I have some wonderful knitting friends.  They offer to help with everything from knitting samples to updating my newsletter list.  And they make pattern suggestions.  One friend recently recommended a cute, quick scarf project.  She was on a roll with this pattern and had made several fun, colorful scarves that didn't take much time or yarn. What's not to love?  I tucked away the pattern idea for future reference.

Yesterday I had a meeting - an opportunity for knitting time.  The only requirement was that the meeting project had to be small and mindless.  None of my current projects fit the bill, so I started thinking of other options.  I remembered the cute, little scarf and looked up the details.  Perfect.

DanDoh Scarf.

Two hundred stitches and 30 rows of stockinette with strategically placed decreases and increases in the middle.  A ribbon of ruffles.

A keyhole is the finishing touch.

The cast off tail is joined to the first cast on stitch.


Like my friend I'm sure I'll have to make more than one.  A bright, colorful ruffle makes a fun accessory.

The yarn is an Alpaca / Merino / Silk blend I have available only at shows.

DanDoh will make a nice addition to the project options for this yarn.

I think of berries only in the summer, but my daughter had a craving and came up with this berry treat.  My color inspiration for the week.

So pretty, so pink.

Thanks for this week's color inspiration. So nice to think of those pink, pink berries in this dismal, snowy winter.
