These are the prettiest apricots I’ve seen this year. And they’re just delicious — sweet, a little tart, and perfect in every way. They come from Red Jacket Orchards in Geneva, NY; not exactly local, but in the same state, at least.
So, I didn’t begin another Baktus. Not this week, at least. This is Stephen West’s Herbivore. The yarn is String Theory Selku, which is a 50/50 Merino and Silk blend. The color is called Earthquake. I have a couple of skeins that I got at last year’s Knitters Review Retreat, and I don’t think this scarf will take more than one. I know, I’ll save the other one for a Baktus!
