FO: Raha scarf in 100% Qiviut

July 2, 2009

This took a few months to finish up, mostly as I didn’t work on it.  A good solid week in San Diego took care of that however!  I made 13 repeats of the lace pattern, and the length is perfect for a good office/spring/fall scarf.  The lightness, softness, and warmth of qiviut are unmatched!

Qiviut Raha finished

I wore this with my summer dress in the office today as the air conditioning was on full blast, which made for a chilly morning.  The natural brown coordinates with many outfits, and is a lovely soft colour.  The pattern is from Lace Knitting of Estonia by Nancy Busy, the yarn is from Cottage Crafts Angora in Quebec, I used one ball of yarn. 

Well, its official: Mr. J and I are shacked up, living in sin, etc.  We’re on Day 2, and so far no one has killed the other yet, in fact I think we’re both enjoying it.  It will be much better once he’s all moved in, and the boxes get out of the garage.  Tuesday was all about moving vans, so yesterday, Canada Day, was very low key for us.  We worked around the house, took it easy, and worked on getting things settled, and stuff put away.  It was also Mr. J’s birthday, so I bought him beer, and made him dinner.  Men can be so easy to please at times!  He already learned a very important family rule (this one goes way back, way before my time in my family) “When ya take a cold beer outta da fridge, youse put a new one in”. 

I hope all my Canadian friends had a great Canada Day, and to all of you south of the border, Happy July 4th!

    Hey, congratulations and good luck. I imagine things will be just fine once and hopefully the adjustment won’t take too long.
