A while ago I went to a knitting convention with [livejournal.com profile] kethryvis and splurged on some lace weight 70% merino wool/30% possum yarn (that's right -- possum). It has been the most pleasant thing that I have ever knit with and gave me a chance to try a new lace stitch -- vine stitch.

My new awesome possum scarf is blocking on a towel on my living room floor and it makes me squee with joy to see a project this fun to the very end. Even my cats are being reverent (so far) and going around it.

I've already ordered more possum yarn....I'm such a dork.

I just finished my knitting project that I'm going to give to my yoga teacher, Roxanne, who is having a baby very soon. (Now back to my original knitting project for the year, a very time-consuming and slow going wrap in silk-wool blended yarn.)

The fabric for the trim is a remainder from Hart's Fabric of cotton flannel with colorful sheep on clouds and I think it's adorable. The yarn itself is heavy weight cream colored velour knit with size 9 needles in basket stitch.
