It all started here...


Here? Where is Here?
Here is Camden, Maine.
Specifically, the Cashmere Goat Yarn Shop.
It's delicious.
Seriously.
They have an incredible variety of yarn, a nice wide open shop with a back room that also doubles as a classroom not to mention holds more scrumptious yarns to squeeze, oooh and ahhh over.
Specifically though, they carry a couple local yarns to Maine.
1. Swan Island yarn (I bought 2 skeins of the Worsted Merino in color Logwood and 1, skein of fingering in natural white... Kicking myself for not buying all they had in stock because it's, it's wonderful)
2. String Theory (I didn't buy a skein of this and don't worry, I've kicked myself plenty for it)


So, as mentioned I picked up 2 skeins of the Swan Island Worsted Merino in Logwood. I already had a project in mind for it. Michelle Wangs Eternity Scarf. It used to be free on Ravelry but was reworked last fall in conjuction with Brooklyn Tweed's yarns and now the pattern is for sale for $6.00 on Ravelry...


totally worth it.
buy it.
You'll make a gazillion of them like I have.


It took me four days to crack this out.
FOUR. DAYS.

It flew off the needles.

Now, not that I'm rushing summer out the door but this girl could use a cold snap to show off her new accessory...
Looks like I'll be driving around with the A/C cranked up in the car again until Mother Nature cooperates.

needs some weaving and a wash but isn't it wonderful?
Details:
pattern: Eternity Scarf by Michelle Wang
yarn: Swan Island Merino in color Logwood
needles: size 9 29" circular

You can order Swan Island directly thru their website here: https://www.swansislandcompany.com/products/yarn-patterns

Or do a search online to see who all carries it... Maybe your LYS has some squirreled away in their store... If they do, snatch it up, snatch it all up, you'll have deep regrets if you don't. 

back to Ivy Trellis Sock II using my new Karbonz dpn's I picked up at the Cashmere Goat... I'm still undecided about them but I think a lot of my man friends are impressed that they make carbon fiber knitting needles...
