  I'm using the pattern on back of the yarn band for the base of this project, but cast on 120 stitches instead of 51 stitches. The pattern is called "1 Ball Scarf"....guess I'll call mine "3 Ball Scarf" as that's how much larger I plan to knit mine.
A great project to simply knit enjoy  a little here and there.  This one is kept in my project bag at all times.
Plans are in order to start my Garden Party Shawl.  Look at the color selections! And yes, more Koigu...aren't they AWESOME colors!

Stay tuned as "The Stole" will be completed in the next couple of days! Lots of knitting involved in this one, but totally an enjoyable knit.

I can't believe that you are knitting the same Kidsilk Haze scarf I am in the same colorway and the same size, what a coincidence!
