Our county party had its annual dinner on Saturday. For the second year we had a silent auction as a fundraiser. I contributed a couple objets d’knit.
Yarn: Plymouth Yarn DK Superwash, color turquoise (color at right is accurate). 2-1/2 skeins? I didn’t really keep track.
Pattern: Underlying Structures. I only did 2-1/2 repeats of the pattern instead of 4. I was sooo tired of knitting this thing, plus this is a good length for an indoor wool cowl; it is a little too bulky to wear doubled, as one would if it were full length, so shorter is better.
Needles: Signature circ, US#5.
When our keynote speaker arrived at the venue I went over to say hi. She complimented me on a mesh-y scarf I had knitted several years ago, saying she had struggled with trying to find a scarf to wear with what she was wearing to our event.
I immediately drew her over to the silent auction to show her the bamboo scarf.
She ended up buying the scarf, and we had a scarf-tying session before she left. (I would vote for her no matter what!)
Edited to add: this. Those colors seem to be popping up everywhere this weekend.
