When stressed it results in a bad case of startitis. Granted, I finished the Infinity Scarf, I have now started the Wedge scarf in sock yarn. In fact, I am using the Madelintosh Sock Yarn which I picked up from Patricia's Yarns. It is a relatively quick pattern and if I actually paid attention the garter stitch bars would be even in between the lace.


Unfortunately, the return to scarves and the kerchiefs have led to the afghans being put on the side. Yet, I still find some yummy yarn for a blanket and I cannot resist. For example three skeins of Eco + on sale for a killer price at stix.


Before you ask, the answer is obviously another Hemlock Ring Blanket. The real question is do I make the blanket for myself or a family member.

Although, after the Wedge scarf is done, I am really contemplating about the Gaia Shoulder Hug on Noro Kureyon.


Yeah! I am sorta back.

Ben and I went to Hoboken this past Saturday for some exploration. We found a coffee shop where I tasted the most delicious drink called a Sugar and Spice Latte. It was a beautiful day to explore downtown Hoboken.

More importantly, I finally made it to Patricia's Yarn. This was a reconaissance mission. I loved the Madelentosh Yarn. The sock yarn above in Thricket color is being made into the Wedge scarf pattern from Berroco. I was really tempted by the Spud and Chloe Sweater yarn. Hmmm, I am definitely heading back to pick up that yarn. As well, they have a great selection of Koigu. If you stop by grab a bite to eat at the Hoboken Cafe (right up the block) as they crepes, paninis, and wraps.

Ironically, I have been knitting the 5th Avenue Infinity Scarf which one of the employees of PY designed. I had some skeins of SWTC Karaoke in the stash which came out oh so nicely.


It is a very easy pattern to memorize.
