FO Post: Triinu Scarf


Triinu is done, at long last!  I had such a fun time with the last few hours of this project.  The two edgings are very simple, but they really make the yarn shine.  This scarf is so soft and light.


Yesterday I stayed home from work to work on finishing up a hat I'm designing, which is now blocking in my studio.  It was really nice to have a relaxed day at home, and I got a lot done on the knitting/blogging front.  Working 40 hours a weeks has seriously cut down on my time for those two things, so it felt sort of decadent to take pictures of FOs, update Ravelry, finish my hat, and write blog posts for the majority of the day!


On a different note, Tuesday night we had a bit of a scare: Lumberjack and I were driving home, only to be cut off by two big fire engines heading past us towards our apartment complex.  When we got there, all of the roads in the complex were lined with fire engines, cop cars, ambulances.  Turns out it was a little overkill, and that a small kitchen fire had been contained two buildings down from ours.  Still nice to know that police and fire respond so quickly to even small events.


Annnd because I am who I am, I couldn't resist a few silly pictures with Triinu.  I haz a bonnet!

Pattern: Triinu Scarf, by Nancy Bush, from Knitted Lace of Estonia
Yarn: Artyarns Cashmere 1, most of a 510-yard skein
Needles: Size 4 US Addi Turbo Lace
Modifications:  I added two extra repeats of the center pattern.  Otherwise, none.

Cory, you knit so fast it sometimes scares me.
