And it's mine all mine till the day I die!

I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

My Great Adirondack scarf is off the needles. So soft, so non wool! I gave the yarn specs in an earlier post. Not to be like
Sr. Marie or anything, but I only say it once. She used to say that. I know now she was lazy, like me!

I used to skiens of the luscious soft stuff. Now I want the color not to fade...ever.

I cast on 66 sts and worked Row 1 Knit
Row 2 KNit one,* Knit one, YF slip 2, YB K1*
I knit it on big fat turbo's.

It is in my Garter book and is called the ribbon stitch.
I actually prefer the side that looks like it is ribbed.

Im wearing it in the house. I'll wear it outside the house too!

Up next: bamboo knitting on rosewood straights.
Similar to a clapotis.
Stockinette, but knitting in back of the stitch before and after those that I will pull in the end.

I'm really enjoying all the Thanksgiving meme's going around.

Today I am thankful for having a phone that does NIGHT MODE and doesnt ring while I sleep in the day!

Very nice colors and looks like a fun stitch, too. Enjoy wearing it.

Rosewood needles ~ ohhhh and ahhhhh and oh la la! Lucky you to be casting on a new project AND casting on Rosewood needles! You should buy a lottery ticket too, as you are really blessed today! Please post some pictures of your Rosewoods & Yarn soon!!!

Bravo for that great scarf too! I love the colors!

Kathy - it looks great. I love the picture. You look like Tool Time's neighbor who never shows his face. : ) I'm so glad you knit something for yourself. Good for you!

What a lovely scarf and gorgeous color! Bamboo on rosewood next--thaqt sounds positively sinful. I did get a shiver down my spine when you said "the phone doesn't ring." Someday, if you want to hear it, I will tell you my story of the ONE time I turned off the phone.
