Particulars: Citron, US size 6 needles, Hello Yarn handspun Wensleydale Heirloom colorway. Love the idea of it, but it's probably too small and there was not way I was going to complete one more row of that last ruffle (like 800 stitches). It's more of a kerchief. It will look great tucked into a jacket I got last year.
Next up ...
A simple K2tog, Yarn over scarf. Manos del Uruguay yarn acquired at a local, soon-to-be-closed LYS. 2 skeins, alternating rows. US size 9 needles.
I hate to see yarn shops fold. Word is that this gal, who just had a baby, just wants to do family full time. More power to her.
Do you see my McCoy pottery turtle/sink scrubby and drain plug holder? I kind of love him.
The Sweetgum cowl out of 6 skeins of Noro Kabuto. This thing is ginormous, but a quick knit on US size 13 needles. It fits down around my shoulders and extends from my elbows to my chin. Like I said, Ginormous. And warm. I think it's a good first lace, first knit in the round project. I plan to recommend it at the shop.
Ok. Neckware for this winter covered. Sheesh.
As an aside. Getting colors to look right to me on my monitor is taking up a lot of my time. Each picture in this trio has been treated differently. The tomatoes took a lot of futzing in a photo program to read true to me. The photo of the scarf using a flash looked right. The photo of the cowl without a flash read right to me. Neither of the last two photos got retouched at all. It's likely about the color of the piece since all were taken in the same spot within minutes of each other. Just a rumination.
(Is that the same thing as cud chewing? Aren't they both somehow related to ruminants... do ruminants ruminate whilst cud chewing? Is that the genesis of the term? Food for thought.)
edited to add: I looked it up. Ruminations can be both cud chewing and thinking something over. I wonder why.
