I reached the end of the secret knitting and I am shipping it off along with all the extra yarn *sob* today. The pretty, pretty silk was used for some I-cords and a bit of trim on the main part. (Fear not, designer! I pulled the I-cords away before Scout got to them.) The I-cords will be attached to the final piece, but the designer wants to attach them herself. I don't feel like I can show you any more of it. Believe me, this is a cute little piece.
Anyway, as sad as I am to see the pretty yarn go, I'm also happy to be back to my own knitting. Right before I got the call to knit the secret project, I ordered some yarn for Rogue! Look! It's not pink! Or red! And do you see that thing sticking out of the end of the skein? Believe it or not folks, that is the center end of the center-pull skein. No fishing around in the skeins for the ends. Now, why can't other companies be so kind? Would it really be that hard?
Oh yeah, it's Cestari 2-ply wool. It is supposedly naturally superwash. I intend to test that. Swatching will commence
