Red Scarf Project
Yesterday was the first red scarf lunch at work. There were three of us for this first meeting and we were all starting our scarves. For mine, I used size 5 circular needles and cast on 88 stitches (since most college students in their first year this year were born in 1988), joined in the round, knit 3 rows of seed stitch, and then switched to stocking knit. I was hoping that the seed stitch would keep the bottom from rolling up but so far it still is... maybe I didn't do enough rows. I'm using Red Heart Soft and Red Heart Super Saver, alternating every row to produce stripes.
Last night Max and I went to my friend Alex's surprise party. He was totally surprised! His girlfriend Natalia made dinner and the birthday cake. Everything was yummy, I tried everything and was just careful not to have too much. Alex and Slav did not hold back at all - a great compliment to the chef I think! Alex liked the card and the present we got for him.
Since I was out last night, I did not get a chance to work on the Cambridge jacket.
Limedragon asked, "What color are you knitting Cambridge in?"
Not something I would have picked for myself or to even knit with but it's all about the recipient, right? I'm using Lion Brand Woolease in Cocoa. Every time I pick it up to knit, it hits me - this is the perfect the colour is for this recipient. I'm pretty sure that person doesn't read this blog but just in case, better not to say.
