Not that there's anything wrong with that . . . .

deborah said...

Wow, Irene, what a beautiful pattern.

PETER V. BELLA said...

Deborah, I was going to say the same thing. The close-up shows how awesome that scarf is! Irene, if you're reading this, my birthday is in September! Thanks doll.

Lem said...

Is Irene selling those?

It would make a nice Valentines/Mothers day gift.

Lem said...

OMG.. Althouse was reloading with that hand.

Not helpful ;)

bagoh20 said...

That is an awesome scarf, Irene!

Irene said...

Gee, thanks everybody!

@ deborah, the pattern for the scarf derives from this cover design.

I've knitted it as a sweater three times.

(@bagoh, knitting keeps me sane.)

Lem, sorry, but I never sell my knitted stuff.

David said...

Meadesy-poo, want a little rub down?

edutcher said...

Lucky Meade. He gets to warm those hands.

And cheeks.

Lem said...

Ok, I was just curious..

Irene, what Deborah said, that is gorgeous work and the color perfect on Althouse.

Jeez Althouse, you sure know how to make a Florida boy feel inadequate.
First a house set to 62 degrees, then ice boating, and now barehanded snowball fights! Our house is now set to 70 degrees and I am freezing! You 60 year old northerners are tough!

Chip Ahoy said...

Irene, you're quite the witty knitter. Is that your own design?

Chip Ahoy said...

Oh, I see your upper post.

I used this photo (and an idea from a commenter) on my blog - because I thought they were so "cool".

Hope no one minds.

Absurdity of the Day: Canada Bans Dire Straits' "Money For Nothing" for Being Too Offensive. No, I'm Not Kidding.

BJM said...

Have you shagged your bob more recently? I like it, very sexy. Try Sally Herschberger's Shagg Spray it is majorly cool.

Nothing wrong with capitalism, Irene. It's the American way! :-)

@ Kent

Re: Canucks ban Dire Straits: Sounds like a bad case of brain freeze up there, eh? Those hosers better hope for some global warming to thaw their brains out.

Irene, nice knitting. I'm wearing hand-knit socks today (the wife's doing).

Are you on ravelry, like my wife is?

Pogo said...

Way cool gift, Irene.

I have trouble making even snowballs.

We need a close-up of Martha's hat.

traditionalguy said...

This Cold Hands Cafe has all warm hearted comments. Stay classy, commenters.

Pogo said...

My son took a ceramics class (he's a high school senior). His teacher said she liked his 'soap dish'.

It was a flattened cat, with a depression and tire markings across the middle. He told her it was road kill.

For this I pay tuition.

Irene said...

MadisonMan, thanks. I am on Ravelry!

Deb said...

Thanks for the close up. Irene, I'm on ravelry too; I will look for you. Beautiful scarf!

Deb said...

Meet our new foster puppy, Zoe, who was just a few hours away from being euthanized.

Deb said...

Thanks for posting the picture; I just realized I could click on the picture & view the larger size. Duh.

Irene said...

Deb, Zoe is lovely!

Deb said...

thanks Irene. She is a sweetheart.

deborah said...

Irene, thanks for the link. I knit some, but would never attempt anything that intricate! What is the name and brand of the scarf color, please?

Deb, Zoe is adorable. I have a Zoe also, as does my second cousin's husband. A beautiful name.

Irene said...

Deborah, the yarn is "Classic Elite, Inca Alpaca." I believe the color is discontinued, The color is a pale sage. The scarf, worked over 71 sts, takes five skeins. Look for the yarn at Webs (yarn.com).


Auto-correct tried to change "sts" to "STD".

"Auto-correct tried to change "sts" to "STD"."

Scarf-transmitted disease! Like the Puritans and the Indians and the smallpox!

Irene said...

Althouse, LOL.

deborah said...

Thanks for the info, Irene. Alpaca, huh...cool.

(Auto-check needs to get it's mind out of the gutter ;)
