The yarn is Filatura di Crosa "Zara" which is heavenly soft. I've been itching to make something with this yarn for ages so now the itch has been satisfied. Mind you, I came across a pattern in the latest issue of Yarn for finger-less mittens which uses Zara, so I'm tempted to make them as well. (ok... I'll admit that I've already bought the yarn... shhh.... don't tell anyone!)
Where was I? Oh... the Moebius Strip Scarf. I made it on a 4.5mm Addi Turbo circular needle which was very nice to knit with. Not sure whether I prefer them to bamboo. S was v. happy with the end result. She wore it to the Coldplay concert that we went to on Sunday evening.
Gratuitous concert shot of Chris Martin hunched over the piano whilst performing "Clocks".
Concert was great. We had a Superbox (beer, wine, tea, coffee, our own barman), music was excellent, Chris Martin could outlast the Energizer bunny and we decided that he probably does yoga with Gwyneth on a regular basis (v. flexible).
On the quilting front, I'm making progress on the Mossy Variation piecing for Aunty M's birthday quilt.
I made the decision on Sunday to make the quilt into an octagonal shape, rather than keeping it square. It's going to be a throw-rug size anyway, and the shape seems to lend itself to the design - or perhaps it's the design that lends itself to the shape.
