stitch ya neck out: vintage velvet on the road

vintage velvet on the road



Finally, a photo of Vintage Velvet, as knit for me by Kiri. Here I am, finally having gotten my husband to take a take a (barely) daylight photo, outside of Marfa, Texas... where it's actually cold enough to wear handknits.

I LOVE this scarf. It is perfectly knit, supersoft, and even a little sophisticated. The name Touch Me is accurate... everyone wants to pet this scarf.

Kiri was also generous enough to send along some sari silk yarn and some corn silk (ingeo) yarn. Who knew they made yarn out of corn silk? Well, I'm sure a lot of people, but not me. Ha.

Thank you Kiri! And thanks to Jacqueline and Kris for organizing this swap. It's been hard to explain to non-knitters ("you're knitting a scarf for a stranger?"), but it's been pure knit-geek fun.

Knit-Geek fun is exactly what it feels like. Describing this exchange with non-knitters is an educating process. And I love every bit of it, especially reading about it.

You mean your husband actually takes pix of your knits for you? Lucky gal! Mine totally runs the other direction. How far he runs is directly proportional to how many curse words were uttered while knitting and how many times I had to frog something before completion ;) How'd you train yours to do that? (Sorry, majorly envious over here... sigh)

Glad you got to wear the scarf! It looks so cute on you. :)
