So originally I was going to give my mom my Charlotte’s Web – I’ve only worn it once, after all. But I decided against that at the last moment and decided to knit a triangular scarf out of the Hand Maiden Silk/Cashmere I bought at the Frolic. So….
11:30 pm. Casting on.
12:00 am. Six inches done.
1:30 am. After CSI and some other random TV-watching, I’m almost done, sort of.
2:10 am. Bind off take one.
2:30 am. Bind off take two – sewn bind off.
2:40 am. Blocking – using blocking wires!
In the light of the morning…all done.
Laura’s Last Minute Kercheif
1 skein Hand Maiden 2-ply silk and cashmere (300 m/50 g) or 200-250 m of laceweight yarn
1 set 6 mm (US 10) needles
With yarn doubled, cast on three stitches.
Every row: slip 1 pwise with yarn in front, knit to last stitch, yarn over, knit 1.
Repeat row until you’re almost out of yarn/time/patience.
Bind off using a stretchy bind off.
Block and you’re done!
