Ribbons of Hope Progress

This is just a quickie post. I received the most gorgeous silk yarn on Thursday and am working on the pattern, Ribbons of Hope, from The Unique Sheep. Last night I put in a goodly amount of work whilst watching all my favourite sci-fi shows so I thought I would put up a photo of the progress I've made.

For the math geeks out there (stand up and be proud!) I will share with you that I am 36% finished (yes, I figured rows per inch, number of inches needed, number of pattern repeats, all kinds of fun stuff). The colour may not be exact because I took the pic late at night and had to use a flash. Sorry about that.

I do love the pattern stitch but I can tell you that there are two rows out of the 12-row repeat that have numerous wraps around the needle and that particular movement is causing a bit of achiness in my right wrist. I had to quit last night after a few hours, put some Pain-a-trate on my wrist and took some ibuprofen. I think a good overnight rest has helped and I'm raring to go today.

That is an absolutely beautiful scarf. You're keeping that one, correct? You should!

This is the scarf I am making for the trunk show for The Unique Sheep. I don't get to keep it - oh well. I will enjoy the soft scrumptious-ity of it whilst knitting on it, though.

BTW, Giuli wants a blanket from this yarn. Yeah, we figured it would cost over $200 - don't think it's going to happen!
