In November, I and a few gal pals are planning to make the trek to see our dearly departed friend, Flip Flopping Mama. Included in this whirlwind tour of one day is a scheduled visit to St. Louis to go shopping, fondle yarn, and see Pioneer Woman at her cookbook signing.
Since we are all avid reader's of PW's blog, Flip Flopping Mama and I decided to contribute a bit of handknit cheer to the woman who has provided so many hours of hysterical laughter. F-F Mama (I'm getting tired of typing all that out, sorry) is knitting her some gorgeous fingerless gloves (because PW is a photographer, and it's hard to photograph with stuff on your fingers), and I'm knitting her a matching scarf.
This pattern was so much fun to knit (Just Enough Ruffles), and I whipped it out in (get this) TWO DAYS. Yes! A shorter scarf worked on size 9 needles is a pretty fast piece, and great for mindless knitting. It's just simple stockinette worked with short rows and a ruffle added on last.
PW has red hair, which can making matching something a bit difficult. F-F Mama and I debated using a black yarn, but that wouldn't work well with a black coat, so we ultimately decided to go with the always lovely Caron Simply Soft Heathers in the Truffle colorway.
Okay, scarf done, gloves almost done, now time to line up some baby sitters (*ahem* suckers) and pack our bags!
St. Louis, here we CCCCCCCCCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMEE!
