Rent's been up for Five Days
Easter was a good day here. Except for the still knocked up part. Girly had a blast looking for eggs and the cat followed the basket every where it went. He really wanted that string type stuff at the bottom. Apparently it makes a lovely snack. No worries, he went without, but he gave it the old college try!
It's also been finishing time around here. I finished another Flapper Girl's Twist and a couple of other little hats. I ripped back a couple of old projects too. I just wasn't happy enough with them to finish the knitting.
This is one of the projects that got finished. I like! A simple scarf using the Porcupine Stitch from Barbara Walker's Second Treasury. Reversible and very easy to memorize. The yarn I used is gorgeous! I'm going to have to get another skein just for me.
Here is "Silk Spines".
1 Skein: Colinette Yarns Taos - 100% Silk in their Madras shade. Chosen by Girly while at Threads in Time in Thunder Bay.
3.25mm (US 3) needles - also selected by Girly from my needle collection.
Stitch holder or one extra 3.25mm (US 3) needle

Repeat these 9 rows for 12 full repeats and end the 13th repeat on Row 2. Set this half aside and cast on 28 sts for the second half.
Repeat the steps for the first half also ending the 13th repeat on Row 2. Graft the two halves together (Knitty Tutorial) then weave in ends and block.
Someone liked. She pretended not to for a bit, but once I threatened to keep for myself, she changed her mind, posthaste.
She wore it the next day too. She decided that it needs to be worn like this since it isn't really a scarf. It's a skinny top.
My little fashionista.
