Off to the Races Scarf swatch.

A brief update...I swatched for the Off to the Races Scarf. The yarn came out DK weight, so I dropped from the recommended needle size of 15 for the Bulky weight to size 11. The stitches were too big, and I lost a lot of definition. So I ripped out and reknit in size 10. Much better. Because of the multicolored yarn, I'm still losing stitch definition, but I think when I block it, at least the YOs will show up better, and it'll still be pretty.


And Addy wanted to say,"Hi!". Isn't she a doll!!!

Why thank you, Teri! I'm proud of my baby girl!

I think it is really awesome the way you live with your family. That provides some much off all the necessary needs we all need in life. In a way I envy you, but in a good way. Love you. Teri.

PS: You have a beautiful family.

Love your scarf... my wrap ended up being frogged last night, UGH. That's what I get for trying to work on it when I wasn't feeling well...

Give that Addy a smooch for me! She's such a cutie.
