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.
