WIPW number 7




So here it is a week later, and you can't even tell that I've done a few more pattern repeats on the Morning Surf Scarf which I've renamed Ruby Waves. I loved all the comments last week about the pretty yarn!! For those of you who missed it, here is a pic of the yarn - it's Tili Thomas and is sooooo pretty!!!


Tili yarn

A few people asked me how it was to work with. It's really not a problem at all. The sequins are on a separate thread that run along with the yarn. Every once in a while, I'll come across a section that came unwound and have to make sure I have both loops in my next stitch. Other than that, you really don't notice the sequins as you knit - they don't get bulky or interfere at all. So, here is a creative shot of it hanging off my arm. My friend Trudy, who has become my unofficial photographer when she comes to Tuesday Knit Night, took this one!! I asked her to not get my face since I didn't blow dry hair!!! You can see another person's feet too which we thought was kinda funny!

  9. What a gorgeous yarn and pattern! It works up perfectly together. I always wondered if things like beads/sequins already in the yarn get in the way. Thanks for the review of the yarn. :)
