4 Sleeps. Yikes!

Classic Elite's latest Web-Letter just arrived in my inbox. The Diagonal Summer Scarf looks great and is easy to knit.
We couldn't resist re-knitting this scarf pattern from two years ago in newer colors of Bella Lino. The colors blend so beautifully!

The simple, reversible scarf is easily customizable to whatever width and length you want. Work your scarf in one color or many – since all Bella Lino shades have a flax-colored base, contrasting colors will blend beautifully (the scarf shown uses four different colors). Or work more visible stripes in the tone-on-tone, almost solid colors of Fortuna, Bella Lino's sister yarn.
This is Cathy's scarf that is hanging in the store. I hope she forgets that I have it :)

58% Linen, 26% Viscose, 16% Cotton
5-5½ sts/inch on US 4-5 (3.5-3.75 mm) needle
164 yards/50 gram ball
hand wash cool, dry flat
17 striping shades

Bella Lino is a lightweight yarn that creates an airy fabric with long, harmonious stripes. Great for warmer weather, each of the shades in the summery palette has a linen-hued base.

The store is a mess but Cathy will straighten things out Friday afternoon after we leave for the show.

Here is the floor plan for the Frolic. We're in Kobayashi Hall, booth 10.

I've made it to the final colour on my shawl. It's knitting time. I might get it finished.
