Geez, it's been a busy summer. I keep meaning to blog about this and that, but having fun keeps getting in the way. Sorry!
Today, however, you get an FO. I present to you my SeaSilk Hamsa...
This is Anne Hanson's Hamsa design - a simple swaying to and fro of parallel lines of yarnovers. The pattern calls for 9.3 repeats of the pattern; I knit 11.3 repeats of the SeaSilk on size 3 needles, resulting in a blocked size of 12.5" x 47.25". I might have gotten another repeat out of the 5/8 of an ounce of leftover yarn, but I was sick of knitting this by the end of 10.3 repeats (That Sue made me go to 11.3, drat her). I love the scarf, you understand - I was just bored with knitting it by the end. I have to remember this ever-present fact about my scarf-knitting for the next time I decide to knit one, and maybe I'll let the pattern mutate and evolve as I go along. More interesting that way, I would think (says the evolutionary biologist).
Here is the modeled photo, modeled by an adult:
