Success

 So, One leaf scarf finished in that glorious Madelinetosh A.S.A.P.
in brown.   I ordered that yarn from Webs and it came quickly.

I went to my LYS and found this Malabrigo Rasta (which is listed as an alternate on the Spud and Chloe Susan B. Anderson Leaf scarf pattern) in greens and such. 

I love the greens and hints of brown in these leaves. 
I love this pattern! 
I did it. 
I've found my new Trap scarf/potato chip/repeat knit pattern! 

I love the pattern because you make one leaf at a time and move on. 
You start a leaf with six stitches and end with 6 to begin the vine. 
Using size 15 needles. 
I'm over the moon Knit happy. 
It is like I hit a great golf shot or I 
baked an incredible cake or I saw a shooting star. 
That kind of happy. 
That is why I knit. 
For this knitters high.
 Irises are close to blossom...
Porch is open. 
Come and sit a spell!

I've ordered from that company before - and real quick delivery!!

I started this leaf pattern a few times, but my yarn was never right... Like the one you are using a lot!

I'm knitting the free pattern "Saroyan" (leaves) and then a paid pattern "Dryads" - leaves again. I love to knit leaf themed items!

I love how you have that wonderful porch to hang out and chillax on. How lovely to be able to knit there. LOVE that Rasta.

Porch-knitting is the best thing to do on a hot, lazy day. It will have to wait a couple of weeks (or longer) for that kind of weather to arrive here.

Oh I love your porch and the thought of sitting there and knitting with you is a lovely dream! I always like the results of big yarn on big needles but I can't do it myself. For some reason the needles hurt my wrists, so just the thought of using them makes me choose a smaller yarn and needles.

Your porch is to die for!!!!
Congrats on the great scarf finish. That yarn looks amazing. And yes, Webs is fast. I don't know how they do it.

What a wonderful porch! It must be warmer your way. It's a little too chilly yet for my screened porch.
Beautiful scarf! I love to fondle Rasta at the store but haven't yet bought any.

Your porch is wonderful, I wish I was near enough to come over and sit a spell and knit or crochet with you. Wouldn't that be fun? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

You have some lovely knitted makes on your blog. Visiting Ireland is on my bucket list.

Love your porch Kathy. Jealous!! Your yarn looks perfect for that pattern. The picture of your Iris is pretty -- they are still so tightly budded that at first I thought they were cattails - lol.

That's why we all knit, I think.

Beautiful job of matching pattern and yarn.
