As I said on the Ravelry page,
I was fascinated immediately when I saw this pattern and HAD to knit it. I did only 2-1/2 repeats, thought, mainly because I was sooo sick of knitting it. For some reason — probably because it required actual THOUGHT! and PAYING ATTENTION! — I dreaded picking it up to work on it. Don’t get me wrong; this is a fairly straightforward pattern, it’s just that paying attention while knitting is not necessarily my strong suit. The shorter length works well, though; it drapes nicely around the neck. (And it sold for a nice price at the fundraiser.)
The fundraiser in question was last May. Like I said in another post, thank goodness for Ravelry or I would never remember what I knit.
Like this scarf, for instance.
This couple skeins of Madil bamboo had been in my stash for years. I had attempted to knit it several times but never found quite the right pattern. I finally lit upon Amy Singer’s Montego Bay, and it was perfect.
It also went into the silent auction back in May. When our guest speaker walked in, I went over to say hello. She complimented me on the scarf I was wearing (don’t remember now what it was, but I’m pretty sure it was something I had knit), and I had a brainstorm..
I dragged her over to the silent auction table and
twisted her arm coerced persuaded encouraged her to bid on my scarf… because it would look PERFECT with the shirt she was wearing. And because she is such a good sport, she bid on it and won it.
When she is running for governor in 2018 (we beg!) I hope it will bring her luck!
