Not Lace. Not Cables.

The Spin-Stitch Scarf is a great new pattern from Churchmouse Yarns. Our shipment hasn't arrived yet but if you need to get started you can purchase the pattern on Ravelry.
Not lace, but so lace-like! Not cabled, but twisted by ‘spinning’ a cluster of stitches 180°!

Knit in Rowan Kidsilk Haze, a lace-weight mohair with a strong silk core, the blocked fabric is gossamer fine between the twists. And the surface has such a lovely undulating texture and motion. Twists along the edges create deep, three-dimensional scallops. Smaller scarf fits easily inside a jacket, larger version is wider and longer, and can be wrapped round and round. Dressy or casual, in neutrals or jewel tones, this accessory is one you'll reach for again and again!

You need 2 balls of Kidsilk Haze for the small scarf and 4 balls for the large version. Both versions are knit on 5mm needles.

Lucy visited the vet today and got the go ahead to travel to Myrtle Beach. They're leaving early tomorrow morning. We took a before picture - she weighed 73lbs today. They'll be home in 7 weeks. She is going to be a lot bigger when we see her again.
