Airy is done

I finished the airy scarf today, she's blocking on the board now. I added 5 additional repeats to the pattern to make it longer. When I do another, I will double the kid silk. It was very hard to work with. I'm a tight knitter and it was extremely hard for me to knit loosely. I can't imagine working with this with a project on smaller needles.

I'm frogging clapotis. I just do not like the yarn, the colors, I was using. I was drawn to knit it after I saw Wendy's. She knit her's with Noro silk garden. I was trying to be a good girl and use up some stash. The entire time I was knitting it, I kept thinking, I'm not sure if I like this yarn, maybe I'll like it once I drop stitches. Well... I gave up and ordered some Silk garden from webs last night.

In the mean time, I'm trying to finish socks for my niece. I can only work on them for a short time each day because my hands hurt from the tiny( size 1) needles.
I have a easy scarf/ shawl project that I work on at night when I'm tired, so this project will get some attention until I receive my Noro.

"Airy" is the perfect name for that scarf. It's sooo lacy. Did those yarn overs drive you crazy? I have yet to try lace knitting. Maybe that'll be next on my agenda.

I found your site through Saunielle's site. Good to meet you.

Your Airy Scarf is so pretty. Love the color, as usual! :) I'm using almost the same yarn for my Clapotis!!
