WIP Wednesday (or the WIP Wednesday that almost didn’t happen)

I was all set to start writing this post this morning, when I had to go do something.  I had all the pictures and everything.  But better late then never, right?

Another No One’s Cowl.  I have another rep to go and then the garter and I’m done.  I should probably finish this up tonight.

Due to a lovely sale at Interweave (linky here), I bought a couple of patterns that I really liked, Boteh being one of them.  (The other two patterns I bought were Printed Silk Cardigan and Apres Surf Hoodie, both by Connie Chang Chinchio.)  I immediately started the Boteh scarf because I had the perfect yarn: Chroma in Galapagos.  I had a problem with some color changes, but I’ll get to it when it comes along.  Right now, this pattern is AWESOME.  If you’ve never done Boteh before, you should try it.  I hardly ever jump on a bandwagon, but it’s just sooo good.

After a hiatus, I went back to “The Bookworm’s Scarf.”  Unfortunately, I think my gauge changed.  I’m not sure if I should rip it back, or what.  It’s different enough that you can see the difference.  -Sigh-  So, back to a time out?

    That’s the worst thing about WIPs, when your tension changes during the hiatus, and you can’t manage to find the right tension again. Needless to say, I think you’re in pretty good company on that.

    That is one of my favorite Chroma colorways, and the pattern is absolutely perfect for it!!!
