One Row Sedona Scarf

One Row Lace Scarf

I was browsing through patterns on Ravelry a couple weeks ago and came across the pattern One Row Lace Scarf by Turvid, and I really liked the look of it. I also thought it would be a really great choice for my donation to the Community Support Silent Auction at work, because it looked like a really fast knit.

I used the skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts STR medium weight in the Sedona colorway, that had been floating around in my stash for the last year or so. I think it looks pretty good but I really want to try it out in a dark color with a more subtle variegation.

I was really impressed with how quickly this knit up, it only took me a couple days, and after the first row or two of the lace pattern, didn't even need to think about it anymore.

Weaving in the Rods

Blocking things is usually a bit of a pain but the gauge is so loose on this that, it went really quickly.

Pined Down

Once it was blocked the dimensions were 63 1/2"x6 3/4", and I have enough yarn left over that I can definitely get another scarf out of it, or a nice sized mitered square(if I was to have aspirations of making a barn raising quilt).

The scarf it's self is light and airy and I think it'll work great for wearing indoors or during the summer. I'm even thinking of using bigger needles and worsted weight yarn, to make a wrap with it.

Tomatoes, Tomatoes, Tomatoes

I swear they're taking over my life!

I've taken three loads similar to this one into work already because we just can't keep up with them. We have 4 bushes and they've just gone totally wild, the Mini Romas, Chocolate Cherry, and Cherry varieties are producing fruit at a nearly exponential rate.

I'm still not keeping up with them, everyday there's more.
