Morning in Folsom

It is a lovely morning in Folsom with the sun shining and a cool breeze. Very pleasant after 102F earlier in the week.

The vest is coming along nicely.  I have only done 6 rows of ribbing and about 8 rows of stocking stitch I will not bother posting a photo today.

As it is so plain, which is fine, it will be my project to knit when chatting with friends on Sundays or travelling in the car. I will not have to count rows as it is knit in one piece to the armholes and there is not a back and front to match row for row. Had I started it earlier in the week it would also have been a good project to take to the Sacramento Knitting Guild meeting on Thursday evening.

The project I took to knit at the meeting was a scarf pattern that I had knit before. The pattern is out of Vogue Knitting Scarves book One and it is called Mock Cable-Rib Scarf. I was lucky enough to still have three balls of Adrienne Vittadini Aria yarn that the sample in the book is knitted in.

This is actually the third time I have knit this scarf. The first two scarves were made, also out of Aria, and I gave them to two cousins when their Mother passed away.  I could not be with them to give them a hug so the scarves were my hugs to them both. I think this one will also be a gift either a birthday present or perhaps a Christmas present this year.

It is a lovely scarf to make and it would now be interesting to knit it in another yarn to see how the pattern would look in a non felted yarn.
