I've been on a cotton bender lately. A few weeks ago I demo-ed at a friends booth at an event and, once again, people were fascinated by the magic of cotton. To me, that's the only word to use. There is something so magical about how this stuff grows (the flowers change colors and the seeds burst their bolls), how it comes right off the seed and how it spins up. It was very satisfying to have women and men stand by me watching it all happen and being as entranced as I am. It's like we were all just standing back watching a wonder of nature unfold right before our eyes.
On a more wooly note, remember the Polworth yarn I was unhappy with? Here's what happened to it:
The scarf pattern is very simple. I cast on about 24 stitches and worked K2, P2 ribbing until I almost ran out of yarn then I crocheted the edge, including 3 loops for the buttons. I attached the buttons at an angle so it would sit right when around the neck. Easy, peasy.
