The Lonestar State Knitters Yahoo Group held a Dog Days of Summer Scarf Swap. Members who signed up knit a scarf to send to the swap partner. Who would be sending your gift scarf to you was a mystery, known only to the organizer. I received my scarf yesterday. It was knit in a wonderfully soft silk and bamboo yarn and is a lovely teal blue. It also uses two of my favorite stitches, cables and lace.
Caroline M from Austin also gifted me with a pair of embroidery sissors. They are just right to fit into my newest project bag. Sure wish the weather would cool so I could wear the scarf.
