A Koigu Diversion

A few years ago (3? 4?) while still living in California, my knitting group was overtaken by a moebius knitting frenzy. One of our fold, Karen, set things in motion and before long everyone was knitting moebiuses moebiuae moebi them. Fat ones, skinny ones, long ones, short ones, beaded, ribbed, and lace ones - you get the idea.

I seem to be missing that group more and more lately. Maybe it's the fall weather. Or perhaps even though I'm thousands of miles away, I'm sad because the LYS where we once gathered has closed its doors for good.

So I pulled out Cat Bordhi's book and my 47" Addi turbos and cast on the magical moebius stiches and thought of my Thursday night friends.

Koigu Moebius
Pattern: Basic Moebius Scarf a la Cat Bordhi
I cast on 130 stitches and worked a 5 row rib until it was wide enough
Needles: US 9 47" Addi Turbos
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM (ONE SKEIN!)

That's a really sweet scarf. I love the gentle color.

Have not yet been drawn into the world of that sorceress, Bordhi, but I expect to succumb eventually.

Sorry about the loss of the LYS--it's hard to lose places, isn't it? I was a military brat growing up, and one of the things I always do when visiting a former home-city is to try to find "our" house.

Hope the fall weather draws you outdoors and puts apples in your cheeks and gives you happy days.

Ooooooh, purty!!!!! Beautiful, actually. Is it for you? Do you share your brother's color scheme? :) I love it.

What a gorgeous scarf this is!
I hope you're having fall weather similar to ours - we're actually still having summer, temps are in the 90s, the sky is almost dark blue, it's hot enough to swim and hang around in the sun - amazing indeed, I can't remember any late September with such a weather! Sending many sunrays over to you, all across the ocean!

So pretty. The third chemo hat I started had a twist in it and I wasn't up for a mobeus style of hat so it was frogged.

Is there an LYS in Juneau that you can knit at when you aren't working?
