Birch is a WRAP!

Yep folks, she is a thick scarf or a wrap... You choose! What went wrong? For some reason my super scientific methods (a.k.a a lot of markers to hold count)got really messed up and I decided to cast off. Birch is really beautiful and ripping her was out of the question! I don't rip mohair with a good conscious ;) So here she is...










I started the Jaywalkers from Lornas Laces for my Sock pal! yeah, the ribbing is finally done and I am starting the zig zag pattern now. Not to much progress on it so I will give pics next post! By the way I LOVE lornas laces sock yarn! it doesn't even feel like wool!

Kpixie has their second order up on the website already! I am so excited. They sold so well last week that they requested more and the shipment must have arrived today :)

On a worrisome note Chris's marrow donation has been put on hold for now.... They found something wrong with his liver and he needs to be assessed further before he can donate his stem cells....They found a cyst in his liver so I am not sure if or when they will biopsy.......

y'all keep it cool!

Birch is beautiful and congratulations on you markers. Hope Chris is all right. At least with all that testing they found the cyst early, hopefully before it was problematic. Keep us posted.

I found Birch a bit tough after about 4 rows.....and I have knit lace before.

It looks great as a scarf.

Good luck with Chris. Hope it is nothing serious.

Your Birch scarf is gorgeous! I hate when the counting gets messed up, but I'm so glad that you were able to salvage it and wind up with a beautiful scarf in the process!! It really is gorgeous in that mohair. My thoughts and prayers with Chris. I hope that it isn't serious. Take care!
