In Love with Karabella Aurora

Before Paige and I began her scarf, I had never heard of Karabella Aurora yarn, but now that I have worked with it a little; I am in love. It's so soft and easy to work with. It also has great stitch definition, which I like too. I also notice that A Good Yarn has it for $7.25 a skein, so I'll have to remember that I can get it cheaper than the $8.95 I paid. The pattern for the "Ravenclaw" scarf is done in the round, which makes Paige happy because she's not into purling. I'm not crazy about using circulars myself, particularly since the only circulars I had that were short enough for the circumference of the scarf are some cheap plastic ones that I've had forever. That's about the extent of knitting going on this week.

I am planning to proofread my proposal one more time and send it in, then I'll have to celebrate by having a relaxing weekend of working on my Debbie Bliss dress. I even have a recipient picked out if I can hurry before she gets much bigger!
