Something Silky

Lemsip: check
Warm sweater: check
Puppy walked: check

Now I just need tea and sympathy! Why do I always catch the flu when I'm marking papers?

Still, I nipped out to smell the roses, so to speak, and snap a quick couple of shots of my finished scarf. I'm rather proud that I knocked over one of my Knitabulous-startis projects so quickly! On the other hand, the Summer Shimmer Scarf (The Purl Bee) is an awfully quick knit and in Knitabulous' Fifty-Fifty ("Persimmon") comes out fabulously light and silky. I did add an extra 10 stitches for further width, but otherwise, here she is:

While taking these shots, there was an energetic puppy at my feet, begging me to kick his ball.

Don't worry, as soon as I stashed the camera in my pocket and wrapped the scarf back around my neck, I kicked a few balls for him. He's looking terribly shaggy. I'm just about to look into his first hair cut. It's very difficult to tell he's a scottie right now...

Beautiful Scarf.

And I'm still in love with Wee Davie. So happy to see him without the Cone of Shame though. ;)

Feeling better yet? There is yarn in the mail.
