than finding a mistake in your garter stitch?
It's a reknit of the cherry scarf, which I'd mentioned over a year earlier. I guess I just didn't like my uneven stitches, and the way I'd woven in the ends (kind of lumpy) that the cherries were't getting attached to the first scarf, which was knit up over two years ago. So it's being reknit with new yarn (yummy Jaeger extrafine merino), and because it's a gift, it has to be done soon, so no more dilly dallying! Anyway, I think I made that mistake because I started this right after I finished the last piece of Maris (from Rowan 41), whose second last stitch on every row was a purl. Here're the Maris pieces ready to be seamed up:
A trip to town to the notions store is in order. Maris is an open cardi, with the front bands flipped outwards, buttoned down on both sides. I can't decide between colorful buttons and pearl buttons on bleach white. Any thoughts on that?
