Hey guys,

This is the first entry I have made. I hope I'm doing it right. I fell in love with a cool pattern this weekend. I am headed to L.A. in a few weeks and can't take my Addi Turbo's on the plane. Ugh!!!! Since I am using them on a sweater, I set out to find something else that I can use the plastics on. I went to the local knit shop and the owner walked up and said I had to see this......It was a scarf......(I know, I know, how boring!!! )But this one caught my eye. It looks like basketweave....the direction at which you stitch the scarf creates an interlocking that looks like the whole piece is woven.....I am knitting it out of Noro Silk Garden, so the varigation in the yarn will create a blocks of color in the scarf.....I chose the brown/purple/apple green combo...(that doesn't sound so good when I write it out...LOL.......the one in the photo is Silk Garden too but it was a little too Screaming Rainbow Queer for me....I am in Oklahomo, ya know!!!!!.............After looking at the picture in the pattern book and comparing it to what she had done...I realized that they had blocked it for the photo.....It loses it's texture when you do that.....so I won't be doin' that! I am going to try to attatch a photo of the first couple of rows and let you see the start of it....If you are interested in finding the pattern let me know and I will get the name of the book. I enjoy reading about you guys. Keep the info coming.

Hey Gabriel, You are rocki

Hey Gabriel,

You are rocking with your knitting. Keep at it.
Silk Garden is a great choice for that kind of pattern, and when in doubt with color, always go with good ole number 88. In the tan family - knits up handsomely. Rather than block it, give it a gentle steam if you need to just even out the stitches; just don't let the iron touch it.

Enjoy the trip to California.
