My Carlisle

Carlisle Scarf by Craig Rosenfeld

Carlisle 7It’s finished! This scarf is another project that was a pleasure from beginning to end. It flowed off the needles, and was done before I knew it. It spent some time on the New London Ferry to and from Maine, and came home to be finished, tidied, blocked, and photographed.

The trip to Maine was a whirlwind turnaround – it was fun (Judy and I are masters at having fun on a road trip) and crazy (rocky weather plus a boatload of middle schoolers on their way to Mystic Seaport equals a dizzy Jane) and interesting (I’ve never seen a big college campus after final exams – it looked like little trash riots had broken out everywhere). And when the trip was over, Rachel was home.

Persimmon Update

I’m so grateful to everyone who has downloaded Persimmon! I hope that when you all start your projects you’ll keep in touch. I’d love to know how your knitting is going; if you have any questions, comments or suggestions; and if you are enjoying the tilting and the knit-knit-knitting. I’ve just started knitting another one – a quick gift in Sundara Fingering Merino Cashmere.

The other day I had an out-of-the-blue fear that I’d made a huge mistake in the pattern – and that everyone would be casting on a completely wrong number of stitches. I checked. It’s all good. Knit forward.
