August’s single skein…

I didn’t even open the Single Skein Club package while I was camping; the allure of the ruffle was strong. But I have now opened it so I can show you, gentle reader.

It’s an ingenious lacy scarflet by Sivia Harding. The yarn is Mirasol Tupa which is 50/50 merino and silk, in a deep auburn. It looks almost like chocolate. I love this yarn; I used it for my Hugs and Kisses Cabled Fingerless Mitts. It’s great to knit with.

A little scrabble tile Twisted yarn ball pendant.

Sweet! This may be my next project after the ruffle tank is off the needles. We’ll have to see which way my whims turn.

In other news, WordPress changed my theme to Coraline from Cutline, which is being phased out. If you came by and there was nothing on the sidebar, my apologies! Widgets have now been restored. Thanks for visiting!

  1. How pretty! And I love the scrabble tile pendant!

  2. What a gorgeous chocolate brown! Makes me feel the need for a little chocolate myself. ;-)

  3. Looks like a good month for the Single Skein Club!

    Can’t wait to see the pictures of the finished scarf.

    Cute pendant. Everyone will know you’re a knitter with that one.

  4. that pendant is sooooo cute. (i’m a crazy scrabble fan, in addition to being a knitter!)

  5. Really cool pendant. I love silky Mirasol Tupa and have in my stash for a sweater–Christmas gift for my teen. Enjoy knitting the lace scarve. Sivia was teaching a bead knitting class at Twisted when I was there over the weekend. She was too involved so I didn’t have a chance to chat with her. Instead, I enjoyed hanging out with Tricia of Tanglewood.

  6. Chocolate is always a good color in my book. Earlier this year I made a Cedar Leaf Shawlette out of Tupa, and I loved working with it!
