I also finished my ISE5 scarf, and it's all ready to send to my pal, once I pack up a few more goodies. This scarf was a lot more trouble than I had anticipated, but I think it came out nicely. I don't know why I kept messing up the simple lace pattern, but I did and always ended up ripping back many rows to get back on track. It's the Peaks and Valleys pattern from Heatstrings and I used Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in the Fall Foliage colorway. I love how the purple pops out. I think I noticed it every time I came to that section of the yarn. Doesn't take much to entertain me! A Major Award!
My Dishrag Tag buddy and intrepid blogger, Cathy-Cate, has chosen me for a "Nice Matters" award. She says: This award is to be given to "those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world." I appreciate the compliment and will strive to continue to uphold the virtures of niceness. I will proudly display the award logo. Thanks, Cathy. I'll consider carefully and then pass this award on to others.
And now I think I'll go outside and plant my garlic and tulip bulbs. We are having a dry, mild, day and you can't take that for granted around here at the end of October!
