Pattern: Backyard Leaves by Annie Modesitt from Scarf Style
Yarn: Shibui Knits Baby Alpaca DK in Wasabi, two skeins (but with a lot left over)
Needles: Bamboo size 8s
I'm very happy with the scarf, and hope that my SIL will like it. It's really soft, but I think it could still go for a bath in Soak to soften it up a bit.
I played volleyball for the first time in three years on Tuesday night. It was a lot of fun, but I'm still in pain! All of the crouching and diving around the floor... ouchy. Yesterday morning my arms were so swollen, I couldn't fasten my watch in the usual hole. But I do know that I'm hitting the ball in exactly the right place! Perhaps my gleeful experience in letting my gym membership expire this spring wasn't the best thing ever...
And GO YANKEES!
