Simple Love

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind! We were in Chicago for four days for a wedding, then went to Colorado to work on our big day next month. Overall, it was a wonderful trip..

Here's Scott and I on the shore of Lake Michigan just before the wedding ceremony (with my latest knitting project).

Isn't the scarf fabulous?! It was so easy, and yet turns out so beautiful. I am a Handmaiden Sea Silk addict! There is a yarn that I can get from my supplier that is very similar to this silk, so I might have to dye up some and see how it goes.

Pattern: Montego Bay Scarf from Interweave Summer 2007
Yarn: Handmaiden Sea Silk in Moss
Measurements: 7" by 70" after blocking
Started: May 15, 2007
Finished: June 1, 2007
Other Details: I used a US7 rather than an 8 since it was all I had available. I had probably 30 yards of the yarn leftover, but am happy I ended it when I did since it has since stretched out a bit. Love it!

Such a lovely picture, of you and your honey AND the scarf. I happen to have a skein of SS, I must try that pattern. I think I was put off by the first line (cut 100 12" pieces of SS) but I know that is the proper order of these things.
