Flit'n Float Scarf

Knitting seems to have taken high priority over blogging. I can knit while enjoying the great outdoor weather here in northern New Mexico.  The bugs have mostly gone for the season so we took down the screen room.  Sure adds dimension to our "outdoor living room" and gives me so much pleasure to sit outside to knit when the chores are done.

Without further ado, I will show the project just off the needles:  King Arthur Flit 'n Float Scarf.  I used one ball (400m) of the Juno's alpaca yarn won last spring.  The pattern is one I had loved and wanted to knit since I first saw it, Flit'n Float Scarf  by Birdy Evans published in Spring 2009 Knitty online magazine.  This is a dream of a yarn and pattern to work with, although I had to tease my friend Birdy that she had not put in instructions to me specifically to put in a lifeline.  When I dropped a stitch in the first chart, I did have to frog and start the chart over again.  Lifelines were inserted regularly after that.

The project when from this:
