Just back from our biennial trip to France--in case you were wondering why I've been so quiet the past few weeks. I always have to take some kind of handwork to pass the time while away from my usual creative space. This year, I was working on an infinity cowl. So far, I've used 2 skeins of this "Scottish Heather" yarn that has little sequins incorporated into it. I love a little bling! It reminds me of sparkling fish scales. 1 more skein to go ... If I had brought it along, this would be finished now. I used up the yarn I brought in the first week of vacation. You'll see it again when it's finished. ;-)
If you like that lacy look, the pattern comes from here. (Thanks, Alicia for sharing the pattern!) Each row has been a nice meditation, and not at all difficult if you know how to single and double crochet. I never did get the hang of knitting, but I've been crocheting since I was a kid. Actually--the last crochet project I did was probably when I was 18 years old.
