Received my order from peapod studio yesterday – and love it, of course! Very well made, and the seller was super friendly. So friendly that I’ll be going back there and ask for some custom made stuff I’m too lazy to sew myself later.
Got a couple of uni-ball signo bits 0.18mm as well, from jstationery. One violet, one purple. Not a shock if you know me at all ;) I like them both, but one seems to write better than the other. Maybe some more “breaking in” is required. Anyway, not at all as scratchy as I worried they might be. I think I’m getting addicted to thin pens…
The scarf looks a lot better in real life, because, you know, you can actually see the pattern. I didn’t bother blocking it, mohair is so fuzzy anyway, I don’t see the point. The pattern is k1, *yo, k2tog* to one stitch is left, then knit that last stitch. Repeat until you can do it in your sleep with one hand tied on your back while solving complicated math problems… by then, you’ll be about halfway.
Finished with a row of single crochet on each end – but that’s not really necessary.
