Pattern: Palindrome Scarf (<--click for free pattern)
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk
Needles: Size 10
What I really like about this scarf is that it is completely reversible. The yarn I used has a "halo" and I would recommend using a solid color worsted though it calls for DK. I added a cable repeat and increased the needles by one size and also added two rows between repeats. The scarf in the picture has not yet been blocked. The true color is a peacock blue and not anywhere close to what the camera captured.
Last week I purchased this delicate wash for my handknits. A little expensive at $11 for the bottle, you only use 1/2 tsp. per half gallon of water. With no rinsing involved, I don't know how I ever lived without this soap. I purchased the lavendar scent which is delicate and acts as a moth repellant. The wash also comes in smaller bottles.

Obsessed, possessed, addicted or passionate.....well, I know that passionate fits the description when it comes to my knitting. However, my soap buying purchases of the past week may fall in another one of those categories. I was shopping today at a store that announced a special on hand soap. Hello!!!! that's what I was there for as I was already swishing water in my soap dispenser trying to get the last of the soap till I could get to the store. This soap was 27 cents a bottle so I purchased a dozen bottles. And yes, I've tried it and I do like it.
