I prefer reversible scarves (even if I don’t always knit them) and this was a lot of fun to knit. Brioche isn’t hard but the cables required a bit of thought to make sure I put them in (mostly) the right place. You can see the cables in more detail here. This was the project that taught me why a chunk of $2 plastic (aka a stitch counter) can be more efficient than paper & pencil at keeping track of which row of the 21 row repeat I’m on.
It seems that this is the time of year that Squeaky likes to squeak, though this time he sounds like he’s croaking. I oiled all places I know to oil so it’s something else rubbing and driving E and I crazy. How do I know that Squeaky is squeaking? I’ve been spinning! I know, I’m surprised too. I finishing spinning the singles and am finishing plying up (between looking for that squeak) some very lovely BFL I bought from Jessica a while back. I need to WPI but I have about 120 yards so far.
