A Vacation Scarf for the Mum

Romi Hill just released two new patterns in her collection, 7 Small Shawls Year Four Friends.  It was named for an online friend of hers, Teresa, who likes to knit a special scarf to take on her yearly vacation.  I’m getting ready to go on a road trip soon and thought it would be a perfect project to take along with me.  Even more exciting would be to see if I can bring it home finished and ready for blocking.

I can picture this scarf worn worn with a gray shirt and black slacks, an outfit for spring.

And, of course, I couldn’t resist doing a provisional cast-on and knitting a few rows…….just because, well, it is lace and it has been a while since I’ve knit up anything lacy.

Wednesday wouldn’t be complete without going on a Yarn Along with Ginny and her peeps.  After watching an old Sherlock Holmes movie this week with Christopher Plummer, I’ve been in the mood for some Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
