Thursday night, hoping beyond hoping that I might be able to have pictures and everything else prepared, I powered through and finished the last few rows on my Mezzaluna in Knit Picks Chroma Elfin. Using Chroma I was only able to get 17 rows-- so no border. But I like it all the same.
The size is very generous-- nearly 80 inches along the top edge. I really loved working with Chroma. It is a single ply, and has a slight thick & thin characteristic, but I enjoyed working with it.
Last week I finished my Oveja scarf, and wore it as soon as I wove the ends in. I love the border along the long edge, such a different design element than the patterns I usually make.

If you look carefully, you can see the last row is a solid peachy-pink color. This color is one of a pack of mini-skeins that I received in a swap. It was the closest match in color when I went scrambling through my yarn, trying to find something that worked. You see, my plan originally was to use the half skein of Stroll Tonal Pearlescent that I had left from my Pearl Wrap. But I must have looked at the 2 skeins together in bad light, and I was convinced that they matched. They don't. So, I really want this to be a bigger scarf. And I dont want to frog it all. There are 400 yards in the mini-skein pack-- 40 yards in each mini-skein. Here are my possibilities:
|1 & 2|
|3 & 4|
|5 & 6|
