Linen Stitch Addendum Part 2

Churchmouse brings us another addendum to the Linen Stitch Scarf. This time using Alpaca Silk from Blue Sky Alpacas.
"Sleek, sumptuous drape."
We're always looking for new ways to make our favorite Churchmouse patterns, and play with our favorite yarns and colors. This project satisfies all of those criteria! Choose your favorite color combination below — one skein each of three colors of Blue Sky Alpacas Silk — to stripe away in linen stitch. The resulting scarf boasts both yummy drape and sleekness to wear all year 'round. 
3 skeins Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca Silk (50% alpaca, 50% silk; 50g, 146 yds/133m), 1 each in 3 colors.

US 9 (5.5mm) 24-32" circular needle, or size to obtain gauge.

Today you can't get at the Alpaca Silk in the store but next week it will be in it's new home.

You can also use Metalico from Blue Sky if you want a bit more dressy/shiny scarf. As I'm writing this I think that I might send that off to Lynda to knit when she is done her current projects.

See the six shades...

Last night Beth and I watched the season finale of Grey's. I won't say anything in case some of you are saving it for the weekend. Beth called the ending 15 minutes before it happened. I don't know if I can wait for September/October to know the outcome.

I mentioned in last night's post that I messed up the website. It's all good now. Thank you Korey. I learned a very important message. Don't add anything on the weekend just in case. :)

I'm home now and going to get some serious knitting done tonight. I haven't done much this week and the Summerspun cardigan isn't going to knit itself.

And I will leave you with a link to Ravelry for a cute summer cardigan. Brynna from Chic Knits.
