Two by two

My beautiful tweed yarn for Olivier has arrived.  Thank you for helping me choose this color...I love it!


I've cast on - of course - and I'm most of the way through this interminable rib section.  Whew!  Have to say this yarn is such a treat to knit that I'd be happy to knit any pattern for a long time.  I think the cables are going to be fun, though, and I can hardly wait to get there.  ETA:  sometime today.

While I was waiting for the yarn order to get here, I started an easy lace pattern scarf.  It's a free Ravelry pattern called the Rejuva Scarf.    The designer is Kim Smith from Knitting Matters.
 

Isn't this yarn pretty?  My daughter's friend loves to knit - and buy yarn.  Sometimes, she parts with a bit of her stash - this is a gifted yarn.  New yarn is a lot like new clothes:  gotta start using it right away!  Thanks, Betty!  I'll save this for those days when I'm tired of looking at green - as if! - or, more likely,  the skies are dreary with fall.  This is the most amazing cherry pink and will brighten up any day.

I'm off to knit.

Love that teal color, and tweed (always) and the pattern.

I can't wait to see your cables! You're such a fabulous Knitter that I'm sure you could work wonders with any yarn.

Peg and Jeanette - the color isn't as teal-y as my camera makes it. Just think a little greener than teal. Very nice yarn, though.

Ginny - I knew you'd love that pink!

Rudee - thanks...I consider that a great compliment coming from someone I think is a fabulous knitter.
