I bit the bullet

and cast on for the Dipped Infiinty Scarf. Thank you so much for so many helpful comments on different cast on techniques. In the end, I did a long tail cast on holding two different balls of yarn so I didn't have to worry about measuring or not having a long enough tail.


I've only just started but I'm already loving the subtle look of holding the different shades together. Can you see the two different colors in the photo? I can't wait for the color changes to start!

I received a coop order today as well. It's called Winter Solstice Sky from Mosaic Moon. Two different blues, silvery gray and natural:


I think I'm going to make a zipped hoodie for Baby Starfish using the natural skein for trim. Mosaic Moon is definitely one of my favorite indie dyers. Morwenna has such an eye for color and she dyes SO MANY different colorways.

Pretty - lately I've been attracted to blues, never really was before....

Yes, I can see the two colors, can't wait to see it further along...

Thanks for stopping by...


I love your idea for the long tail cast on. I would have never have thought of that. Thanks.

The bluey yarn looks interesting - it'll be good to see when it's knitted up, to see how it looks then :-)

Beautiful yarn. Makes me wish once again that I knew how to knit.

You have the nicest projects lined up! The one on the needles is gorgeous looking with that rich colored yarn and the various shades of blue on the other yarns is perfectly yummy! happy knitting to you! I am working on finishing up a doll's sweater that my mom started. I just have a tiny bit to do and it will be finished. :)
