i promised i'd be talking about knitting, and it's time to update my ravelry projects.  i finished this wool scarf at the beginning of summer and despite my bad timing (wool scarf + summer heat) i have worn it quite a bit over the last couple months.  i will say i am excited for the cooler weather to use this scarf for the intended purpose - to keep me warm!

i really loved this pattern even though i had to get used to paying attention to what i was knitting.  i'm in the habit of knitting mindless rows of stockinette for sweaters.  for months, this project went everywhere with me.  the stitch pattern was easy to memorize after a couple rows, but i printed out one of these just in case i'd forget or lose my place.  i used my all-time favorite lion brand fishermen's wool.  i love that it's more of a dk weight and that you can get so much, or all of a project done on just one skein.  this scarf took a little less than a skein.

two more unrelated things: simple is an understatement - a hairstyle that literally only took me 20 seconds, and a Bonnie Raitt cover that I know my mom's gonna love.

  13. I love the neckerchief. I made the same in light grey with rowan lima and use it all the time. I also love your top. Did you make it or buy it? It's so great.

  14. I am so obsessed with this hairstyle now - I have worn it for four days straight! Thank you for posting it :) Awesome scarf too - totally going to try this with fishermen's wool. I like that it's a little bulkier and fluffier than the original, and such a great color.

    I LOVE your dress - I'm guessing this is one you made. Have you considered selling patterns? If you do tell me because I'm totally buying all of them! If not, are you planning to sell this type of dress in your shop anytime soon?

    Is yours more puffed up than the one on the pattern website because its not blocked? I love the puff! And I totally intend on making this...
